Laura is one of the most talented chefs in the business and helped me get started when setting up my cake business. Her book is full of tasty, scrumptious and inventive recipes which I am sure will become firm family favourites. --Lorraine Pascale
Having worked for me several years ago at Le Caprice, it is good to see Laura has escaped from the restaurant scene and is quickly becoming the Dessert Deli queen. --Mark Hix
A fabulous mix of puddings, cakes and biscuits from the dessert queen herself. Laura's attention to detail makes each one a winner. You'll be in honeycomb heaven with desserts you'll want to dive into!! --Wendi Peters
