In this book you will find over 100 ideas for beautiful cakes, all of them easy to make at home without the need for fancy equipment or specialist skills. The choice includes cakes-as-fashion statements, comforting favourites and essential classics, including the most wickedly indulgent chocolate cakes and sublimely creamy cheesecakes. Gorgeous Cakes also offers mouth-watering recipes for those special occasions, from Easter to St Valentine's Day. The only decision now is choosing which one to make first.
