Edd Kimber has a way with cake – he excels in simple treats like individual carrot cakes and s’mores cake to slick specialties like a macaron tower or a chocolate meringue concorde. Everyone from novice to accomplished baker will enjoy his easy to follow recipes. Edd’s showstopper style earned him the championship in the first "Great British Bakeoff" and he’s been going non-stop ever since. SAY IT WITH CAKE is the go-to book for fun, delicious, and just great cakes. (Nick Malgieri, author of Bake! and Bread 4/29/13
Cake addicts beware: SAY IT WITH CAKE is filled with page after page of recipes you will feel compelled to make. The Chocolate & Amaretto Baked Alaska is worth the cover price (and the calories) alone. SAY IT WITH CAKE is the rare baking book that doesn’t have a single solitary unnecessary (i.e. filler) recipe (and we should all be thankful for Edd’s Hangover Cake—simply genius). It is the kind of book that will thrive in your kitchen (packed with photos, easy-to-follow directions), and follow you to your nightstand for dreamy inspiration.

A Sweet with a Serious Wow FactorThough this dessert looks like a plain white, frosted cake, slicing into it reveals seven Roygbiv-colored layers that will undoubtedly elicit oohs and aahs. The recipe, from Edd Kimber's Say It with Cake, may take a bit more time to prepare than others, but we guarantee you'll be licking the confetti-colored crumbs off the plate.
