The Cake Lover’s Recipe Notebook is a must-have for anyone who loves cake – and who doesn’t?

The current passion for baking shows no signs of waning and this gorgeous-looking notebook is the ideal place to keep all your favourite recipes, whether passed down through generations or from friend to friend, or copied down from a magazine. In addition, an experienced baker may taste a new concoction in a pâtisserie or café and be inspired to try to re-create the combination of flavours at home. This is the place to record the results.
The practical wiro-bound notebook is separated into eight sections, with convenient tabs for easy navigation. It begins with a really useful section on basic ingredients and essential equipment and techniques, which describes in simple terms the difference between soft brown and Demerara sugar, beating and folding in, baking sheets and sandwich tins. Die-hard bakers will use this as a handy checklist, while those who are better versed in eating cake than baking it will find the straightforward advice invaluable. There is also handy space for you to make your own notes and shopping lists.
Each of the following sections – Cake-Tin Cakes, Everyday Cakes, Little Cakes, Posh Cakes, Fancies & Frivolities and Celebration Cakes – offers two mouth-watering recipes to get you started. Then follows a series of prettily patterned blank pages for you to write out your own recipes, notes, ideas and experiments.

Jane Brocket is the successful author of The Gentle Art of Domesticity and Cherry Cake and Ginger Beer. Both books include recipes for favourite family treats and old-fashioned cakes. She has written about baking with children for The Guardian and her baking skills have been featured on Claudia Winkleman's Radio 2 Friday Culture Show. Jane's blog Yarnstorm was started in 2007 and covers quilting, baking, colour, culture and inspiration. Yarnstorm is regarded as the leading domestic/craft blog in the UK, but also has a very wide international readership in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
