Beautiful, of-the-moment cakes are easy to create with Benjamina’s professional tricks and streamlined baking process. After receiving countless accolades as a finalist on The Great British Baking Show, Benjamina is sharing her tricks of the trade with readers. Drawing inspiration from her Nigerian heritage, and her life in multi-cultural London, these gorgeous cakes are packed with exquisite flavor. Each recipe is perfectly composed to include a short list of key ingredients, making it quick and easy to bake stunning, occasion worthy desserts. New bakers will get the basics on layer cakes, bundts, loaves and more, while experienced bakers will learn to infuse their cakes with amazing flavor.

Fresh fruits, aromatic herbs, toasted nuts and enticing spices make for irresistible, unexpected, combinations such as the Caramelized Plantain Cake, the Coconut, Raspberry and Rose Roulade, and the Prosecco, Mint and Ginger Cake. Rather than heavy layers of buttercream, these cakes take a trendy, minimalist approach to decoration. Readers will learn to use light glazes, artful frosting, fruit and nuts to add contemporary flair to irresistible bakes. From the Salted Chocolate and Praline Cake to the Turmeric Milk Bundt, these singular creations will impress at any party, family gathering or holiday.
