Consider this an introductory post. I'm making some of the cakes out of the Heavenly Cakes cookbook by Rose Levy Beranbaum and plan on hearing her at Omnivore Books in San Francisco at 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 17.
So after I complete the baking and hear her, I'll create a new post with more info, photos and more.
While you are waiting, check out this video of Rose talking about the book, her first one on cake making in 21 years, and her baking tips.
Look for me at the reading. I'll be helping to staff the Share our Strength bake sale table from 12 - 3 p.m. on Saturday. We are raising money to combat childhood hunger. What will I be baking? Well, some of Rose's baby cakes from this book.
No actual babies are harmed in the making of baby cakes.
The cookbook was given to me by SpruceTV.com, which is also the source of the Rose video mentioned above.
