Sit yourself down on the porch swing and get ready to take a long, sweet look at the classic cake specialties in "Southern Cakes". From Brown Sugar Poundcake and fluffy white coconut cakes layered with lemon curd or raspberry jam to the chocolatey goodness of Mississippi Mud Cake and the extravagant elegance of Lady Baltimore Cake, you'll soon see why Southerners are so proud of their culinary history. Jam cakes and jelly rolls; humble pear bread and peanut cake; cakes with 1, 2, 3, and 4 layers; and even Eudora Welty's bourbon-soaked white fruitcake - each moist and delicious forkful represents the hospitality and welcome-to-the-South attitude of those who live below the Mason-Dixon line.

"Food writer Nancie McDermott has compiled 65 of the most sinfully delicious cakes south of the Mason-Dixon line, and the result could make even Scarlet O'Hara weak in the knees...The recipes all have a down-home feel, but many of the cakes also have a touch of elegance." "Choclatier Magazine," December 2007

"Every recipe has a charming headnote, often showing a bit of historical research, and about a third are illustrated with color photos. McDermott's handy introductory chapter on cake baking includes the very Southern advice to buy butter on sale and keep it in the freezer 'so you are baking-ready 24/7.'" "Los Angeles Times," August 22, 2007

"For my money, the grandest-looking cakes in this book are the brown sugar pound cakes baked in a tube pan with a lush mass of caramel glaze drooling down its sides, and the classic coconut cake, with its feathery, dazzling white frosting. When I brought the coconut cake to the office, people in the street were literally lunging at it." "Los Angeles Times," August 22, 2007

"It's little wonder that Southerners are proud of their baking history. Southern Cakes is filled with the kinds of recipes that make you want to take time to relax and enjoy something delectable." The Arlington Advocate, March 2008"
