Don't let the title fool you, this cookbook is fun for all ages.

Pansino starts with the building blocks of baking, using easy to follow recipes that will be used throughout to create deliciously nerdy desserts. Rather than grouping her creations by pies, cakes, and cookies, she groups them by interest, allowing readers to quickly find their obsession of choice.

It can be complex at times, but overall this is a solid, fun cookbook.
