What’s a cake? If you’re living in the United States, a cake is a sweet, often layered dessert treat, usually frosted and served at a celebration such as a birthday, a wedding, or an anniversary. In France, patisseries offer edible works of art, combining architectural skill with a facility in combining sugar and flour. China is home to the mooncake, England gives us “puddings” (which are often cakes!), Australia perfected the Pavlova meringue cake in honor of the Russian prima ballerina, and bite-sized fruit fritters are popular in West Africa.

Author Krystina Castella became intrigued by the cultural history of cake when she hosted a bake sale with the international students she teaches and each student brought a cake from his or her family’s heritage. This collection of international cakes was the beginning of A World of Cake, an adventurous exploration of global cake culture. The fascinating culinary journey includes all kinds of fun-to-read facts, such as “A Field Guide to Cakes,” “A World Tour of Cake Holidays,” and “Family Trees” for each kind of cake. Clear instructions, illustrations, and hundreds of color photos accompany the recipes. Who knew that edification could be this much fun? Or this delicious?

Including doughnuts, fritters, dumplings, milk treats, candy, and frosting, A World of Cake is more than a cookbook, more than an anthropology lesson, and way more fun than a textbook. Where else could readers find an entire section devoted to cakes named after famous people? With subcategories? Castella embraces the spirit of celebration with this big, must-have book for anyone who loves making, eating, or just enjoying any version of a sweet treat.

The Author:
Krystina Castella is the author of Pops!, Crazy About Cupcakes, and Discovering Nature’s Alphabet. She is a professor at the Art Center College of Design, founder of the Design Entrepreneur Network, and past owner of a manufacturing and licensing company. She lives in southern California.

From East to West, primitive to progressive, most common to mostavant-garde, cakes are good or the soul. They draw peopletogether, enliven celebrations, and in one charming and bliss-ul indulgence embody the rituals and histories o culturesaround the world. The cakes we create in our own kitchenscan transport us anywhere in place or time, rom modern-day Tokyo to medieval England, rom colonial Indonesia toancient Egypt. At home we can tinker with recipes to mod-ernize traditions, incorporate local ingredients, or personal-ize recipes to make them our own.Cakes are rich with meaning and symbolism, inspiredby the celebrations that surround them. As a curious cakelover, I’ve always been interested in this crossover betweencultural and culinary history. Why are ruitcakes tradition-ally made or Christmas, and why would my riends bring home a box o pineapple cakes rom their trip to Taiwan? Why do Japanese street vendors in Brazil sell red beancakes alongside the local avorites, corn cakes and pineapplepudium? I wanted to know, and I wanted to learn to choosethe right (or perectly inappropriate) cake or the occasion— whatever the occasion. What could be a better way to learnabout ood history, cultural evolutions, religions, ingredi-ents, and techniques than through baking some cakes? So Ilaunched on my quest to explore the cakes o the world.In
 A World o Cake
, you’ll nd more than 150 recipes orwhat I believe are the greatest cakes on earth. In addition totheir phenomenal avors, what makes each o these cakes a standout is its cultural signicance, its importance as a branchon a cake amily tree, or its spread and evolution rom regionto region — or all three. As much in the world as can t in thepages o this book are represented. You won’t nd all cakes,but you will nd the classics and unknown gems. I hope thisbook will encourage you to get out there and experience someo them, heading of into the sinully sweet, mouthwatering,eye-opening adventures o the world o cakes.
