Baked Explorations is the second installment from the Brooklyn bakery, Baked. I find a lot of cookbooks that focus on baking to be very intimidating, however, these guys make it seem so easy. And it helps that the photography is so beautiful, too.

Make sure to watch their demonstration video on Amazon, too.
