We all deserve a little cake now and then. But with today's cramped kitchens and even more cramped schedules, making a big threelayer cake can be a monumental undertaking. And unless you're baking for an army, you risk having much of it go to waste. How about a small cake with big flavor?
Little Cakes is here to liberate us from the toobig, tooboring tyranny of boxed cake mixes and the traditional layercake recipes. Betty Crocker has fooled us into thinking that "yellow" and "white" are the only flavors available. We've forgotten about the imaginative range of cakes that our grandmothers made. Little Cakes brings back the creativity of those lost classics but updates them for today's smaller households.
Illustrated with original watercolors, Little Cakes makes a charming gift. But it's also an essential addition to any baker's bookshelf, with more modestsized cake recipes than any other cookbook. Rediscover the simple pleasures of baking and enrich any occasion with just the right amount of sweetness.
