There's something sad about leftover cake. Ask most any home cook, and you'll find they're more of a pie or cookie baker than a cake baker. There's a problem with baking a cake: unless you're taking it to a potluck party or holiday gathering, there's just too much of it. Enter Little Cakes: 50 plus Perfectly Proportioned Confections to Enjoy Any Day of the Week. Author Candace Floyd has taken the guesswork out of scaling down classic and original recipes and included them among the five-dozen delicious, easy-to-make treats that can be enjoyed any day of the week. These little cakes are perfectly sized confections serving four to eight and pack no less of a delightful wallop. With just enough to polish off in one sitting so the leftovers don't linger, these little cakes are mini versions of American favourites like Peach Upside Down Cake, Yellow Butter Cake, Hummingbird Cake, and Gingerbread Cake. Also included are original recipes that sure to be added to the family's hit list, like the One-Egg Dinner Cake, Jam Cake, and Fresh Apple Cake. With mouthwatering photos of each cake to inspire you, easy-to-follow recipes to guide you, and lovely icings and toppings to add flavourful flair, Little Everyday Cakes will be the baking cookbook you'll pull from the shelf again and again - because every day deserves a little treat.
