From the heart of Tribeca comes a sweet and charming cookbook that marries the joys of baking with the glamour of fashion, offering a cache of staple dessert recipes which, like the perfect little black dress, can be accessorized to fit any occasion.
What does a luscious devil's food cake have in common with a little black dress? They can both be easily transformed for any event just by changing accessories. It can be dressed down into a mud pie for a laid-back evening with friends, or glammed up into a Sweet-and-Salty birthday cake. Rachel Schifter Thebault helps you master basics like vanilla cookies and cheesecake and shows you how to dress them up, transforming a traditional birthday cake into whimsical strawberry cupcakes or graham crackers into S'mores sandwich cookies, making it a must-have for new bakers and seasoned foodies alike.
