The only cookbook that focuses exclusively on layer and sheet cakes, the fourth book in the American Baking Classics Series offers 40 delicious and detailed recipes for these old-time favorites.
Distinctively American, tall layer cakes and serve-from-the-pan sheet cakes are festive treats often baked for family gatherings, birthdays, community suppers, and school or charity bake sales. Layer Cakes and Sheet Cakes features these one-,two-, and three-layer wonders that serve up light and downy-textured cakes capped with tasty frostings, icings, and glazes.
Sure to please every time, the cake recipes include Banana Cake, Mint Chocolate Chip Cake, Wellesley Fudge Cake, Spiced Pumpkin Cake, Apple Cake with Walnuts and Raisins, and Blueberry and Spice Cake; and the frostings and icings include: Fluffy White Frosting, full of Chocolate Frosting, Creamy Coffee Frosting, Coconut-Pecan Frosting, and Cream Cheese Frosting. Along with these recipes, Lisa Yockelson, author of the three previous books in the series, also provides introductory material and notes on ingredients and equipment.
