Piece of Cake is what I like to call a basic, no frills cookbook. Its recipes are precise, simple and none of them needs ingredients that you can’t find in your local markets or grocery stores. Cake should always be like that; not pretentious, not with unknown flavors or random textures throughout it. When it reaches that point, you lose what cake is really about: comfort and happiness. That’s the reason you serve birthday cakes at parties, and it’s basically what you crave at times. A good, moist slice of cake (with or without icing is your call).
