    A few years ago, my son introduced me to Rosanna Pansino's YouTube cooking webshow called Nerdy Nummies and we have been logging in to watch every week since. Rosanna is the cutest little chef you will ever see and she makes fairly simple-to-follow snacks and treats that are themed with all things nerdy. Over the years, my son and I have recreated several of her recipes with fun success! When I saw she had a cookbook coming out, there was no doubt we would be adding a copy to our kitchen. And...

Rosanna is the cutest little chef you will ever see and she makes fairly simple-to-follow snacks and treats that are themed with all things nerdy. Over the years, my son and I have recreated several of her recipes with fun success! When I saw she had a cookbook coming out, there was no doubt we would be adding a copy to our kitchen. And... she went on a nationwide book signing tour in the U.S. so we were able to catch her for a meet and greet! To say my son was in heaven is an understatement and after it was all over the excitement continued as we devoured her cookbook. The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook: Sweet Treats for the Geek in All of Us is super cute, it has gorgeous photos, and the recipes will have youth, adults, and families all excited for the next opportunity to cook! If interested, you can find Rosanna's YouTube channel HERE. Also, she has filmed two holiday-themed shows for the Cooking Channel called Ro's Tasty Treats so keep an eye out for reruns or any future shows. Enjoy!

    In theory, I love this book. It has the cutest sweet treats I've ever seen. Some of them are too pretty to eat, but that wouldn't stop me. But in reality, this book makes me angry because never in my life would I make any of it. I don't have that kind of time. And as nerdy as I am, when it would come time to actually assemble everything, I know I would suddenly just stop caring. So essentially: Cute in theory, time-consuming and tiring in practice.

    Clear instructions with lots of photos, the foods look delicious, and it just feels kind. No backhanded stabs at other types of nerds, or jocks, or people who aren't up on the latest memes. Just fun cute delicious nerdy baked goods.

    This was absolutely adorable. I love Ro's Youtube show, and this cookbook is just as awesome as her show. The recipes look great, and the cookbook itself was a joy to read. I can't wait to make these recipes. I also think a lot of these would be great for kids to make (I'm thinking about making some of these with my niece!).

    The cookbook is filled with the most nerdy and creative treats of the whole cookbook history. Sometimes, I just wanna eat the whole book. Yes, it's that delicious.

    This is a cute cookbook to look through, but it will only be really useful if you've got a very specific need to make a nerdy dessert. The cake that looks like a computer's motherboard and the apple pi pie were my two favorite recipes that I think I might actually make some day. The most ridiculous was the Periodic Table of Cupcakes, because no one in their right mind is going to tackle a project that requires you to make 8 dozen cupcakes, like 8 different colors of buttercream frosting, plus 80+ This is a cute cookbook to look through, but it will only be really useful if you've got a very specific need to make a nerdy dessert.

In the words of Sweet Brown, "Ain't Nobody Got Time For That!" Not even the most talented of all the Pinterest Mavens. But she gets props for creativity and colorfulness and a dead easy recipe for fondant made from marshmallows that I will use forever!

    So cute!! Only 4/5 because the purpose of this cookbook is more to just look at all the cute recipes, but none of them are feasible to make. A solid 75% of these recipes (easily more) all deal with fondant, like I have the time to fuck with that? And every single one uses tons of food coloring, which is really not healthy and is super annoying if you've got food coloring allergies. Would've been cool if she added a blurb about natural food coloring options, like beet juice or turmeric, etc.

    The recipes in this book looked very ascetically pleasing, but the recipes were actually very complicated and involved. This book seemed to focus more on the look rather than the taste. I would describe this more as a decorating book, not a cookbook.

    Got this as a Christmas gift for my 13 yr old niece who has started to enjoy baking. I think this baking cookbook appeals to kids teens and adults. She has basic cookie and cake recipes at the beginning. Then she has these really creative bakes that takes those basics with some decoration to turn it into something spectacular. She sticks to a nerdy theme, that the decorations turn into something to do with science (brain cake) or astronomy (constellation cookies) or fantasy (unicorn poop cookies Got this as a Christmas gift for my 13 yr old niece who has started to enjoy baking.

Some require special tools and planning, but would be a fun way to plan to spend a Sunday afternoon.

    I think it's quite poetic that I chose to read Rosanna Pansino's The Nerdy Nummies Cookbook on Pi Day. The nerd in me is squealing. I have, occasionally, seen Pansino's YouTube channel, Nerdy Nummies, and have enjoyed her bubbly personality and her sheer imaginative genius with her cake skills. This cookbook is pretty amazing. It made me jealous that I do not have the patience to such works of art.

This cookbook is pretty amazing. It made me jealous that I do not have the patience to such works of art. The Periodic Table of Elements cupcakes, the Earth and chessboard cakes, and the Motherboard cakes are just few examples of the recipes here. Pansino does a good job explaining the process and it was very smart of her to include basic recipes in the beginning like rich chocolate cake and butter cake. There's even a recipe for royal icing. This is the perfect book for people who love baking and science or video games.

    Although many people don't willingly read cookbooks from cover to cover, yes, including the index, I'm sure many people have done just that. Well, maybe just up to the acknowledgments. Every recipe was fun to read, not make, just READ! The wording, background, and funny puns throughout the book kept me strong in times, especially around the brain cake, when I wanted to tap out and go eat something. Great job Ro!

The wording, background, and funny puns throughout the book kept me strong in times, especially around the brain cake, when I wanted to tap out and go eat something. Great job Ro! I have, as of today, only made two batches of the lemon sugar cookies, minus the zest, one batch of the royal icing, minus any technique at all, and one batch of the white cake, minus the vegetable shortening, almond extract, and measuring. As you can tell, I don't pride myself on baking. This book, however, will inspire me to get creative with my decorations, ingredients, and styles of baking. Me reading this cookbook is the definition of 'from guesses to measuring cups'. We do have a fully stocked kitchen, I just never use it. Ro's youtube channel is great fun as well, so if you don't like reading, I have two recommendations. 1, get off of Goodreads. If you don't like reading, you have no right to be here. And 2, go check out Rosanna Pansino's youtube channel and watch her do all the work for you... but you don't get to eat anything...

    3.5 Stars. I think this book is absolutely adorable. So many awesome ideas for nerdy and geeky stuff! My only complaint is some of it looks like it would be so time consuming, but that’s more of a bother for me personally. If you have the time to make everything in here I think that’s great! Although not everything is hard, many of the designs are easier. Definitely one to have in your baking library.

    This book's execution is a masterpiece, but still only gets 4 stars. I think that if you're a Pinterest master or capable of Sugar Rushesque, television-quality cakes and whatnot, this book will be mindbogglingly easy for you. For the rest of us, this is filled with unattainable, lofty gastronomic creations that tease you. Read at your own risk, but prepare to have your dreams dashed. Maybe 10% of these will actually end up like the pictures, methinks.

    At first, I was extremely disappointed. The first chapter? Nothing new. Nothing special. Oh duh, she's giving the tools to make the cool things later. Some clever ideas. Lotta time required for everything. Don't know if I'll ever make anything, but I really liked the Geode Cupcakes.

    Fun food projects. She has some very interesting ideas. I sent this to my granddaughter thinking she might enjoy making a volcano or other science type cake for her budding four year old science enthusiast.

    So not what I was expecting. I really thought it would be a lot of recipes inspired by geekery things and shows... not a whole bunch of complicated decorated normal food. Disappointed. :(

    Some of the recipes are well beyond my baking abilities (which admittedly are not great anyway), but my daughter loves this cookbook and the recipes we've tried to date have been delicious!

    Even though I have no clue how to make any of these, mooning over the pages was really fun because there are some really amazing recipes in here if you have the patience and the skill.

    I'm a geek with a sweet tooth, so this one definitely scored with me. I've never seen her show, but I'm not much of a YouTuber, nor much of one for cooking shows. As much as I like cooking and new recipes, I tend to like cookbooks more. Seeing this book, though, I might be willing to give her a try.

Seeing this book, though, I might be willing to give her a try. Admittedly, this is one of those cookbooks where you look at the gorgeous photos and drool over the finished projects, and then step back and honestly ask "would I *reeeeeeeally* spend all that time decorating a cookie?" Most likely, no. For me at least. Several of these recipes fell solidly into the "Ain't nobody got time fo' that!" end of the spectrum. Doesn't mean they're any less pretty to look at though! But that is why it's 4 stars from me instead of 5. Knowing that I am one of those bakers who'd prefer to get to the end product, there are several recipes here that actually aren't super detailed and time-intensive, but still pack a nice geeky punch. You know, ones that lazy ol' me would actually make for a party. (Yes, for myself, I'll stick with cookie dough - because really, who wants to wait that extra 10 minutes when the dough is honestly the best part?) From a practical point of view, this is a good cookbook. There are templates and sources provided, plus plenty of pictures on the decorating how-tos. The recipes themselves aren't that hard; it's all about the decorating. If you're geeky and into sweets, it's at least worth a look. If you're the type who enjoys the decorating part of the baking process (not just the end consumption!), then this is definitely not one to miss.

    This book was visually interesting enough to be fun to look through whether you intend to do any of the baking projects or not. I haven't tried out any of the recipes, but while there are a few basic cake recipes and such in the beginning, the main point is taking whatever recipe you want and decorating it to look amazing, and the looks definitely succeed. There's a nice range of difficulties too.

I can't see myself making an entire castle out of cake and rice crispie treats any time soon, but I can totally see throwing some gummy candies in petri dishes full of jello for the right occasion. It was also cool that the nerdiness felt genuine, and the book included some thoughtful touches nerd would appreciate, like QR codes.

    I got this as a birthday present and I love it. some recepies are a lot easier to make and decorate but it's a really nice cook book. I discovered for myself how much of a pain making marshmallow fondant actually is xD me and my boyfriend made the Brain Cake from this. it took us a few times working out the best way to use the fondant to get the shapes we needed but I do feel that there was far more fondant than necessary. there was also far more cake batter than necessary as well, since I also I got this as a birthday present and I love it. some recepies are a lot easier to make and decorate but it's a really nice cook book.

    For sure, this book is more about the decoration than the recipes - but what great decorations they are! I think the Halloween witch's kettle cake pops are my favorite, although the smoking volcano cake is very clever. And of course, lots of possible cookie looks and shape templates, including the classic d20! I had one nitpick: the way the cookie cutouts are shown, made right in the center of the dough with lots of space left between them, is good for pictures but very wasteful.

Cookie dough gets tougher if you gather up the scraps and reroll them, so it's better to start cutting at the edge and put the cuts close together to get more and better shaped cookies from a single rolling.

    I was not already familiar with the Nerdy Nummies YouTube series when I was gifted this book by a good friend who knew I was trying to get into baking. To echo other reviewers, I love the ideas within but have rarely found myself with the opportunity or enough time and patience to tackle them! The basic recipes are great and give you a lot to build off of. But in general I feel like this book will only come off the shelf for themed parties.

    I think that Rosanna’s recipes are very fun and creative. Her treats and desserts have different themes like maths, science, astronomy, unicorn, games, technology and nerdy nummies. Her recipes are also very detailed with tips that are very useful. In addition, she mentioned some basics of baking like how to use a piping bag, make your own royal icing and fondant. It is very useful for me as I don’t really like the flavour of the fondant bought in supermarkets.

    Cute baking book. Some are a bit gross like the red blood cell cupcakes! But the geode cupcakes , moon cake are cute. Clear instructions , pretty pictures and a charming hostess / writer though I don’t believe that any of the hobbies / interests in this book make a person a “ nerd” In fact I don’t think that stereotype fits anyone in this century any longer.
