Rose's Heavenly Cakes
This extraordinary collection of heavenly cake recipes from "Diva of Desserts" Rose Levy Beranbaum, the award-winning author of The Cake Bible, is an essential kitchen companion for anyone who loves to bake. Illustrated throughout with stunning full-color photography, the book's meticulously tested, easy-to-follow recipes are all you need to create spectacularly beautiful cakes in your home kitchen.
In her signature crystal-clear style, Rose takes you step-by-step through the instructions for making every type of cake imaginable—more than 100 expertly tested (and re-tested) recipes in all—while full-color photographs of every finished cake and step-by-step processes offer inspiration and clear instruction. Exceptionally delicious butter and oil cakes, sponge cakes, flourless cakes, and cheesecakes, such as Heavenly Coconut Seduction Cake, Golden Lemon Almond Cake, and Devil's Food Cake with Midnight Ganache, are perfect for birthday celebrations, coffee breaks, or everyday weeknight desserts. And Rose also includes a range of charming baby cakes such as Mud Turtle Cupcakes and divine creations like the Deep Chocolate Passion Wedding Cake that will make any special occasion more festive.
With each and every recipe step thoroughly explained in Rose¿s usual approachable style, baking with Rose's Heavenly Cakes is like having a master baker right alongside you in the kitchen. In her "Ten Golden Rules of Cake Baking," Rose provides advice on the right kind of flour to select to give your cake the perfect structure, how to fill a cake pan so that your cakes bake evenly every time, the best way to unmold a cake for a perfect finished appearance, the ideal ways to store every type of cake, and much more. The baking tips and trade secrets that she shares throughout the book will show you how to transform a simple cake batter into delicious art, with perfect results every time.
From Barcelona Brownie Bars for a simple weeknight treat to White Gold Passion Genoise for a gala event, Rose's Heavenly Cakes is the cookbook that translates the chemistry of baking into the incredible, extraordinary, and unequaled joy of cake baking.
Presents a comprehensive guide to making cakes of all kinds, with recipes for different types of cakes including butter, oil, sponge, flourless, and wedding cakes, with discussions on technique, ingredients, and equipment.
"In this stunning volume, we are treated to a firsthand experience of cakes the author has refined since her landmark book, The Cake Bible, was published in 1988. Rose's Heavenly Cakes is not merely a successor to it, it is a bright new guide to the glories of cake baking."
From the foreword by Lisa Yockelson, award-winning author of Baking by Flavor and ChocolateChocolate
