Take a glimpse into the photography and sweet treats from my cookbook Sweet Envy: Deceptively Easy Desserts, Designed to Steal the Show.
There's no denying that people who love to bake simply do it for the joy of baking. But let's be honest, many of us also want to impress with our baked goods. Those endless hours covered in flour and butter, hunched over a cake with a piping bag, all become worthwhile when you hear the gasps of your friends and family. "My God, this chocolate cake is to-die-for!" While all these things are compliments, what you've really achieved is Sweet Envy.
