Product Details


“The premise of Simple Cake is a lovely one: It aims to make baking a cake the kind of thing you do to celebrate life’s little moments as well as the big ones, from a lost tooth to a milestone birthday. . . . This book is perfect for newlyweds, a new parent or anyone looking to make new traditions.”
New York Times, Best Cookbooks of Spring 2019

“It’s gorgeous, and warm and delicious with every turn of the page.”
—Christina Tosi, chef-founder-owner, Milk Bar and author of All About Cake

“The idea of offering ten base cakes, fifteen toppings, a flavor chart, and dozens of decorating ideas is both fun and ingenious! This might be the only cake book one needs.” 
—Helen Goh, co-author of Sweet

Simple Cake delivers quick and easy cakes that you can enjoy any day or dress up for special occasions. The recipes are unfussy and joyful; they are the perfect excuse to share with the ones you love. You will make these cakes part of your baking legacy.” 
—Aran Goyoaga, author of Small Plates & Sweet Treats and creator of Cannelle et Vanille

Simple Cake is such a sweet book full of incredible photography, delightfully simple recipes, and so, so much love. It’s as deeply personal as it is useful and I can’t wait to bake from it.” 
—Alison Roman, author of Dining In and Nothing Fancy

“Wonderfully uncomplicated . . . Thoughtful and inspiring, this fresh take on cakes should find an enthusiastic audience.”
