Forget American-style cupcakes, and start thinking good old-fashioned fairy cakes: this cookbook is dedicated to British-style baking, and the Fluffy Vanilla Fairy Cakes with Chocolate Fudge Icing are truly reminiscent of English childhood. Other recipes include indulgent teatime treats like Victoria Sponge and Treacle Tart, forgotten classics like Chelsea Buns and Banana Nut Bread, and retro throwbacks like Jammy Dodgers and Swiss Rolls. The more than 120 recipes include showstoppers like Raspberry Ripple Cheesecake and fabulously foolproof Gingerbread Men. Every recipe is simple to cook yet mouthwateringly delicious, and this stylish book, with its pretty pastel color palette and pink placeholder ribbon, is signature Peyton & Byrne--stylish, fun, approachable, and inspiring. Recipes include metric measurements.
Peyton and Byrne are London’s preeminent bakers. Since opening their first shop at Heals, they have been synonymous with exquisite cakes, gorgeously packaged.
