Walter, an experienced cooking teacher, includes more than 250 recipes for cakes of all types here, but the majority are classified as Quick and Easy--dozens of pound cakes, coffee cakes, and more. There are also a variety of
special occasion cakes as well as numerous frostings, sauces, and other "finishing touches" for both simple and fancy cakes. Recipe instructions are very specific, and the lengthy introductory section is full of useful trouble-shooting tips. Less
sophisticated than Rose Levy Beranbaum's acclaimed Cake Bible ( LJ 8/88) and Susan Purdy's more wide-ranging Piece of Cake ( LJ 8/89), but a worthy companion to these excellent books.

Carole Walter has had a love affair with baking since she was a child. That passion has flowered into a professional career that has taken Walter around the world to study baking and the culinary arts with renowned
chefs in Austria, Denmark, France, and Italy, as well as in the United States. For twenty years she has been sharing this wealth of expertise with her own students, and now she shares it with you.
With Carole Walter at your side, you will be able
to achieve professional results every time. Her clear instructions and invaluable tips will help you avoid the common pitfalls that every baker, no matter how experienced, faces from time to time.
Many of the cake recipes in Great Cakes can be
baked in under an hour and don't require frosting or filling, yet they are attractive enough to serve to company. Here are recipes for Old-Fashioned Pound Cake and Streusel Lemon Torte, Chocolate Marble Cheesecake and Italian Purple Plum Cake, and more
-- over 250 recipes in all.
You'll also find an array of basic butter cakes, jelly roll cakes, coffee cakes and cheese cakes, as well as cakes that have fruit, nuts, and vegetables as their main ingredients. Once you've mastered the basics, you
can go on to fillings, frostings, glazes, and toppings for glorious results.
A complete compendium of cake recipes, this is the only cake baking book you'll ever need, the one you'll use again and again to make simple yet utterly delicious cakes
for your family and friends. Great Cakes is more than a "cookbook" -- it's a baking course between two covers.
