Book Review:

Everyday Cake by Polina Chesnakova is an excellent choice if you are looking for a cookbook to help everyday desserts. The author clearly explains the tools and techniques needed to create delicious desserts. Chesnakova includes recipes that are adapted from classics and favorites of legendary bakers and cookbooks along with her own creations, and there are flavors to please everyone. There are lots of beautiful photos to tempt readers into wanting to get out the mixer, and the instructions are clear, even for new bakers. If you love Cake- I highly recommend you check out this book.
