Stephanie Crookston

Since opening her shop on Manhattan’s East Side four years ago, Crookston has become the Andy Warhol of cakedom. She has fashioned more than 4,000 cakes in shapes ranging from portraits to pop art sneakers for clients from Dick Clark to David Hartman. This 136-page book tells novices how to bake an edible baseball mitt, Big Mac or T-shirt. A bonus is the heretofore secret recipe for Crookston’s moist chocolate cake.
