Did you know that it is less expensive to order books online than to just cross the street for a convenient visit to your local bookstore? I certainly didn’t. What can I say, I’m still old school. I only have a few cake books in my “Kitchen Library” so I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of these two! Party Cakes by Mich Turner (Little Venice Cake Company) and Simply Spectacular Cakes by Peggy Porschen (Peggy Porschen Cakes).

I have a fixation on European baked goods, cake creators/decorators and pastry chefs so these will be great additions. I plan to recreate some of my childhood favorites from the UK and to work my way through these books and show the results right here so roll on July 3 (their arrival date)!
