The classic book that launched a thousand cupcakes.
Nigella Collection: a vibrant new look for Nigella’s classic cookery books.
'This is for those days or evenings when you want to usher a little something out of the kitchen that makes you thrill at the sheer pleasure you’ve conjured up.'
The classic baking bible by Nigella Lawson (‘Queen of the Kitchen’ – Observer Food Monthly). This is the book that helped the world rediscover the joys of baking and kick-started the cupcake revolution, from cake shops around the country to The Great British Bake Off.
