This beautifully photographed book offers a simple and creative approach to baking layer cakes, and making fillings and frostings.

Appealing to both expert and occasional bakers, Sky High makes it possible to bake elegant, ornate, and professional-looking cakes within the comfort of the simplest home kitchen. Each recipe is sure to turn heads at any party or special occasion, for even the most effortless cakes look spectacular in dramatic three-tier designs.

From old favorites like Boston Cream Pie and Triple Chocolate Fudge Cake to new inventions like Santa Fe Blue Cornmeal Cake with Caramel Cream and Dulce de Leche, Sky High is perfect for traditionalists and adventurers alike.

Introductory chapters offer a guided tour through different cake varieties, ingredients, and baking techniques, and a later chapter entitled Cakes with a World of Flavor presents innovative recipes that combine classic flavors like chocolate, lemon, and caramel with international imports like chai, rum, and ginger.
