Book Description

25 Mar 2008 The Small Book of Good Taste

Roger Pizey’s small cakes have led the way in a huge home baking revival. From iced fairy cakes to fondant fancies, lemon drizzle cake to lime, lemon and pistachio slices, his classic bakes provide comfort moments during a busy day, make great accompaniments to afternoon tea and are a perfect excuse for sharing precious time with friends.

Small Cakes re-acquaints the reader with traditional favourites such as cheese cakes, sponge cakes, baked fruit loafs, chunky brownies and Eccles cakes. Perfectly formed miniatures become delicate indulgences rather than guilty pleasures in the creative hands of this leading pastry chef.

With chapters on fairy cakes, teatime treats, small comfort cakes and homemade classics, Roger offers ideas on how to bake a cake for any occasion. His unique approach to traditional baking is fun, inventive and, above all, delicious.

I don't regard these as recipes for 'small' cakes. The recipes are nothing special that you couldn't find in other recipe books.
