Book Description

1 April 2009

There is no more fitting conclusion to a party or celebratory meal than a special cake. You’ll find the right recipe here, whatever event you are catering for: a child’s birthday party, a wedding reception or simply a well-earned cup of tea or coffee. Cakes deserve to be made on other occasions beside parties, too – so you’ll find hundreds of suggestions for plain, simple cakes that will provide a sweet boost at any time of any day.

From easy refrigerator cakes to elaborate creamy gateaux, and from cupcakes and muffins to sumptuous chocolate layer cakes, this book covers all styles of cake making. The recipes draw inspiration from around the world to provide you with a lifetime’s supply of treats. Included are authentic and exciting recipes for French croquenbouche and Italian panettone, for Austrian Sachertorte and Russian poppyseed cake, and novel creations that will delight your guests.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very dissappointing 29 Sep 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have tried 2 recipes now from this book and I think there must be errors in the recipes because both have turned out terrible. If you are thinking of buying this book....DON'T. I bake for a living so I know what I am doing and these recipes dont work!!

Years ago I bought a friend a wonderful book by Apple publishers called "cookies". I have hunted and hunted for a copy for myself but it is now out of print. You can imagine my delight when they released this series of books : 500 Cakes, 500 Cookies, etc etc. I immediately bought three different ones! Sadly the content is disappointing and altho' they've made an effort to include variations on each recipe, it's just dull dull dull. I might bake a few of these, but not unless I can find equivalent recipes in finer books.

Tried a several recipes in the book, they all taste great! Clearly, the recipes are tested. The book provided some basic recipes for cakes and suggested alternative ingredients so to modify the basics according to ones taste. Highly recommended.
