The Caker's new book! WHOLESOME CAKES, COOKIES AND DESSERTS

The Caker's new book is finally here! A great deal of time and creativity went into the 76 seasonal cake, cookie and dessert recipes that you'll find here, all with a focus on being wholesome and nutritious. The majority of the recipes are refined sugar free, gluten free, dairy free and/or vegan. 
This beautiful, modern, coffee table-esque book is $49.99 and will be available from all leading book stores from September 10th.

Published by Beatnik in 2015.

AND, we also have a brand spanking new website!!!! It's been a long time coming, but it's now mobile friendly and about a million times more user friendly. And one of the best things about it is that you can now pre-order the new recipe book in a matter of seconds. Every pre-order purchase will come with a special thank you note allowing you to collect a complimentary minicake from us after September 10th. Get online now www.thecaker.co.nz

Things we've made this week...



My cake making class in LA was a success! I made 3 of my favourite recipes from my new book in front of a lovely audience of 15. I feel so blown away that I have somewhat of a following on the other side of the world. Thanks so much to all of those who came. And big thanks to Robin and Jojo, who run LittleMeatsLA, for letting me use their beautiful loft to host the class.
