Preamble: We the people who love cake, join in union in order to bake a more perfect dessert, re-establish the standard that true cake is baked from scratch, ensure the use of natural ingredients, provide for the common consumption of dessert in moderation, and protect the grace of sharing dessert with friends and foe, so ordain and establish this Constitution of the United Cakes of America.
Warren Brown's first cookbook, "CakeLove", provided an overview of baking, with essential ingredients and equipment lists, and basic recipes for pound cakes, butter cakes, and foam cakes.
Now he's taking it to the next level, offering his unique take on more than fifty classic American cake recipes.
In "United Cakes of America", you'll find mouthwatering recipes for Chiffon Cake (California), Key Lime Pie (Florida), Coconut Cake (Hawaii), Kentucky Derby Cake, New York Style Cheesecake, Apple Butter Cake (West Virginia) and many more.
Also included are fun and informative sidebars, eye-catching photographs and a section of mix-and-match recipes for buttercreams and icings. An unlikely baker, Warren Brown (who has an admitted fear of flour) began a career in health education that eventually led to a degree in law.
A New Year's resolution in 1999 brought him into the kitchen and he hasn't left since.
Instead he's been creating amazing cakes, all from scratch.
