A beautiful Southern Living cookbook filled with over 150 cake recipes for every occasion.

The Southern Cake Book by Southern Living

 

Calling all cake lovers!   I’m so excited to share The Southern Cake Book by Southern Living with you.  Cakes seem to be at the center of so many celebrations and this cookbook will help you whip up cakes for any occasion with recipes for beginners to seasoned bakers.  There are over 150 recipes for every type of cake imaginable with something for everyone…I mean EVERYONE!  You’ll find mini cakes, layer cakes, party cakes, sheet cakes, pound cakes, cheesecakes and more.

When this cookbook arrived in the mail, I couldn’t wait to sit down and start reading it.  Just look at the beautiful Ambrosia Cake on the cover!  There is one stunning photo after another of every single recipe.  My mouth was watering and I was about to drool on the pages!  Don’t ask me what my favorite cake would be in this book because there’s absolutely no way I could choose.  OK, if I must, I would start with one of the pound cakes.  Speaking of pound cake, I’ve eaten a piece for breakfast more than once.  How about you?  Come on, admit that you’ve eaten cake for breakfast too…and I’m not just talking coffee cake.
