The perfect blending of the culinary finesse of Martha Stewart and homespun warmth of Lady Bird Johnson, Bevelyn Blair is a day-in-day-out master chef in the South. She has been amassing cake recipes for almost fifty years, including countless heirloom recipes, some over 100 years old. Some years ago she compiled the best of her recipes into a self-published cake cookbook, and word-of-mouth quickly spread across the country and overseas and the media came calling. She has since sold over 70,000 copies of the book, one at a time, to her loyal fans. Now, for the first time in a trade edition, over 500 of her time-tested everyday recipes are available, including many new recipes not previously included. From old-fashioned layer cakes, coffee cakes, pound cakes, and refrigerator cakes to frostings, glazings, fillings, and icings, Bevelyn Blair's Everyday Cakes is the definitive cake cookbook for workday, weekend, or special occasions. From classics such Colonial English Trifle, Red Velvet Cake, Lady Baltimore Cake, and Scripture Cake to mouth-watering inventions such as Seven-Up Cake, Caramel Ginger Snap Cake, Orange Sour Cream Cake, and Sock It To Me Cake, Bevelyn's secrets are ones you will treasure and enjoy giving to others for generations to come.
