Overview

"Baking goes hand in hand with existing, it's something I do almost every day, something I do compulsively, that I both want and need to do, that I love. If I look at this collection of recipes, I feel a huge sense of pleasure at putting everything I've enjoyed baking up until now in writing.

"So with longevity at its heart, this is a collection of unapologetically classic recipes. I have tried to squeeze absolutely every single favorite cake, cookie, meringue and crepe into one volume, including the less fashionable ones that I still love and feel should be up there with the others. These are the cakes that I return to again and again, tweaking this and changing that, trying out my mum's version or a friend's mum's version, or making it in a different way. The aim of this book is that it should be lovely but real."

The Most Heavenly Angel Food Cake Ever
Arranging colorful M&M's on top of any cake is one of the fastest ways to instantly transform it into a celebration-worthy dessert. Place those candy-coated chocolates atop fluffy angel food cake that's layered with a mascarpone-cheese-raspberry-jam filling and covered in cream cheese frosting, and you've got one downright amazing birthday treat.
