This week's CakeBook book is a slim volume in The Edible Series, Cake: A Global History by Nicola Humble. Covering everything from general history and culture to symbolism and literary relevance, the book manages to pack a lot into 127 pages. This is one I re-read at least once a year, and is a copy that I particularly cherish. Not just for the subject matter, but also for that fact that I once ran into Amy Sedaris while carrying this book and convinced her to sign it . . .
