4.0 out of 5 stars Easy and simple but it tastes so good 20 Sep 2003
I borrowed this book from my library and if I can't find a copy may just resort to stealing it.
The recipies are varied and mostly simple and such a range. From simple butter cakes to elaborate horn shaped specialities I have cooked around twenty of these cakes to uniform approval. My daughter, aged eleven, can pick the book up, choose a recipe and then cook it, all I have to do is the washing up.
There are pictures on each page and to my surprise my results often look like them.
Its a good book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cakes, Tortes, and Gateaux of the World 27 Jan 2013
By Lucy Reynolds VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a truly varied cook book.
It really does contain recipes from all over the world, and most of them are yummy!

The recipes are laid out well, with a main picture of each dessert, and in many cases, additional step-by-step pictures showing how to achieve the techniques mention.
It's a fairly decadent book and won't help anyone's battle with the bulge! However, if like me, you are looking to add show-stopping desserts to your baking repertoire, then this is the book for you.
