"When I bring one of my sweets into the room-whether at a wedding or an intimate dinner party-the expressions on peoples faces turn that celebration into a memory Ill never forget. Thats what baking should be."
Many people are coming to recognize the merits of eating organic ingredients, but the idea of "organic baked goods" may bring to mind food that is more boring than beautiful and delicious. But in Organic and Chic, custom cake baker Sarah Magid uses her background in jewelry and shoe design to create vibrantly colored, highly original, delicious organic cakes and other desserts that are perfect for all kinds of celebrations.
Filled with gorgeous photographs, Organic and Chic features recipes for delectable baked goods youll be excited to re-create and serve to family and friends, from modern floral cakes and cupcakes to rustic farmers-market sweets made with seasonal fruits:
Red Velvet Love Cake frosted with Vanilla Whipped Buttercream and garnished with edible flowers

Minty Strawberry Shortcakes, celebrating the bounty of the summer
Goldies, a tasty tribute to Americas favorite cream-filled sponge cake
Whether youre preparing some simple Double Ginger Cookies for a block party or bake sale, or experimenting with a rich and luscious dark chocolate birthday cake, you can be confident that youre serving desserts that are gorgeous and flavorful without resorting to fake, chemical-laden ingredients. Magid offers detailed step-by-step decorating instructions and enough inspiration to help even the most novice baker create bold cake-decorating effects, including eye-popping flowers, hand-sculpted leaves, and metallic-painted brushstrokes.
