The secret ingredient in any cake is not found in many baking guides, because it’s …love!
The theme of love, not only of baking, but of life, family and food is predominant on every page of siblings Callie Maritz and Mari–Louis Guy’s book Cakes to Celebrate Love and Life.
Founders of boutique bakery and food styling Cake Bread, Callie and Mari-Louis grew up in the kitchen surrounded by a family whose love of food, produce and baking was part of their daily lives.
They have jumped at the chance of spreading the love and showing South Africa all that they have learned about cakes and baking from their travels and studies from around the world.
Filled with sinfully delightful recipes of cakes, covering all baking terrain, from sugar cookies to éclairs, fortune cookies and cupcakes, a red velvet cake and vegan and rawfood cakes, this book is a baker’s (practiced or novice) dream.
