Product description

Review

-Brooklyn-based pastry chef Emily Lael Aumiller sits squarely in the overlap of show-stopping cakes and special-needs diets. Her creations are vegan and gluten free, yet look like they belong in a magazine -- as indeed they have (see Martha Stewart Weddings and Brides). Her new book, -Pure Artistry: Extraordinary Vegan & Gluten-Free Cakes- (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $35), provides a master class in special-diet cakes and cake-decorating. With beautiful (and hardworking) photographs by Lauren Volo.- --Newsday

-Aumiller's goal of creating -edible art- (that just happens to be vegan and gluten-free) is apparent in this graceful collection divided into two sections: Recipes & Techniques and Aspects of Cake Design. The author's years of baking without the likes of eggs and milk led her to years of experimenting in search of successful -stable- cakes, and readers will benefit from her research into alternative ingredients such as gluten-free flours, unrefined sugars, and plant-based fats. Detailed information on tools and decorating leads to cake recipes centered on Mexican chocolate, coconut, and ginger. The highlights of the book are the often intricate and always lovely cake decorations; how-to sections give step-by-step photos for painting and stenciling adornments, sculpting feathers, and creating and applying a chevron pattern. Photography by Volvo captures the artful creations in full-page spreads: -Gold in Chaos- is a three-layer cake that appears to defy gravity, and -Pleated Angels,- a wedding dress-inspired cake, boasts pristine -folds.- This title is both inspirational and enjoyable to browse.- --Publishers Weekly

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book to get inspired and baking. 1 Oct. 2016
By Mony Ty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic. As a chef, I appreciate the concise instructions and how-to photography. The step by step instructions are fairly straight forward to follow with a little practice.
Secondly, as a culinary artist.. I have to say the style, imagination, and beauty of the cakes are amazing. It's takes a true talent to create these works of art.
But regardless of how much skill you have, it's a beautiful book to have for the inspirational and imaginative artistry that goes these cakes.
Learning one step at a time.... this book is helping me get there. I totally recommend having this in your cooking reference library.

5.0 out of 5 stars we were delighted with how the cake turned out and are grateful ... 1 Oct. 2016
By Marisa Miller Wolfson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
As the mom of two young vegan kids, I was in desperate need for cake decorating ideas and recipes for birthday parties. This is SUCH a gorgeous book, and it gave me and my co-collaborator the confidence to attempt my most ambitious cake venture yet: a kitty cat cake for my daughter's birthday. The coconut cake itself was yummy, but I botched the fondant and sugar paste by buying/using the wrong kind of palm oil (it was marketed as "sustainable" but was red and stinky!) The fondant wasn't usable so my co-collaborator ended up whipping up a quick buttercream frosting instead, but the sugar paste was still usable and we fashioned a cute kitty out of it, which was inspired by a Pinterest post I came across.

All in all, we were delighted with how the cake turned out and are grateful for the inspiration/guidance. The book contained tips and decorating tricks I never would have thought of.

My request to the author for her NEXT book is to include fondant and sugar paste recipes that don't use palm oil since a lot of people in my vegan/animal rights community (myself included) try to avoid/minimize consumption of it. I would also love to see some kids cakes photos! I know she would do an incredible job with cakes for children.

I feel like Emily Lael Aumiller is right in my kitchen with me baking cakes and desserts!! I look forward to taking some of her classes in the next year!! Also I have shared her "Pure Artistry" for weddings, showers, and birthday gifts.
5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for food allergies 6 April 2017
By Kurt H Dahl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent book for kids with food allergies. We first got from library but checked it out so many times we had to buy it. Photography is beautiful. About a third of it is complicated cake decorating that we will never do but the recipes are so yummy, easy to make. It's not easy to find really good baking recipes for a child with allergies to egg, wheat, dairy and nuts. These are fun, different and very tasty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great cake book! 8 Oct. 2016
By Salvador Ceja - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great book that is very instructional on all parts of cake making, from good recipes for cakes to decorating. Even if you did not bake a gluten-free vegan cake you can still use the information on cake decorating to turn out beautiful cakes.
