The Cake Lover’s Recipe Notebook is a should-have for anyone who loves cake – and who doesn’t? The current passion for baking shows no signs of waning and this gorgeous-taking a look notebook is the ideal place to keep all of your favourite recipes, whether passed down through generations or from friend to friend, or copied down from a magazine. In addition, an experienced baker may taste a new concoction in a patisserie or cafe and be inspired to check out to re-create the combination of flavours at home. This is the place to record the results. The practical wiro-bound notebook is separated into eight sections, with convenient tabs for easy navigation. It begins with a truly useful section on basic ingredients and essential equipment and techniques, which describes in simple terms the difference between soft brown and Demerara sugar, beating and folding in, baking sheets and sandwich tins. Die-hard bakers will use this as a handy checklist, whilst those people who are better versed in eating cake than baking it is going to find the straightforward advice invaluable. There is also handy space so that you can make your own notes and shopping lists. Each of the following sections – Cake-Tin Cakes, On a regular basis Cakes, Little Cakes, Posh Cakes, Fancies & Frivolities and Celebration Cakes – offers two mouth-watering recipes to get you started. Then follows a series of prettily patterned blank pages so that you can write out your own recipes, notes, ideas and experiments.
