Cakewalk: A Memoir

by Kate Moses

Who can resist a memoir written by a lover of sweets? Certainly not me!

In this somewhat disjointed memoir, Moses takes us through her crazy childhood and leads us to her much saner adulthood. Along the way, readers will savor the sweets that got Moses through the tough times; recipes are included.

From the brownies that impressed MFK Fischer to the cheesecake for her father, Moses tempts readers at every turn.

At times, this memoir is jumbled and annoying. But at other times, it is beautifully written and joyous in its celebration of sweets.

Not what I expected, but still worth reading.
