'Tis surely the season to bake, but like millions of us, you don't have time. Take heart and take Linda West Eckhardt's baking secrets into your kitchen. They're all in Cakes from Scratch in Half the Time and she promises that with her new, streamlined three-pronged method, perfected after "being hip-deep in cake batter for two years," you'll be baking cupcakes in 10 minutes and layer cakes in 15. A bonanza for the home baker, from elegant Framboise-soaked GÅ½noise with Lemon Buttercream to elemental Brown Sugar Loaf Cake just think what you can do with all the extra minutes you'll save!
