“A sweet book full of incredible photography, delightfully simple recipes, and so, so much love.”—Alison Roman, author of Dining In
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES AND FOOD52
Everyone has a favorite style of cake, whether it's citrusy and fresh or chocolatey and indulgent. All of these recipes and more are within your reach in Simple Cake, a love letter from Brooklyn apron and bakeware designer Odette Williams to her favorite treat.
With easy recipes and inventive decorating ideas, Williams gives you recipes for 10 base cakes, 15 toppings, and endless decorating ideas to yield a treat—such as Milk & Honey Cake, Coconut Cake, Summer Berry Pavlova, and Chocolatey Chocolate Cake—for any occasion.
Williams also addresses the fundamentals for getting cakes just right, with foolproof recipes that can be cranked out whenever the urge strikes. Gorgeous photography, along with Williams's warm and heartfelt writing, elevate this book into something truly special.
Odette Williams is an Australian expat and baking fanatic who now calls Brooklyn home. After becoming a mother, Odette realized that she couldn't find any keepsake apron sets for her young children to don when they baked together, so she made some herself.
Friends started asking for aprons for their own children, and in 2013 Odette launched her eponymous brand. Odette Williams products—including flour scoops and cookie cutters—very quickly got picked up by leading retailers, including J.Crew, Anthropologie, ABC Carpet, Le Bon Marche, and Barneys.
