Overview

In this book you will find over 100 ideas for beautiful cakes, all of them easy to make at home, without the need for fancy kitchen appliances or special cake-making skills. This collection offers you your pick of fuss-free recipes for the perfect cake, whatever the occasion.

The choice includes gloriously girly cakes-as-fashion-statements, comforting favorites, and classics that include tempting little mini-cakes and cupcakes, the most wickedly indulgent chocolate cakes, and sublimely creamy cheesecakes. There are inspiring cake ideas for festive occasions, from traditional and modern cakes for Christmas and Easter to pretty Valentine's Day cakes, and yummy creations for children's birthday parties. There's also a stunning selection of dream cakes, as fabulous to look at as they are to eat, as well as meringues, patisserie, old-fashioned standbys, and teatime treats. There are even suggestions for those of us who, perhaps because of food intolerances, normally say no to a slice of cake.

Behind all the recipes is a recognition that baking a cake is something special. For most of us it was our first experience of cooking, and it remains a satisfying one, conjuring up the innocent pleasures of childhood. It's a lovely, giving thing to do, and this book is as much about the rewards of making cakes as of eating them. The only decision you have now is to choose which one to try first...

Annie Bell began her career as a chef before becoming a full-time cookery writer and author. Her books include Annie Bell's Vegetable Book and Evergreen, which was short listed for the André Simon and Glenfiddich food writing awards. More recently she has published In My Kitchen and Living and Eating, a lifestyle cookery book written with the architect John Pawson.

She spent several years as cookery writer for British Vogue, then as food writer on The Independent newspaper. She is currently principal cookery writer on The Mail on Sunday's YOU magazine in London, and is a contributor to Country Living. She was winner of the British Guild of Food Writers' Journalist of the Year in 2003.

    An addictive cake book

    For the cheap price and unbelievable photos I had to get this and it was more than worth it. The recipes seems to work really well, producing moist cakes. I have had to cut some of the sugar in some recipes (the meringues for instance) and increase the extracts or zest in others, but I really can't complain since that happens with a lot of recipes. I loved the idea of using sparklers in place of candles for a birhtday cake.
