Baking Out Loud: Fun Deserts with Big Flavors
By Hedy Goldsmith, $27.50, www.hedygoldsmith.com
If you’ve swooned over dessert at Michael’s Genuine Food and Drink in Miami’s Design District, you have already tasted Hedy Goldsmith’s sweet creative marvels. These big-flavor desserts are reminiscent of childhood sweets but are updated (with a sense of humor) for contemporary palates, such as Red Velvet Twinks — a riff on Twinkies — that combines chocolate cake with a cream cheese and tangy goat cheese filling. The 80 whimsical and inventive recipes include cookies, bars, pies, cakes, tarts, custards, and ice creams.
