There are fewer things more comforting than the sweet smell of a cake baking in the oven. The Sweet Life showcases the beautiful and diverse range of Italian baking and sweet treats. From biscuits and every day cakes, to rustic tarts, decadent chocolate, cupcakes, fruity treats and amazing pastries, to incredible show stopping celebratory cakes there is a recipe here for every occasion. Some are traditional, others are modern day twists on the classics, but all are delicious and easy to make. Making something sweet gives pleasure to others, makes fond memories and is good for your soul.
