COOKING / Courses & Dishes / Cakes
The ultimate cake bible and the first Americanized cookbook from the beloved television series—featuring more than 75 recipes for cakes, cupcakes, and other sweet treats from fan-favorite contestants.

The Big Book of Amazing Cakes brings the magic of The Great British Baking Show to your kitchen with easy-to-follow recipes for every shape, size, and delicious flavor of cake you can imagine. The 77 recipes (including gluten-free, sugar-free, and vegan options) in The Big Book of Amazing Cakes include a wide range of simple and spectacular desserts that will thrill longtime fans of GBBS and dessert devotees alike.

Whether you’re looking for a simple, low-effort cheesecake or gooey brownies, or you’re looking to flaunt your decorating skills with crowd-pleasers such as Flora’s Black Forest Gateau, Selasi’s Three-tiered Floral Cake, or Rahul’s Edible Rock Garden Cake, you’ll find recipes that span 10 years of GBBS episodes (with each recipe noting which baker and which season it comes from) as well as additional recipes developed especially for Amazing Cakes by the behind-the-scenes team in the tent. Amazing Cakes is chock full of decorating tips, and many recipes show how a single batter recipe can be riffed upon to create cakes with a myriad of decorations, shapes, and sizes. With clear, easy-to-follow instructions (and exclusive on-set photography from the newest season), readers will feel prepared to create visually stunning, decadent “bakes” that even Paul and Prue would declare absolute winners.

The first official GBBS cookbook with recipes fully converted for the American home baker, Amazing Cakes is the crash-course that every cake afficionado and GBBS fan needs for spectacular bakes, every time.

FIRST-EVER AMERICANIZATION: The previous cookbooks from The Great British Baking Show, despite being distributed in the United States, give only metric measurements, and only some include conversion charts. Amazing Cakes will be the first cookbook officially licensed from the series that uses Imperial/US measurements and conversions as the primary recipe format, satisfying the immense craving of the show’s American fans who want to recreate recipes from the series with easy, stress-free baking.

NETFLIX POWER TITLE: In each month since the show’s addition to Netflix in March 2018, it has consistently ranked within the top 75 viewed series on the platform. The show counted just under 10 million viewers when season 4 first aired on PBS in the U.S., and today it counts celebrities such as Taylor Swift, Queer Eye’s Fab Five, and Snoop Dogg among its fans. Amazing Cakes will be published in conjunction with the release of Collection 7 (Series 10) on Netflix in Fall 2019.

TIE-IN TO A FAN FAVORITE: With all UK seasons now on Netflix (and season 10 coming as Collection 7 in the Fall), the show has become a binge-able series with a cult following spanning all ages. This audience has been deprived of a US-friendly GBBS cookbook for years, and now Amazing Cakes will become a keepsake item in their kitchens for years to come. Featuring on-set photography from the upcoming season, as well as recipes from the entire span of the series, Amazing Cakes will be a must-have for fans who refer to the show as The Great British Baking Show “Therapy.”

SLEEK, UPMARKET PACKAGE: Our POB format will ensure a package that is as practical as it is covetable.

The Great British Baking Show is produced by Love Productions in the U.K. and airs on Netflix in the U.S.
