Book Warehouse in Vancouver, BC wrapped up 2016 with the incredibly talented baker and author TESSA HUFF, who recently released her new cookbook LAYERED: BAKING, BUILDING AND STYLING SPECTACULAR CAKES with Abrams Books. Her delightful sky-high treats have been praised by Emma Christensen, Recipe Editor for The Kitchn:


Tessa Huff has a way with cake. In her hands, butter, sugar, flour, and eggs become something more than mere ingredients in a recipe, and cake is elevated to art form. I could happily feast for days on just her photographs of these creations, but Tessa's companionable presence and quiet insistence throughout this book that I, too, can make these beauties for myself pulls me straight into the kitchen. Too pretty to eat? Nah. Grab a fork.

She also has been praised by Carrie Selman of The Cake Blog:


Stacked tall and frosted to perfection, Tessa elevates the art of layer cakes to new heights. With ingenious flavor combinations, foolproof recipes, and beautifully illustrated techniques, Tessa will have you whipping up drool-worthy, gourmet cakes at home. Layered is simply a treasure for every cake loving baker.

For the event at Book Wareshouse, she made a delicious red velvet peppermint cake for customers and signed copies of her new cookbook. Not a bad way to end the year!
