Layer cakes are happy-making, wonderfully frivolous and sprinkled with magic. These tantalizing delights are all about sharing cherished moments and celebrating with loved ones.
The charm lies in layering flavours. With over 20 recipes for fillings and cake bases, the book encourages you to savour the process over several days and inspires to explore a range of flavour combinations. Have fun sandwiching your favourite fillings between cookies, piping them into éclairs or spooning them as a companion to a scoop of ice cream.
The curated collection of layer cakes, exquisite macarons and simple instructions for quicker delights are suitable for casual enthusiasts and seasoned pros alike, enticing to explore a variety of ingredients and techniques. In essence, a layer cake is a blend of two complementing elements: flavour and appearance. The book features a range of decorating tips suitable for any home kitchen as well as more advanced methods.
The recipes in the book are gluten-free – just like the kitchen of the author, cakeartist Mona Tähtinen (@say_it_with_a_cake) . “I hope to contribute something fresh and new to the realm of cake artistry. A desire to challenge misconceptions became the driving force for the story of my company. I had to come up with my own recipes that work!”
