Sweet Discovery: Cake Magic by Kate Shirazi

Cake Magic

Recently, I was sent a review copy of a book called Cake Magic by Kate Shirazi. And after careful review, I have decided that even if it hadn't been sent to me for free, I'd probably buy this book. And I would recommend it to friends, too.

Now, I don't want to be bossy about it. But I know that you're not going to really read the reasons (the creative projects, the fun lore and stories in the headnotes, the user-friendly format), so I'm just going to go right to showing you five things that intrigued me right away in the book.

First off: English Madeleines? What? I've never heard of such of a thing. But gosh, now I want to get to know them better.

Second: Little tarts featured with a photo of little dollhouse people. I don't even care what flavor they are, I want one! Cute.

Third: Teacakes that look like some sort of tricked-out Mallomar. I vote yes on this. 

Cake Magic

Fourth: The snuggle loaf. I have had the urge to snuggle with carbohydrates before, and I consider this permission to act on this urge.

Cake Magic

Fifth: The Fancy Pants cheesecake. Eat it with your pinkies out, yo!

I'm in love with the Fancy Pants Cheesecake and would welcome the chance to replicate at home and showcase it on my blog. Do you think you could send me a list of the ingredients? I don't need directions just the ingredients. I don't want to bother you so if you can't I understand. And yes, I do give credit, so If I were to replicate the recipe I would give credit to the book's writer. Thank you very much, Jackie Hale

Ok..nevermind...I really don't want to bother you...SOOOOO...I've decided to make up my own version of fancy pants cheesecake and call it Squilliam Fancyson Cheesecake after my favorite Spongebob character. Yes, I'm adult but I have young children so I'm in the know..LOL..

Thanks anyway and btw...great blog.

Jackie: I am away from home for a few days but they probably have the book at a bookstore near you?
