Flour by Joanne Chang. Everything turns out good!

Cake Inspiration lately has been coming from my dear friend and master baker Maria Reisz Springer. The cakes she's been posting on facebook are really revving me up for the coming holidays.
Favorite baking cookbooks! Nick Malgieri's "Great Italian Desserts," and "Perfect Pastry," Nancie McDermott's "Southern Cakes." have all been in rotation lately.

Maida Heatter was the one that first got me serious about baking, lo these many years ago; still haven't found anything to match her books.

I have three standard cookbooks I always refer to when I want to bake a cake, one is a magazine Fine Cooking Sweet Cakes- A Special Holiday Baking Issue, Rose Levy Beranbaum The Cake Bible, and Maida Heatter's New Book of Great Desserts. Alice Medrich's Flavor Flours has been my gluten free inspiration.
