Piece of Cake blog is Shauna Sever Webb’s outlet for indulging her sweet tooth cravings. Webb did not grow up licking the cake batter off of her mother’s well-worn wooden spoon -- she was a child of the late 70s with a modern-woman kind of mother who could cook but did not especially care to bake. Instead, Webb learned to bake from scratch only after she got married and received a slew of extraordinary kitchen gear as gifts.
Today, almost three years into her blog, she rarely remembers what she ate for dinner but always remembers dessert and bakes a few times a week (putting her stamp on the classics), always with her toddler daughter at her side. Webb also daydreams of a long loud lunch with her baking inspirations: Ina Garten, Lynne Rossetto Kasper, Shirley Corriher, Christopher Kimball and Nick Malgieri.
