Originally published in 1932. This little book contains something for everyone desiring to excel in home baking. There are a variety of novelties for experienced folk, but there is also definite instruction in the preliminaries of Cake Making, and recipes of the simple economical variety with which a novice may make a succesful trial trip. It is a great temptation, on seeing an interesting recipe, to plunge into the making without due forethought, and I would urge the inexperienced to note the Success Secrets, and to read the chapter on Modern Cake Making thoroughly before beginning work. All the recipes have been testes (and eaten!) many times and are in constant use in teaching Cookery Students. Contents Include: Concerning Cakes Preparation Making Baking Icing Varieties of Cakes, Pastries, Pastry Making Cake, Old and New Cakes of Some English Counties Scotch and Irish Cakes French Cakes Canadian and American Cakes.
