Calendar of Cakes

Recipes, tips and tricks from the South Australian Country Women's Association

Fiona Roberts, Jacqui Way

Calendar of Cakes
Lamingtons, anyone? Homemade, we mean, and created with love from the South Australian Country Women's Association's near-century of baking wisdom. Or perhaps it's a big day. How about a jaw-dropping five-layer pink ombre cake?

Calendar of Cakes offers a cake for every week of the year, plus cakes for special occasions. Easy-to-follow recipes using each season's freshest flavours, combined with a comprehensive baking guide and SACWA cooks' tips make this your cake cookbook of the year.

Berry pavlovas and peach cakes in summer, fig tortes and plum streusel in autumn, winter's marmalade cake and spring's strawberry sponge - these recipes have been passed down through generations, perfected over years, and are beautifully presented here, ready for you, your family and friends to enjoy.

Jacqui Way is an award-winning photographer who has specialised in shooting food for over 17 years. From early childhood and the influences of a country grandmother, she has had an insatiable appetite for all things edible. Jacqui's career in photography has seen her express this passion through cookbooks and magazine editorials, her clients ranging from large food companies to small local producers, restaurants and wineries. From cockles to chocolate, pastry to pig's bottoms, she never tires of looking for the beauty in what she photographs. Naturally the chance to shoot and eat cake with a group of lovely women for a worthy organisation was not one to pass by. Jacqui can vouch that all the cakes in this book are extremely tasty!
