A World of Cake: 150 Recipes for Sweet Traditions from Cultures Near and Far by Krystina Castella, Storey Publishing, 343 pp., $24.95
Mochi rice cakes in Japan; Nutmeg Cake in Armenia; almond pasty M'hanncha (Snake Cake-because it looks like a snake, not made of snake); and vibrant Pandan Cake in Indonesia.
A real world tour of a cake book. I would eat all of these cakes, and I would become very fat.
