Baking is as much a therapy as eating cake. The Violet Bakery in East London is definitely one of my happy places. Claire's recipes are both modern and classic at the same time with wonderful use of seasonal ingredients and unusual flavours making for some of the best cakes i have ever baked.

Almost every page of this book is dog-eared and/or stained. I use it that much. In this book, Claire Ptak teaches us to use seasonal ingredients to conjure cake magic. She is far and away, one of my favorite bakers in London.
