Publisher Comments:

Canongate UK's beautiful first cookbook, a baking book with pink-tipped pages by a rock'n'roll baker, combines the techniques to become a skilled baker with innovative and mouthwatering recipes

Since she started out selling her cakes at a market in East London, Lily Jones (aka Vanilli) has gone on to become one of Britain's best-loved artisan bakers. With a star-studded client list and a thriving

bakery, Lily's baked goods are famous for their unique flavor combinations, spectacular design, and exquisite taste. This book takes readers behind the scenes of her bakery and explains how to master some of the core skills of baking—the cake, the custard, the coulis, the pastry, the ganache, and much more—arming readers with the skills necessary to develop one's own recipes and move beyond the cupcake once and for all. Packed with more than 100 inspirational and easy-to-follow recipes including Ultimate Pillow-Soft Vanilla Sponge Cake, Bitter Chocolate Orange Cake, Rhubart Tarts with Chilli and Ginger, Brown Sugar Brioche, Whisky Salt Caramel Popcorn, Very Boozy Sherry Trifle, and Absinthe and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, it also contains invaluable tips and decorating techniques. This book is essential reading for anyone who is passionate about making sweets, from the complete beginner to the expert baker. Includes metric measures.
