Baked Explorations

Baked Explorations
by Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito, $29.95
Baking does not have to be a strong suit for you to give this confection a whirl. It’s not Baking for Dummies, but neither is it an impossible Martha Stewart tome. This homage to tweaked classics—Boston cream pie cake, red-velvet whoopie pies—falls nicely between books for ambi-tious home bakers and those for designer-crowd bakeologists. Guests will swoon over the Stump de Noël, bedecked in meringue mushrooms and rosemary sprigs.
