Product Description

Product Description

A one-stop resource for cakes--birthday, chocolate, coffee, Bundt, upside-down, loaf, and more. From pound cake and angel food (with many variations) to genoise and streusel-topped, from comfort classics like red velvet, six-layer coconut, rich chocolate, lemon meringue, and cheesecake to sophisticated grown-up fare including chiffon cakes and tortes with luscious fruits, these 150 recipes and color photographs cover techniques, decorating, and gifting ideas for every taste and occasion, whether no-fuss or fancy.

Baking trends come and go, but cakes are timeless. From the editors and photographers of Martha Stewart Living, Cakes includes classics (German Chocolate, New York-Style Cheesecake), crowd-pleasers (Baked Alaska, Hummingbird), and cakes with unique, sophisticated flavors and embellishments (Pecan Torte with Lemon Curd, Saffron-Scented Pear Upside-Down Cake). Whether you need a birthday cake (for any age!), have bake-sale duty, want a travel-friendly coffee cake, or seek to impress at a dinner party or with a handmade gift, Martha Stewart's Cakes has more than 150 cakes plus ideas for decorating, gifting, and storing. Beautiful color photography that shows you just what you're aiming for and dozens of make-ahead tips make baking low-stress.

5.0 out of 5 stars Devoted To Cakes 26 Sep 2013
Martha Stewart has the most amazing repertoire of recipes, and beside her Pate Brisse I use for pies, her cakes are what I covet. This book and e-book is the definitive book f cakes. I opted to purchase the book format for my daughter, and the ebook for me. I collect cookbooks, but am becoming overwhelmed the amount of cookbooks I own.

Warning: Do Not Read This Book If Hungry

Chocolate cake is my favorite and right dab on the cover is a chocolate cake that will make you salivate. Inside are 246 pages of pictures and recipes, all about cakes. 150 different cakes ! Martha Stewart starts the book with her Introduction about cakes. She then hoes on to give you the Ten Golden Rules For Cakes. If you follow these riles, you should end up with the most delicious tasting and looking cakes.

The cake recipes are broken up into chapters, Loaves, Bundts and Tubes, Coffee Cakes, Single Layers, Cheesecakes, Icebox, Cakes With Fruits, and Layer Cakes (my favorite). She then goes in to discuss ingredients, glazes, frostings, garnishes and finally tips and techniques. This is the most comprehensive of cake cookbooks. The unusual cakes, Chocolate Chip Cookie Icebox Cake and Gingerbread Icebox Cake, who would have thought? They all look delicious.
My favorites are Lemon Pound Cake and Devil's Food Cake with Seven Minute Frosting.

Cakes in my house are indicative of special times. Layer cakes usually take a bit of work, and we have them for birthdays. But, pound cakes and single layer cakes can be made for coffee or tea, or for an anytime dessert. In these busy days, it is easier to stop at a local bakery, but a homemade cake, made by that special person means so much more. I want to make every cake in this cookbook, but alas, that is not practical. However, I can see one in my near future.

Highly Recommended. prisrob 09-26-13

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 26 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Good book. Having purchased many baking and cake books over the years, and particularly American books, this is quite interesting and a nice addition to my collcetion. If you were to only buy one american baking/cake book I wouldn't make it this book I would suggest buting BAKING by Dorie Greenspan.
