Lauren and Rachel Finch
Who are the authors? Lauren and Rachel Finch know their cakes. These talented twin sisters are the founders of the popular Finch Bakery shop, based in Lancashire, where they spread their love of all things sugar daily, selling a selection of bespoke cakes and tantalising treats. Now, with the support of a dedicated fan base and huge social media following, they are publishing their first cookbook, Finch Bakery, to help readers replicate their favourite showstoppers at home.
What’s it about? Regulars of the Finch Bakery will already be familiar with the delicious cakes and famous cake jars on offer in store. But if you’ve ever wondered whether it might be possible to create something similar from scratch for your next birthday celebration, look no further than this extensive cookbook. From piping to icing, filling to decorating, there are no shortage of easy-to-follow, step-by-step recipes to help build your next sweet creation.

The recipes for their cake jars are perfect for using up leftover cake cut-offs, and each cake recipe comes with corresponding cupcake and cake jar conversions.
