About the book – Delia’s Cakes

Delia’s Book of Cakes was first published in 1977 and such is the staying power of this 35-year-old phenomenon, it has never been out of print.

Now, to celebrate its success, the book has undergone a complete contemporary makeover and the revised 2013 version is simply called Delia’s Cakes.
