Conquer your fear of flour with a cookbook that "takes the intimidation factor out of baking with easy-to-follow recipes" (Publishers Weekly). Warren Brown, the founder of CakeLove bakeries, wants you to bake your cake and eat it too—and even better, enjoy the moment in which you present your made-from-scratch masterpiece to bedazzled, hungry-eyed family and friends. For Brown, love and baking are inseparable. After all, he abandoned an unrewarding career in law to do the work he finds truly emotionally satisfying. Every page of CakeLove communicates that satisfaction, as well as Brown's can-do approach to the art of baking. As he points out, baking cakes isn't a cakewalk, but it's not rocket science, either—and getting it right isn't nearly as hard as you think. With an "entertaining" style (Publisher Weekly), gentle guidance, and clear information on ingredients, equipment, and techniques, CakeLove teaches you how to make pound cakes, butter cakes, sponge cakes, cupcakes, glazes, frostings, fillings, meringues, and more!
