The book will be published in May under the Mitchell Beazley imprint, and will include 40 recipes and tips on how to party like a Candy Kitten. It will be aimed at the young teenage audience, and will include recipes for Candy Kitten Cake Pops, Sour Watermelon Jelly Jewels and Trillionaries Shortbread. It will also feature interactive videos which can be accessed through an iPhone or Android phone.
