Primrose Bakery is a way of life. From home-made croissants at breakfast, through fruity loaves at coffee time, to a slice of layer cake with afternoon tea, it has the whole day covered. And that's not forgetting their signature cupcakes with buttercream icing in every flavour, a delicious treat whatever the time of day. Since Martha and Lisa opened their first cake shop in Primrose Hill and then another one in Covent Garden, they have quickly become institutions for cake lovers. All their concoctions are deliciously unique, such as their seasonal raspberry and coconut cupcakes, their homemade granola and white chocolate cookies, and their show-stopping caramel triple layer cake. And their loyal customers make very eager recipe testers. "The Primrose Bakery Book" is pack-full of quirky charm. With more than 80 gorgeously illustrated recipes from simple iced biscuits to party cakes, it's the perfect baking handbook. Because Martha and Lisa first began their baking business in Lisa's home kitchen, they know the value of simple recipes that give great results. From staff-favourite recipes and hand-me-down cakes from their mums, to the secret of perfect icing and sugar decorations, this book is a mouth-watering window onto the year-round world of Primrose Bakery.
