United States of Cakes

Roy Fares

The cakes to beat all cakes
Roy Fares goes west! Los Angeles to be exact. He’s in his right element here because they know all about how to create spectacular pastries here in the City of Angels. Since Roy has spent so much time in this city, he is more than familiar with American cakes and desserts, but he wanted to learn even more. He set out to visit some of the city’s most famous bakeries where he met some very interesting people who shared his passion for all things sweet and, against all odds, he managed to get them to divulge some of their finest recipes.

United States of Cakes contains about 55 recipes divided into five chapters: Sponge Cakes, Cookies & Confectionary, Gateaux, Cheesecakes and Pies, Cupcakes & Cake Pops and American Breakfasts. Classic American cakes and desserts are interspersed with new and exciting recipes. Some of them are wonderfully rustic while others are sugary sweet.

Snickers Cheesecake, Frozen Peanut Butter Cream Pie, Cappuccino Cupcakes, Chocolate Waffles, Fudge Brownies and Banana Nut Bread are just a few of the wonderful recipes just waiting to be baked. Prepare yourself for a Super Duper Sugar Overload!

This isn’t your ordinary book of American baking recipes; in this one you’ll be using your sense of sight just as much as your senses of taste and smell. In fact the photography is so stunning in United States of Cakes that you’ll feel as though you are actually there in Los Angeles with Roy!
