Roger Pizey’s small cakes have led the way in a huge home baking revival. From iced fairy cakes to fondant fancies, lemon drizzle cake to lime, lemon and pistachio slices, his classic bakes provide comfort moments during a busy day, make great accompaniments to afternoon tea and are a perfect excuse for sharing precious time with friends.
Small Cakes re-acquaints the reader with traditional favourites such as cheese cakes, sponge cakes, baked fruit loafs, chunky brownies and Eccles cakes. Perfectly formed miniatures become delicate indulgences rather than guilty pleasures in the creative hands of this leading pastry chef.
With chapters on fairy cakes, teatime treats, small comfort cakes and homemade classics, Roger offers ideas on how to bake a cake for any occasion. His unique approach to traditional baking is fun, inventive and, above all, delicious.
Roger Pizey is a professional baker and patissier with more than 20 years of experience. He was featured as a pastry expert on the television show Hell's Kitchen.
