Let them eat CAKE

The pictures alone in Lauren Chattman's Cake Keeper Cakes: 100 Simple Recipes for Extraordinary Bundt Cakes, Pound Cakes, Snacking Cakes and Other Good-to-the-Last Crumb Treats brought on a pavlovian response in me that doesn't really need an explanation. I enjoy cook books, and there have been a number of good ones for tweens and teens published recently.

Among the nice things about this one are the abundance of colour photos, a great opening explanatory section that covers equipment, ingredients, and techniques and gives recipes for an abundance of different kinds of cakes that will surely offer something for everyone. Who doesn't like cake? Especially one that is designed to stay moist, offers all kinds of ingredients (but which doesn't require too many fancy ingredients or equipment) AND comes with clear directions? A win-win, all the way around.
