"This is the stuff that cake dreams are made of . . . for those homebakers who love tinkering with tricky batters and pulling out the pastry bags" (Kitchn).

Gesine Bullock-Prado says it's what's inside that really counts, and in this visually sumptuous book, the author of Sugar Baby and Pie It Forward showcases cakes that are beautiful from the inside out. Each chapter is devoted to a technique of making different types of cake, beginning with the easiest recipe and moving to more technically difficult as the chapters progress. When the cakes are cut, they will reveal intricate layers of patterns and designs--such as hearts, checkerboards, helixes, and colorful stripes--that will bring a smile to everyone who enjoys them. This compendium of gorgeous cake recipes and techniques will yield glorious meringues, sponge cakes, pound cakes, cheesecakes, and tarts for all levels of bakers. With her trademark wit and enthusiasm for the world of confections and baking, Bullock-Prado's latest book will delight her fans.

In Gesine Bullock-Prado's first book, she tackled candy and confections; then, she moved on to pies and tarts. Now, in "Bake It Like You Mean It," she turns her attention to cakes. Creative, intricate and impressive cakes. She bases each chapter on a cake "type" (meringue, sponge, pound etc) and the recipes get progressively more challenging as each chapter progresses.

With her signature twist and trademark humour, Bullock-Prado presents an array of edible delights: some she simply covers in creamy frostings and finishes with gorgeous garnishes while the interiors of others look like chessboards, rainbows or pyramids. Bring on Lemony Angel Food Cake with Strawberry Coulis, Inside Out Red Velvet Super Sponge and Walnut Coffee Cream Torte!
