50 Deliciously Twisted Treats from the Sweetest Little Food Cart on the Planet by Kir Jensen, with Danielle Centoni (Hardcover—2012)
This covetable cookbook is a greatest-hits collection from The Sugar Cube, a tiny pink food cart in Portland, Oregon that is thronged daily by hungry hordes craving voluptuous sweets intensified with a spike of booze, a lick of sea salt, or a "whoop" of whipped cream. Sugar Cube founder and baker Kir Jensen left the fine-dining pastry track to sell her handmade treats on the street. Recipes for 50 of Kir's most enticing cupcakes, cookies, tarts, muffins, sips, and candies are made more irresistible (if possible!) by 32 delicious colour photographs by Lisa Warninger. Sassy headnotes and illustrations that resemble vintage tattoos liven up this singular boutique baking book.
