Little Cakes with Attitude
Kate Shirazi makes beautiful and irreverently decorated cupcakes with eggs from her own free-range flock of (battery rescue) hens – they are cupcakes with both conscience and attitude.
Combining a no-nonsense approach to cooking and an insatiable appetite for cake, here is a collection of delicious new recipes and fun designs for cupcakes. A lively, colourful book packed with baking tips, captivating new cake designs, modern photography and delightful illustrations, it is split into low-faff, middling-faff and high-faff recipes, with ideas for both sweet and savoury, children’s and adult’s, seasonal and special occasion designs.
Importantly, there is also a section devoted to ingredients and equipment and not to forget the author’s hens and the significance of using free-range eggs.
The author writes in such an informal style, and with such enthusiasm and humour, that the reader is borne along on her passion for cupcakes!
"Packed with baking tips and delicious recipes, and (some but not enough for my liking) photographs of the finished cakes." - Cake Craft & Decoration Magazine
