Herman Hueg wrote four books on confections and baking, including Ornamental Confectionery and the Art of Baking in All its Branches (1905), and Book of Designs for Bakers and Confectioners (1896). Hueg was a renounced baker and confectioner. He expanded his reach by moving into selling tools and other implements for bakers to help replicate the skilled work, such as molds and stencils. This approach is taken in this volume, which begins with a series of recipes for sugar spinning, caramels, nut bars, taffy, ice cream, bonbons, syrups and more. The latter portion of the book has several pages dedicated to interesting baking implements, which are nicely illustrated.
