Cakes and Cupcakes!

by Mich Turner

In Everyday Bakes to Showstopper Cakes, celebrity baker Mich Turner brings together a collection of recipes to take you all the way from the delicious everyday through to the spectacular. Starting out with simple cakes, biscuits and cupcakes, once you have mastered this first level, Mich provides you with a few extra steps to turn these into fabulous creations. If you’re looking for more of a challenge or to elevate a favourite, these bakes are easily adapted to create a true showstopper cake. Covering a full range of bakery goods as well as perfect flavours, whether you are a novice baker or already know your rum baba from your roulade, you can be easily guided through these delicious bakes and simple but spectacular decoration techniques that make the most of wonderful flavours and perfect crumb.

When I first saw the cover of this book, I knew I had to check it out. I enjoy baking, and love how creative cakes and cupcakes can be. However, I wasn’t prepared for the absolute beauty in this book. Page after page of delightful treats, all with color photos! I could spend a day lost in its pages.

EVERYDAY BAKES TO SHOWSTOPPER CAKES lives up to its name. I don’t think I have ever seen so many beautiful and yummy sounding sweets within one volume. You’ll find recipes for Marble Ring Cake with Double Chocolate Drip, Lemon Meringue Cupcakes, Strawberry and Orange Cupcakes, Warming Ginger Loaf Cake, Salted Caramel Popcorn Layer Cake, Lemon and Elderflower Layer Cake, Red Velvet Cake with White Chocolate Fudge Heart Cake with Sugar Roses, Mothering Sunday Mango and Passion Fruit Cake, and so many more, you’ll get cavities just reading it!

Rather you love baking, decorating, eating delicious treats, or you simply enjoy looking through and or collecting beautiful books, EVERYDAY BAKES TO SHOWSTOPPER CAKES is one you’ll want to add to your collection.
