Little Cakes is here to liberate us from the too-big, too-boring tyranny of boxed cake mixes and the traditional layer-cake 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 then 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 modest-sized cake recipes than any other cookbook. Rediscover the simple pleasures of baking and enrich any occasion with just the right amount of sweetness.
