The first paperback edition of a classic cake collection from Maida Heatter, James Beard Lifetime Hall of Fame member, called ā€œthe Queen of Cakeā€ by Saveur magazine.

Cakes are experiencing a renaissance, and the revival wouldn't be complete without Maida Heatter's Cakes, available for the first time in paperback. First published in 1997, Maida Heatter's Cakes is a "best of" compilation of 175 of Maida's classic, most beloved cake recipes originally published in her nine baking books. From an ever-so-lighter take on her legendary Queen Mother's Cake, Maida's self-proclaimed favorite, to cakes, sticky buns, homemade doughnuts, cheesecakes, muffins, ice creams, and sauces, Maida Heatter's Cakes offers foolproof recipes for novice and experienced bakers alike presented alongside charming two-color, line-drawn illustrated interiors.
