The Cake Book: Beautiful Sweet Treats for Every Craving

We rated this book:


Rebecca Firth’s The Cookie Book did so well that she decided to put together The Cake Book. This book has all her favorite cake recipes which will hopefully become yours as well. She starts off with some very helpful tips before you even get started such as what ingredients to have on hand and what kind of pans to use. There are recipes for cakes to use for celebrations, loaf and tea cakes, brunch cakes, single-layer cakes, holiday cakes, and twists on the classic Bundt. With so many options, there should be something in here that strikes your fancy and will impress friends and family.

I found Rebecca’s very detailed instructions to be incredibly helpful. I’m a low-skill level baker and even when I messed up the Chocolate Horchata Meringue Cake by completely forgetting the sour cream, it still tasted and looked amazing. That was my first ever attempt at meringue and it went perfectly just by following her easy-to-follow instructions. I also made the Muscovado Banana Bread which also came out lovely. While someone with more skill would probably benefit best from this book, it’s still a great addition as it helps you push yourself in the kitchen.
