Deciding that I needed to bake a little cake the other day, I pulled down my cook books to peruse photographs and recipes. I gravitate towards being a baker, not a cooker, and I am fine with that, but I was foiled by the lack of cake recipes in all of my tomes. Good ol' Betty Crocker had the most cake recipes, and although the BC recipes usually don't fail and are quite hilariously printed next to something absolutely 70's (marshmallow salad), they still don't have what modern cookbooks include- gloriously lit photo-spreads of the food itself.
Do you have a recipe book you would recommend to someone who is in search of a mostly cake, plus some cookie/ random sweets recipes- collection?
I have already started browsing online... I like the look of these:
|The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook|
|The Complete Magnolia Bakery Cookbook|
|More from Magnolia|
|Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook|
