5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute must for any keen cake maker! 1 Dec 2009
I bought this book as a gift for my daughter's birthday to encourage her to make her own sweet treats instead of buying shop manufactured cakes and biscuits which often contain additives. I was so impressed with the book, I bought another two, one for myself and one for a Christmas gift for a friend who I know loves to make cakes. This book has hundreds of recipes for cupcakes, scones, muffins, brownies, blondies, tray bakes and slab cakes, cookies, biscuits and confectionery as well as some interesting savoury muffins and pastries. There is nothing in this book which will not make you go "ooooh" and "aaaaaah" as your pour wistfully over the pages. The photography is so stunning, you can almost smell and taste the pictures; the only improvement would be "scatch and sniff"!
The recipes are easy to follow, and often show a number of flavour variations. The first chapter of the book goes over cake making techniques, ingredients, equipment and supplies as well as giving stock recipes for icings and frostings. Technical terms are explained so easily that my 13 year old could bake any recipe in this book, and my 5 year old nephew would have no trouble in following the recipe with me. There are some really good seasonal and festive recipes in this book as well as some great hand made gift ideas for confectionery and petit fours. It has plenty of recipes for chocaholics as well as hundreds of recipes which use all manner of dried fruits, nuts and seeds for those who want a "healthy" treat! If you have to bake for a school fete cake stall or church bazaar then this book is for you, and for all you car booters who like to bake on Saturday and sell on Sunday, you will make an absolute fortune with the recipes in this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Calorific but fantastic... 17 Dec 2010
By Alisha
This is a fantastic book, I highly recommend it. Having received one as a gift I ended up buying one for a friend who also loved it, every recipe has a photo to accompany it and there are variations given on each one as well. It really is great book to have in the kitchen. Enough said!

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and easy to follow 5 Jun 2011
Bought on a whim as I suddenly thought I'd try my hand at making some cakes for when we have visitors. Have owned the book for two days now and have made lemon butterfly cakes, queen cakes and coconut paradise slices already. All three recipes were easy to follow and use easily sourced ingredients. The photographs which accompany each recipe are also a true representation of the finished cakes. I really can't praise this book highly enough. Having made my first cakes in about twenty years, I can only say what a pity it is that I didn't come across this book sooner as I would never have purchased shop-bought cakes if I'd realised just how easy it is to make them with the right recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book 4 April 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Before I bought this book I read all the other reviews as I was going to buy a different book but it was sold before I managed to buy it, so being a bit disappointed and not knowing which book to buy I started to browse the other cupcake books and noticed this book had some glowing reviews, and it was cheaper than the original book I planned to buy, so I thought ok, I'll buy it as everyone who has purchased it only has good things to say about it.

I wasn't disappointed, the book is excellent, the recepies are so easy to follow and the pictures are a true representation of how your cake/biscuit or bun will look.....I have made several things including cupcakes, cake bars and biscuits, and there are loads more I'm planning to make. Everything I have made so far has been delicious and it has all turned out perfectly...my family are constantly begging me to make more goodies from the book. I don't even look at shop bought treats anymore! I'm so glad I bought this book now, and I'm going to buy another copy of it for my daughter...this book comes highly recommended, buy it, you won't be disappointed, I promise.
