All Cakes Considered

Baking on the Radio
All Things Considered, the weekly two hour National Public Radio show, features Melissa Gray. Gray is the author of All Cakes Considered: A Year’s Worth of Weekly Recipes Tested, & Approved by the Staff of NPR’s All Things Considered.

On Mondays, Gray bakes a special cake for the NPR staff; the book is a collection of her special recipes, mentioned on air. Baking tips for 50 cakes come with fascinating-to-funny commentary on baking. Mouth-watering illustrations of each creation support the recipes. Listen to the story of the book on NPR.
