Overview

The first paperback edition of a classic cake collection from Maida Heatter, James Beard Lifetime Hall of Fame member, called "the Queen of Cake" by Saveur magazine.

Cakes are experiencing a renaissance, and the revival wouldn't be complete without Maida Heatter's Cakes, available for the first time in paperback. First published in 1997, Maida Heatter's Cakes is a "best of" compilation of 175 of Maida's classic, most beloved cake recipes originally published in her nine baking books. From an ever-so-lighter take on her legendary Queen Mother's Cake, Maida's self-proclaimed favorite, to cakes, sticky buns, homemade doughnuts, cheesecakes, muffins, ice creams, and sauces, Maida Heatter's Cakes offers foolproof recipes for novice and experienced bakers alike presented alongside charming two-color, line-drawn illustrated interiors.

Originally published in 1982, this classic is back in print. With her customary warmth and years of culinary wisdom, Heatter guides new bakers through the ins and outs of creating plain cakes, fancy cakes, cheesecakes, and more. (LJ 7/11)
