Shipping calculated at checkout
Whether single-serving size or meant to treat just a few people, small cakes can be a special indulgence. In this attractive collection of recipes, baker Tracey Zabar offers something for nearly every occasion.
Her seasonally arranged recipes are each accompanied by a photograph, some displaying a simple, unadorned little cake while others are showier, something that’s often achieved by a single grand flourish rather than hours of painstaking decorating.
Zabar’s pear cake combines recipes from Sicily and Austria, the countries from which her grandparents immigrated. Her one-layer carrot cake offers more cake than icing. And the gumdrop cake is playfully minimalist, sure to please a child at heart.
So go ahead and indulge yourself. It’s only a little cake.
