Rosanne Hewitt-Cromwell has been locked in a love affair with cake and baking for as long as she can remember, from the early days listening as her mam sang happily in the kitchen, delicious sweet smells filling the house, right up to today, standing in her very own kitchen singing and baking more treats than her poor husband can eat.

Some favourites from Rosanne's popular baking blog,, are included here alongside a whole host of new recipes from childhood memories and experiments in her kitchen. From the ever-popular mint-crisp pie, almond fingers and upside-down cake, to her addictive rocky road, there really is something to suit all tastes. Rosanne even dedicates a chapter to Christmas baking, her favourite time of year.
Peppered throughout with helpful hints and strolls down memory lane, this is much more than a cookbook.

'The book is a sugary delight: colourful, girly and nostalgic. The recipes are special enough to be a lovely treat but not so daunting that the book will live on a shelf and never have the joy of becoming flour-speckled and dog-eared. It has a host of lovely recipes for the sort of old-fashioned cake that makes you want to cut a big gooey slice and settle down for a cosy afternoon with friends and a big mug of tea'
