Bake It Like You Mean It

by Gesine Bullock-Prado Tina Rupp

Gesine Bullock-Prado says it's what's inside that really counts, and in this visually sumptuous book, the author of Sugar Baby and Pie It Forward showcases cakes that are beautiful from the inside out. Each chapter is devoted to a technique of making different types of cake, beginning with the easiest recipe and moving to more technically difficult as the chapters progress. When the cakes are cut, they will reveal intricate layers of patterns and designs--such as hearts, checkerboards, helixes, and colorful stripes--that will bring a smile to everyone who enjoys them. This compendium of gorgeous cake recipes and techniques will yield glorious meringues, sponge cakes, pound cakes, cheesecakes, and tarts for all levels of bakers. With her trademark wit and enthusiasm for the world of confections and baking, Bullock-Prado's latest book will delight her fans.

Pie It Forward

by Gesine Bullock-Prado Tina Rupp

"It's a conundrum I can't understand. Someone's hankering for pie; you can see the pie-longing in their eyes. They want a delicious flaky crust, something with buttery overtones. They want fresh fruit--not a vague whisper of berry in a butter cream, but overt chunks of apple, discernible bites of berry. But it's just not done. You don't serve pie at special events like fiftieth birthdays, dinner parties, silver anniversaries, or, God forbid, at a wedding. To which I reply, 'Bullpuckies.'" And so begins Pie It Forward: Pies, Tarts, Tortes, Galettes, and Other Pastries Reinvented. Pie has always been a popular cookbook topic, yet in Pie It Forward, baker, confectioner, and pastry master Gesine Bullock-Prado unveils an entirely new frontier of pies, redefining what can be done with a piecrust and pastry shell. Expect lattice and cutouts with an entirely modern twist. Homemade puff pastry made easy. Individual pie pops to replace tired cupcakes. Surprising and wildly successful explorations with beer (Chocolate Stout Pudding Pie), exotic fruits (Yuzu-Ginger Rice Pudding Meringue Pie), and candy-making (Earl Grey Truffle Tart). And there are the classics too--riffing on her German roots, her Hollywood background, and life on her Vermont farm--a Blueberry Brown Butter Tart, an Italian Plum Tart with a yeasted-dough crust, a tiramisu-inspired Espresso Tart, a Vermont Pizza Pie, and more. Including sweet, savory, layered, and miniature pies and tarts, Bullock-Prado presents these recipes with a voice that removes the intimidation factor and inspires readers to break out of the double-crust straitjacket and try her signature creations--and to laugh out loud along the way.
