Overview

Welcome to the wonderful world of Kiki Bee—a lady who knows her baking powder and her bourbon! Prohibition may be keeping those bootlegging boys busy, but there's still plenty of luscious liquor to go round! From the oh so ladylike Pimm's O'cake, to the kick up your heels Limbo Fruitcake, A Cocktail of Cakes will tantalize and tease. And as for the Tea Bread—well, let's just say it's more shot glass than fine bone china! Small Measures is full of treats that are small but perfectly formed, just like Kiki. If you've ever wanted to play with the green fairy, then her Absinthe cakes will leave you all a-flutter, and as for the Bramble Brownies—well, they're your favorite cocktail, with chocolate. You can send her a thank you card later. Tipsy Tarts will tempt the straightest of you from temperance—dive into a New York Sour Pear Tart or a Guilty Guinness Mince Pie—while The Proof is in the Pudding with Sidecar Crêpes and a Bellini Cobbler. So join Kiki, baking bon viveur and good-time girl, in her masterclass in the latest craze in boozy baking. Just keep it on the QT.
• 28 recipes for decadent cakes and desserts with a cheeky cocktail twist.
• With gorgeous photography by William Lingwood, it's a perfect gift book.

About the Author

Kiki Bee takes a uniquely sozzled slant on baking. After spending her flapper years bailing cheap dates out of Sing Sing, she realised that rather than being the broad with the bail dough, she should be the broad with the cake! She seeks out the very best liquors and sneaks them into the finest cakes. So if you know the secret knock, slide on over to Kiki's — she's sure to have just the treat you need.
