Martha Stewart's Cakes: Our First-Ever Book of Bundts, Loaves, Layers, Coffee Cakes, and more by Martha Stewart Living Magazine Editors

A one-stop resource for cakes—birthday, chocolate, coffee, Bundt, upside-down, loaf, and more. From pound cake and angel food (with many variations) to genoise and streusel-topped, from comfort classics like red velvet, six-layer coconut, rich chocolate, lemon meringue, and cheesecake to sophisticated grown-up fare including chiffon cakes and tortes with luscious fruits, these 150 recipes and color photographs cover techniques, decorating, and gifting ideas for every taste and occasion, whether no-fuss or fancy.

Baking trends come and go, but cakes are timeless. From the editors and photographers of Martha Stewart Living, Cakes includes classics (German Chocolate, New York-Style Cheesecake), crowd-pleasers (Baked Alaska, Hummingbird), and cakes with unique, sophisticated flavors and embellishments (Pecan Torte with Lemon Curd, Saffron-Scented Pear Upside-Down Cake). Whether you need a birthday cake (for any age!), have bake-sale duty, want a travel-friendly coffee cake, or seek to impress at a dinner party or with a handmade gift, Martha Stewart's Cakes has more than 150 cakes plus ideas for decorating, gifting, and storing. Beautiful color photography that shows you just what you're aiming for and dozens of make-ahead tips make baking low-stress.

This book is what we have grown to expect from Martha Stewart and her team. There is a great variety and lots of pictures. Just last night I made the mini almond coffee cakes on page 99....delicious and the recipe made just 6 individual cakes...perfect for a family of two. The recipes use many pantry items so you are not going crazy looking for an ingredient you will seldom use. The only reason I am not giving 5 stars is that the book is a paperback and I much prefer a hardback book. For contents it deserves 5 stars.

What can I is Martha Stewart! While there are some cakes in here that I would never cook, other people would. I have already made a few and they taste out of this world! It has very good pictures and straight-forward instruction. Good book!

I checked out this cookbook from the library. I have made the mini rum bundt cakes which were delightful. There are many more recipes I would like to try, so I will be purchasing this book.

Love this book!  Mother's Day weekend, I treated myself to two cookbooks (both non-Martha Stewart books).  What was I thinking?  The moment I began flipping through pages in hope of finding the "right recipe", I could feel sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach.  To rectify my disappointment, I ordered two Martha Stewart cookbooks: cakes and cookies -neither disappoint.  Lesson learned.  Thanks Martha!

Got this book as a gift and have tried 3 cakes so far - one pound cake and two Bundt cakes. All were heavy dry and not very tasty in spite of using good name brand ingredients. Even tried an extra egg in the last one. About two thirds of each cake wound up in the garbage. What a waste! I asked for this book and will try a few more recipes. But I hope for better results. My advice? Get if from the library first.
