Daisy Cakes Bakes: Keepsake Recipes for Southern Layer Cakes, Pies, Cookies, and More – Cover to Cover and Everything In Between

The scent of cake baking in the oven, the pretty sheen of frosting being whipped up nice and light, or the glorious mess of measuring and mixing ingredients for cookie dough are memories cherished by many a home baker. Kim Nelson grew up learning to make family recipes alongside her mother, grandmothers, and great aunt. This pastime blossomed into Kim’s beloved company, Daisy Cakes, which ships delicious Southern layer cakes in keepsake tins all across the US. Daisy Cakes Bakes shares those family cake recipes, as well as recipes for cookies, bars, confections, pies, ice creams, and more. The flavors are rich but never cloying, the recipes are crowd-pleasing and simple to make, and Kim’s engaging stories will inspire everyone to start their own baking traditions.

You know how thinking or reading about good food makes your mouth water? Well, this book does exactly that. As soon as I got this book, I quickly skimmed through it for an idea of what kind of recipes are in it. Well, I just had to take a second look right away. All of the recipes looked too die for.

For example, there was a pie crust that had pretzels in it. Pretzels! I was in love immediately.

However, since my family and I are trying to eat healthier, I have not made it yet. I am guessing though that I will make it pretty soon. I can never resist the temptation of such good recipes.

The cover is very cute. Just the cover alone made me want to read this book. I mean, that cake looks so good! 5 stars to the photographer!

The oven in my house is sure to be heating up sometime soon so I can try out a few of these recipes! I am sure they are as good as they sound and look! 5 stars to Kim Nelson! I hope she keeps writing more recipe books like this!
