If you have ever marvelled at a flawless slice of cherry pie in a television bake-off and wondered if you could re-create it at home, BraveTart is for you. Here are recipes for one-bowl Devil's Food Layer Cake, Blueberry Muffins, Glossy Fudge Brownies and even Parks's own recipes for re-creating popular supermarket treats! These meticulously tested, crystal-clear and innovative recipes bring a pastry chef's expertise to your kitchen.

Review quote

"Fans of American desserts need look no further than this book." -- Choice "This is not everyday baking - nor does it celebrate an everyday occasion - but the whisking of egg whites to make the marshmallow icing (inspiration for which I thank the ever-illuminating, ever-inspiring American baker-sleuth Stella Parks, author of the compendious BraveTart)..." -- Nigella Lawson - Observer Food Monthly
