Title: Daisy Cakes Bakes
Author: Kim Nelson
Date of Publication: February 27th, 2018
A beautiful baking cookbook of 100 recipes for the delicious cakes that made Daisy Cakes a huge success story of ABC’s Shark Tank, plus cookies, pies, cobblers, and more–with 60 photographs evoking a sense of nostalgia for making your own family recipes.
The scent of cake baking in the oven, the pretty sheen of frosting being whipped up nice and light, or the glorious mess of measuring and mixing ingredients for cookie dough are memories cherished by many a home baker. Kim Nelson grew up learning to make family recipes alongside her mother, grandmothers, and great aunt. This pastime blossomed into Kim’s beloved company, Daisy Cakes, which ships delicious Southern layer cakes in keepsake tins all across the US. Daisy Cakes Bakes shares those family cake recipes, as well as recipes for cookies, bars, confections, pies, ice creams, and more. The flavors are rich but never cloying, the recipes are crowd-pleasing and simple to make, and Kim’s engaging stories will inspire everyone to start their own baking traditions.
I first saw Daisy Cakes on Shark Tank and instantly wanted to eat them all. Then I remember I looked up the cost online and was like, never mind!
Now, though, I can make my own! The pictures inside were utterly delectable with easy to follow instructions. And the red velvet cake!!!!!!!!!!!
Anyway, I would need to actually make one to see how it would turn out to properly rate this book. But either way, it’s fun to look at!
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
What’s your favorite kind of cake?
