Years in the making, my cookbook is finally here! I'm so excited to share my favorite recipes with you in 8 chapters of delicious goodness! You'll also find all my go-to tips for baking the best tasting cakes and decorating the most beautiful looking cakes in a full chapter of written and picture tutorials and instructions. 

This 416 page cookbook is filled with pictures, how-tos, and 170 recipes for cake layers, fillings, buttercreams, and toppings.

Love it

I bought this book after seeing Courtney’s instagram. I made a cake immediately after getting the book - the recipes are easy, have things you’d normally have in your pantry, and she makes her recipes easy to do in parts during the week. I expect to use this book with my kids for many years to come - and it has now made me a cake person. If you like to bake and want a reliable cookbook, this is it. A cake for every occasion!

A standout in my large collection of cookbooks

I discovered Courtney when she was recommended by mega-talented event planner Steve Moore. I was delighted by the blog, both Courtney’s wealth of information and her personality. After making several cakes from her blog I was stoked to get my hands on this book. This is a BIG cookbook. Very complete, with multiple recipes for every flavor preference and holiday, and is inclusive of people with special dietary considerations (like gluten-free). There is also complete information for things like assembly, decoration, and traveling with cakes. Everything about this book is current and fresh. So many cake cookbooks are stuck in the past—super unhealthy ingredients, the same old decorating techniques, the same few recipes on repeat with only minor variations, and often a focus on appearance over taste (looking at you, fondant). Here it’s like Courtney has reimagined cakes from the ground up. Stellar flavors and ingredients (most of which are not too fussy and easily sourced between the grocery store and the craft store). Plenty of stuff that is unique to the book and not found on the blog, too. Once you get the hang of the cakes in the book it’s a cinch to start swapping fillings and experimenting with your own flavor substitutions and combinations. Truly this book helps you understand cakes and cake making so you can become like Courtney herself, thinking up your own recipes!

Cake Recipe Book Triumph

I found Courtney’s Instagram through mutual friends (and eventually employer) and always knew I wanted to make my own cakes once I transitioned to being a SAHM, so I preordered her book and grabbed her cake scraper set. This book is a JOY to look through and whether you’re a beginner baker, an amateur, or a professional looking for new ideas, this book was put together PERFECTLY! There’s beautiful photos, tons of unique flavors that she’s cultivated over years of practice, and the front gives step by step instructions and advice for building your cakes. You can totally take one element from 3 or 4 different recipes and make something your own, too! This book is absolutely worth its cost and more - no wonder it’s sold out now! I highly recommend this guide - bravo, Courtney!!

Good book but too pricey on my side

I like the book and the setting but it was a bit of pricey on my side. I had to pay $113 for the book and the shipping. It came in very fast and in good condition except for some bruising on the edges of the covers. Thanks Courtney
