The book, Layered: Baking, Building, and Styling Spectacular Cakesis all about - you guessed it, CAKES!  Layer cakes, to be exact.  I've packed 288 pages full of my all-time favorite recipes, tips and tricks from my years making cakes, and some crafty tutorials so you can make bakery-style cakes at home!  From the classics like Red Velvet and Boston Cream Pie to more whimsical and adventurous flavors like Strawberry Confetti, Mango Coconut Cream, and Red Wine Blackberry, there is a recipe for every occasion.  I've added some helpful step-by-step photos as well as a stylish, full-page image (or two) for EACH cake.

“Tessa Huff has a way with cake. In her hands, butter, sugar, flour, and eggs become something more than mere ingredients in a recipe, and cake is elevated to art form. I could happily feast for days on just her photographs of these creations, but Tessa’s companionable presence and quiet insistence throughout this book that I, too, can make these beauties for myself pulls me straight into the kitchen. Too pretty to eat? Nah. Grab a fork.
