This cookbook is not a compilation of elegant, time consuming cakes of the world. Rather, it is an expression of what real cakes are all about. These are the cakes that your grandmother used to make and do not require any previous baking expertise.
Superb photographs will have you dreaming of cakes with the flavours of the world. Imagine serving a Sicilian Apple Cake or a Turkish Honey Cake for afternoon tea. How about ending your Indian meal with a slice of Indian Yoghurt Cake or stunning Orange Cardamon Cakes. The Chinese Ginger Syrup Cake will become a star at any Asian meal or curl up in front of the fire with a slice of decadent Mexican Chocolate Cake.
A selection of savoury cakes is also included to make your next buffet or picnic a sure fire sucess. Thumb through the superb recipes within and treat the children, treat your friends, treat yourself - Bake your cake and eat it too!
