Although I've been a food stylist and recipe developer for over 28 years and worked on hundreds of cookbooks, this is my first cookbook to author! Magic Cakes, published by Running Press, is a dessert cookbook with 40 magic cakes and toppings that I developed, tested and was fortunate enough to also style the food in all the photos.
What is a magic cake? They are an internet craze right now found all over social media sites. One simple batter, one, pan, one cake, but 3 layers! In this cookbook, you'll see some traditional flavors but I will surprise you with some mouth-watering, flavor combinations you haven't seen anywhere. I give you step by step instructions on how to "make the magic happen" and teach you how to create your own flavors. After you understand the science behind the magic the possibilities are unlimited!
This book contains 40 recipes for cakes, frostings, icings, and other delightful extras that are simple to make and difficult not to devour. Magic cakes can be your classic chocolate or vanilla, a tiramisu cake reimagined, or even an unconventional cardamom-scented sweet potato cake if you're feeling adventurous. Top each treat with a frosting or a simple dusting of powdered sugar, and you've got yourself a magical dessert to savor and enjoy.
