It was sometime around late 2011 that I first discovered Joy Wilson, aka Joy the Baker. How I came across her incredible site, I don’t remember, but what matters is that I have never forgotten her and recipes! The very first recipe I ever tried of Joy’s was her Angel Food Cake. Once you try it, you’ll never go back to the pitiful excuse of store-bought angel food cake!
When Homemade Decadence arrived, I simply sat and admired all the gorgeous photographs and tried to narrow down which recipes I wanted to try. Good luck with that! I want to try them all.
So far, I have made the Dirty Chai Lattes, Confetti Cookies, and Raspberry-Cream Cheese Brownies. All delicious! The only request I received was to skip the fresh raspberries on top of the brownies next time, because they were tart, but that could be since they aren’t in season…
I still have many, many recipes I want to try from Homemade Decadence, and look forward to getting in the kitchen with Joy the Baker’s cookbooks for years to come. Overall, I would give Homemade Decadence an “A+”, as it is more than a cookbook, but rather a celebration of stunning photography, humor, and all things baked.
