Book Description

5 Mar 2013
In Sugar Baby, Gesine Bullock Prado took on sweets and confections. In Pie It Forward, she tackled pies. Now, in Bake It Like You Mean It, she turns her attention to cakes; but of course, these aren't your typical cakes, and Gesine presents these creations with her own signature twist and trademark humour. These are cakes that are beautiful on the outside and often on the inside. Some are simply covered in creamy, beautiful frostings and finished with gorgeous garnishes while others actually look like a chessboard when you cut into them; reveal rainbow layers; or offer other stunning surprises once you see what's inside. Get ready for Lemony Angel Food Cake with Strawberry Coulis, Inside Out Red Velvet Super Sponge, Walnut Coffee Cream Torte, Marble Pound Cake, German Chocolate Cake and more. Some easy and some more challenging, these are cake recipes suited for every occasion.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 6 Mar 2013
By J Mac
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I own more cook books than I can count and have become jaded by the lack of creativity and originality in many of the baking/cake books being published.
This book is a breath of fresh air! Not since Karen Krasne's 'extraordinary cakes' have I been as excited by a new publication.
This has innovative recipes and techniques that Inspire. The cakes are stunning and very different to the norm!Some recipes are challenging, however the instructions given are very clear with easy to follow steps with fantastic tips.
I have made the tirimusu cake and it tastes as fantastic as it looks.
A superb book. Thank you for making it available on the kindle, as I do not have any more space for another cook book! I only wish more baking books were available on the kindle for this reason.

4.0 out of 5 stars Something different 17 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There are several projects to try for the baking enthusiast - some recipes are quite easy whilst others require more attention. For me there could have been more photos but the look of the book in general is very good and there are some new techniques to try.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 5 April 2013
By Smurfy
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Very disappointed with this book. I had high hopes for it, but there is a real lack of photographs of the finished article and the photos that are there, are not very good.

2.0 out of 5 stars VERY EXPENSIVE TO BAKE 31 May 2013
Just bought this book and having looked at all the recipees I am quite disapointed. the book is american and some of the ingredients are clearly American but the most annoying part for me is how many eggs are used in each recipee. One cakle calls for 8 eggs for one part of the cake, 8 eggs for another part and 15, yes that is 15 egg whites for the buttercream. Another recipee needs a total of 7 eggs, 20 egg yolks and 5 egg whites. This is a hell of a lot of eggs for most of the recipees. I was hoping for a book that could be used to make a special cake but the cost of ingredients will make it not to be used very often. I have not tried to make any of the cakes yet but most of them have a lot of stages to them and cannot be made very quickly. I would say, definately not a book for a beginner but for anyone who likes a challenge, maybe, if you can afford the ingredients.
