Taking the Cake: Your Ultimate Cake Guide
Written primarily for the ethnic bride, whether of African-American, Hispanic, Caribbean, Asian or Native American descent, but also perfect for any other bride desiring a culturally inspired creation, the humorous, informative style will help guide her thru the arduous task of bringing the wedding cake of her dreams from concept to reality. She will get time proven tips on how to choose a baker, get a contract, prepare a cake budget, and ultimately design that dream. Not a bride, just love to bake? Chocked full anecdotes, and the recipes that led to my success, from being NY Magazines Editors Pick 5 years running, NY Daily News Critics Choice for desserts in New York, Nickelodeon's Parent's Pick, and a Food Network Challenger on Sweet Genius and Rewrapped, just to name a few, this book is also a must have for each of you, from the casual to the serious baker. From Northern standards to Southern delights, I've even included delectable diabetic and vegetarian cake recipes. The first book of its kind, ranked No. 1 on Amazon.com, and other major internet book sellers, there's something here for everyone.
