Seasonal Baking Celebrating the Baking Year with Classic Cakes, Cupcakes, Biscuits and Delicious Treats Synopsis

Royal cake maker, Fiona Cairns, knows how important the seasons are when creating delicious cakes. Not only are ingredients at their very best and cheapest, but it also makes sense to be in tune with the changing colours, moods and celebrations of the seasons. In the spring, why not try baking early rhubarb and vanilla custard cupcakes? On a hot summer's day enjoy a mango pavlova, and on a cold winter's afternoon curl up by the fireside and share a slice of chocolate and cardamom tart. From edible gifts to party and celebration cakes, plus decorating ideas and drink suggestions, SEASONAL BAKING is full of inspiration whatever the time of year or occasion. Fiona Cairns supplies cakes for Waitrose, Selfridges, Harrods, Sainsbury's and Bon Marche Paris and was the official cake designer for Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding. Many of the cakes in this book are accompanied by decorating ideas, as well as seasonal drink suggestions. Whether you find yourself in the kitchen wondering what to bake for the simple pleasure of it, to share or give to a friend or maybe bake for a party large or small - whatever the time of year or occasion, you will find plenty of ideas.
