"Doyenne of Desserts, Queen of Cookies, Sultana of Sweets--the truth is, people love to bake Maida Heatter recipes, in part because they work, producing luscious creations that almost invariably bring grown men and women to their knees."--Suzanne Hamlin, The New York Times

Cakes mean celebration, and there's no better reason to celebrate than the first-ever cake book from Maida Heatter. With more than 175 recipes and 10 different categories (did you know there were so many kinds of cake?), it includes absolute classics like the East 62nd Street Lemon Cake plus everything from Jalousies and Zuger Kirschtorte to Pecan Sweet Potato Cake and more. She even makes fruitcake taste great. There are muffins, shortbreads, cheesecakes, gingerbreads, cupcakes, fancy cakes, nut cakes, and just plain cakey cakes. And most exciting of all, there's a completely new and never-before-published recipe for her Queen Mother's Cake, perhaps the most famous cake ever.

About the author (1997)

Maida Heatter is a cookbook author who began her career as a fashion illustrator and jewelry designer before she opened a cafe, the Inside, in Miami Beach in the 1960s. She drew the attention of Times food editor Craig Claiborne, who wrote in 1968: "She is hands down the foremost food authority in Florida." The Times began featuring her recipes. In 1974, she published Maida Heatter's Book of Great Desserts, the first of many titles that included Happiness Is Baking: Favorite Desserts From the Queen of Cake, published two months ago. Among her other books are Maida Heatter's Book of Great Chocolate Desserts (1980) and Maida Heatter's Cookies (1997). She won three James Beard Awards and was inducted to the foundation's Cookbook Hall of Fame in 1980 and again in 1998. Maida Heatter passed away on June 6, 2019 at the age of 102.
