"Cakes. Don’t we all just love them. But this is no ordinary book about cakes. No recipes here rest assured. With obesity levels rising and sales of coffee tables at all time highs this book is surely a match made in heaven. A coffee table book about cakes. This friendly little book takes a humorous quirky glance at our relationship with cakes and reacquaints us with aspects of them that could so easily just have passed us by. Take the apple pierates for example, somehow my history teacher seems to have glossed over them. Then there are sections on cake history, cakes around the world, the future for cakes, and one of my personal favourites is the section on the cake eating championships. There’s much much more, well there’s a bit more anyway. So take a peek inside much ado about muffin and never see cakes in the same light again."
