by THE BAKING SHOW TEAM (Author), Hollywood, Paul (Author)

ISBN: 9780593138397

The ultimate cake bible and the first Americanized cookbook from the beloved television series-featuring more than 75 recipes for cakes, cupcakes, and other sweet treats from fan-favorite contestants.

The Big Book of Amazing Cakes brings the magic of The Great British Baking Show to your kitchen with easy-to-follow recipes for every shape, size, and delicious flavor of cake you can imagine. The 77 recipes (including gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan options) in The Big Book of Amazing Cakes include a wide range of simple and spectacular desserts that will thrill longtime fans of GBBS and dessert devotees alike.

Whether you're looking for a simple, low-effort cheesecake or gooey brownies, or you're looking to flaunt your decorating skills with crowd-pleasers such as Flora's Black Forest Gateau, Selasi's Three-tiered Floral Cake, or Rahul's Edible Rock Garden Cake, you'll find recipes that span 10 years of GBBS episodes (with each recipe noting which baker and which season it comes from) as well as additional recipes developed especially for Amazing Cakes by the behind-the-scenes team in the tent. Amazing Cakes is chock full of decorating tips, and many recipes show how a single batter recipe can be riffed upon to create cakes with a myriad of decorations, shapes, and sizes. With clear, easy-to-follow instructions (and exclusive on-set photography from the newest season), readers will feel prepared to create visually stunning, decadent bakes that even Paul and Prue would declare absolute winners.

The first official GBBS cookbook with recipes fully converted for the American home baker, Amazing Cakes is the crash-course that every cake afficionado and GBBS fan needs for spectacular bakes, every time. Penguin: Viking Fall 2019
