Cookbook Review: CakeLove: How To Bake Cakes From Scratch

cakelove

Warren Brown’s first foray into cookbook writing, “CakeLove: How to Bake Cakes from Scratch”, was published on May 1st, and like many dessert lovers and home bakers, I could barely contain my enthusiasm when I finally got to plunk down my $27.50 for the oversized tome, full of beautiful photographs by Renee Comet.

If the name Warren Brown sounds vaguely familiar to you, it may be because you’ve seen him on Oprah or Today, or maybe because of his second (third, now) job hosting Sugar Rush on the Food Network. Brown left his law career and opened his first CakeLove bakery in Washington, DC in 2002, which has since branched out to three bakeries and a cafe, with two more bakeries in the works.

Cake. We can all agree that it’s awesome, correct? Good. While it’s undeniably easy to stop in your trendiest neighborhood bakery or pick up a boxed mix and a tub of frosting (and please just… don’t), making a cake from scratch is not nearly as intimidating as you might think. In fact, I’m fully confident that anyone with a mixer and a bundt pan can successfully bake this cake. Besides, starting from a recipe as great as this one, you don’t have to be an expert baker, you just have to have good notes from the real recipe experts - in this case, grandmothers.

In Brief: Portal tattoos

Portal tattoos

Some brave soul just immortalized their love of my favorite game, , in the form of a tattoo. Our only comments: what will the cake look like in 50 years, and wouldn’t it have been more appropriate to put the companion cube over the heart, and the cake on the tummy?

Remember kids: Cake and lies on gamer thighs is the only way to show your true gamer colors!

cakeAt the risk of feeling and looking older than my years, I share with you this picture of my birthday cake from last month. I hesitated to share it, as it is alludes to my true age--notice the look of horror? amazement? on Alijah's face as he stares in disbelief at the cake about to burn to ashes in front of him, before he could get his first taste. Quick, someone grab a fire extinguisher!!
