exactly what it said it was
on 26 October 2009
I had read about this book before ordering and the pre release info made it clear it was not about making cakes, but about the bakery and the people who work there and star in the show. It tells you all about the man himself "Duff" as well as all the staff, not just the main people featured it the show. If you watch Ace of Cakes then Duff said in the show that there are a lot of good cake books out there and it was not his intention to make another, but to give an insight into what makes them the company they are. I would say it does that very well.
I have enjoyed reading the book, and do not regret buying it, but do not buy it if you want an instruction manual. There are a lot of cakes to look at, and a large open out section in the middle with hundreds of very small pictures of their cakes, and they are small, but they get a lot in. There are also a few bigger pictures of cakes, and a lot of the staff working.
All in all, a good book if you love the programme.
