"Healthy living doesn't mean we can't treat ourselves once in a while, especially with cakes this beautiful - and full of goodness." Calgary Avansino, Vogue.co.uk "In a stunning new book, pastry chef Henrietta Inman puts an inspired new spin on the traditional sweet repertoire." YOU magazine, Mail on Sunday "If anyone can square the fashion/cake circle it's the 28-year-old Lanesborough-trained pastry chef Henrietta Inman ... Inman's recipes are free of dairy, gluten and refined sugar, but most importantly they are delicious. ... To my mind, Inman's blueberry and lime cream cakes are surpassed only by her raspberry, rose and pistachio tarts. ... Unlike most "free-from" recipes, Inman's are straightforward and light on newfangled ingredients. Finally we can have our cake and wear skinny jeans, if it weren't for the fact that skinny jeans are over." Anna Murphy, The Times
