I really think I have to buy this book...I saw it on a blog called This That And The Other Thing.
Doesn't the cake plate look peely at the edges? I need to head back to the Milk House to look for one.
It's described this way on Amazon...
"A charming collection of updated recipes for both classic and forgotten cakes, from a timeless yellow birthday cake with chocolate buttercream frosting, to the Christmas standard, Bûche de Noël, written by a master baker and coauthor of Rustic Fruit Desserts".
It's the cover that sings to me...I just want one teeny slice...and you can have the rest of it.
I just want to toss on a frilly apron and make a pink cake!
