A pastry chef-turned-Instagram star, Zoe Francois has a gift for beautiful cakes, as well as for writing clear, detailed recipes to create them.
More than 80 recipes here range from sheet cakes and quick breads to dramatic layer cakes and fancy rolls. One week you might turn out a friendly blueberry muffin cake just to have around the house. Because breakfast. And lunch. And snacks. And the next you might celebrate a birthday with the showy hot chocolate cake pictured on the book’s cover. You might bring some slices of lemon-curd pound cake to the library bake sale. And then you might stretch all your skills for the blackberry diva cake, which reinvents the classic opera torte.
Francois includes plenty of detailed instruction for those times when you essay a more complex element or assembly. And she provides measurements by weight as well as volume, for all those bakers who understand the power of the scale.
