"If you ever bake a cake, this book will become your partner in the kitchen."-- from the foreword by Maida Heatter
This is the classic cake cookbook that enables anyone to make delicious, exquisite cakes. As a writer for food magazines, women's magazines, and newspapers, including The New York Times, Rose Levy Beranbaum's trademark is her ability to reduce the most complex techniques to easy-to-follow recipes. Rose makes baking a joy. This is the definitive work on cakes by the country's top cake baker.
The Cake Bible shows how to:
Mix a buttery, tender layer cake in under five minutes with perfect results every time
Make the most fabulous chocolate cake you ever imagined with just three ingredients
Find recipes for every major type of cake, from pancakes to four-tiered wedding cakes
Make cakes with less sugar but maximum flavor and texture
Make many low- to no- cholesterol, low-saturated-fat recipes
This is not the book for the busy person who intends to bake a cake once a year, but instead the person who wants to use their KitchenAid mixer (or who needs a great excuse to buy one) and loves to bake cakes that are better than any you can purchase anywhere, and who doesn't mind taking an extra 1/2 hour to accomplish that.
