There is no more indulgent treat than layers of flavoured sponge sandwiched together with scrummy fillings and decorated in the prettiest ways possible.
Containing over 30 recipes for delectable sponges and mouth-watering fillings, Love Layer Cakes provides the inspiration for years of flavoursome and fool-proof baking. The book contains cakes for teatime treats that are proven favourites at The Peggy Porschen Parlour in central London as well as brand new recipes developed especially for this book.
Peggy classics include the ever-popular salted caramel cake, covered in marbled chocolate ganache and caramel fudge squares, and vanilla cloud cake decorated with a dainty sky blue cloud stencil. New cakes include the toasted marshmallow cake, kid-friendly cheeky monkey cake, and rose and pistachio cake makes an elegant centrepiece for any occasion.
There are cake designs suitable for every occasion and, as you would expect from a master baker like Peggy Porschen, the recipes are all triple-tested to ensure perfect results for even the novice home baker. For better baking, Peggy divulges many of her golden rules for the perfect sponge plus professional cheats and tricks for perfect cake decorating and – perhaps best of all – the book comes with two free food-safe cake stencils featuring exclusive designs by Peggy Porschen herself so that you can effortlessly recreate designs from the book.
