Book Description

5 Jun 2014 Jamie Olivers Food Tube

Jamie Oliver's Food Tube presents The Cake Book, a collection of 50 deliciously inventive and exciting cake and cupcake recipes from Food Tube's own Cupcake Jemma.

'Split up seasonally, you'll have a wonderfully naughty treat to choose from, whatever the time of year - this book might be small in size, but it's crammed full of brilliant recipes' - Jamie Oliver

As owner of Crumbs & Doilies, one of London's most creative cake and cupcake bakeries, Jemma shows you the easiest everyday classics alongside four chapters of super-cool seasonal cake recipes. With step-by-step instructions alongside handy hints and tips The Cake Book is a beautifully presented collection of recipes you'll want to bake time and again, including epic layer cakes such as Raspberry Ripple, Super Lemon Meringue and Ridiculous Chocolate as well as amazing cupcakes like Blueberry Cheesecake, Buttered Popcorn, Cookies & Cream, Eton Mess and more.

Jemma Wilson began baking professionally at the esteemed Rose Bakery before starting her own business in 2006. Crumbs & Doilies has since become one of the most respected and exciting makers of cakes and cupcakes in London, with an emphasis on top quality ingredients, imaginative flavours, beautiful presentation and attention to detail that Jemma carries through to all her recipes.

Product Description

About the Author

When Jemma left art school she never thought she'd find her creative outlet in the form of baking but in 2006 she set up Crumbs & Doilies as a market stall and realised that her artistic urges were being fulfilled in ways she had never anticipated. Her cupcakes and cakes have been enjoyed by the likes of Paul McCartney, Keira Knightley, Lily Allen and even Gandalf himself, Sir Ian McKellen. Jemma and her team at Crumbs & Doilies past achievements include making 10,000 cupcakes to form a giant mosaic of a Japanese Cherry Blossom, as well as over 1,000 sushi shaped cakes complete with sushi tray, chopsticks and 'wasabi' buttercream!

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't order if trying to lose weight 5 Jun 2014
By Deborah TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book looks mouth-wateringly delicious, I'm supposed to be trying to lose weight so part of me wishes I'd never ordered this but if I'm being honest I can't wait to get started.
This, like the BBQ book has the recipe on one page with a full colour photo of the finished item on the opposite page, there's also a page of hints & tips.
I spotted this book while looking around for a BBQ book for my husband, I can't remember the last time I bought myself a cookery book I generally get them as presents so I have a really good selection but I really liked the look of this. As with the BBQ book I noticed a complete content list wasn't given so I've added one at the end for you.
I don't generally review cookery books since by the time I've tried enough of the recipes to give a fair review I forget, yes, every single time, I always have good intentions but somehow I never get round to it but I'm making an exception since I thought it would be helpful to give a list of the recipes included and I'll add to the review as I try them out.
One tip I picked up from a friend years ago and I've followed ever since is to make little notes at the side of the recipes, I was horrified the first time I looked through one of her baking books to notice notes scribbled at the side of the recipes I couldn't believe anyone would write in a book, but she explained that you have a cookery book for life and you can forget so she wrote a little review at the side of each one. Turned out to be an excellent idea and one I've followed ever since, it really helps me because I've got a memory like a sieve so thank you Karen.

This is packed full of both simple and extravagant cakes, some of these might not be for you, but a bunch of them will blow your mind! Some are a bit whacky and sound odd (earl grey & toast) but turn out to be show stoppers!

You really should get this if you want to move onto more interesting cakes and away from making the same old vanilla cupcakes!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is my go to book when I want to impress 8 Sep 2014
By Elena
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have only praise for the Cake Book. It is absolutely brilliant!
Love how she makes her way through more unconventional bakes and nails them every time. Great pictures and I really appreciate the way she talks us through the whole process so nothing can go wrong. Definitely fool proof recipes. So far I've baked the Cardamom and white chocolate cupcakes and the Mexican hot chocolate cupcakes. Superb! Way to go Jemma!

5.0 out of 5 stars Every flavour you can think of, 'cupcaked'! 11 Jun 2014
By beany
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is different from any cake recipe book I've had before....the ideas are so diverse, ranging from chai spiced to Mexican hot to lavender....the list is endless and I'm dying to try them all! Trouble is, as one of the other reviewers says, there's a dilemma if you're trying to lose weight! I'm ploughing ahead anyway.
