Layered by Tessa Huff

Despite the fact that I don't have an oven in my current apartment, I still requested this book. Because the cover is so pretty, and I always tell myself that one day, I'll learn how to bake.

And when I do, I have a feeling that this is going to be one of the first books I buy (note to self).

Layered is a gorgeous book that teaches you how to bake and put together layered cakes.  It starts with an explanation of the basics, and I have a feeling that this is what I'll be staring at the most if I ever bake a layered cake. After that, it's recipe after recipe, organised into categories. I can't possibly list all the cakes, but the categories are:

- Classic Cakes
- Chocolate Cakes
- Casual Cakes
- Whimsical Cakes
- Adventurous Cakes
- Holiday Cakes

With a total of 60 cakes, including a bonus three-tiered wedding cake (this assumes I didn't count wrongly). There are tons of cakes I'd love to try and make, and not all of them come from the Chocolate Cakes section (though I admit, I want to make most of the cakes in that section).

Each recipe is given its own introduction and there are hints on how to put it together. And of course, plenty of beautiful pictures to make you drool.

I haven't tested any of these, so I can't say if the recipes are any good, or if they're easy to follow (things always look easy to follow, but putting them into practice is different). I do, however, really want my own copy of the book.

Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for a free and honest review.
