I’ll be making cupcakes for Scott’s birthday so I’ve decided I want to learn more about types of cake (or, more specifically, cupcake) frosting. I got The All New Joy of Cooking from the library, and The Cake Bible is on it’s way. I’m trying to learn more of the basics of cakes so I have a solid place to come from when I, say, want to fill them with goopy cream. Are there any good baking books that start at the begining I should consult? I’m interested in the chemical process stuff as well.
And I want to wish the best to those I know who travelled all the way to NYC to sell at the Renegade Craft Fair in Brooklyn. If you anywhere within driving distance you gotta go, Amy Sedaris is baking the cupcakes!
