5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable techniques shared 27 Aug 2010
I have a number of Mary Berry books and this is the best! The depth of knowledge shared on technical aspects of presenting various cakes/desserts is invaluable. Each recipe comes with detailed pictures and tips on how to achieve the various designs and creations. From my large extensive collection of cake and dessert books this has become my "go to guide"!

1.0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment 18 Nov 2008
As a keen fan of Mary Berry's books I ordered this but was extremely disappointed to discover when it arrived that it was just a reissue of a book first published in 1991. Things have changed a lot in 17 years and the recipes in this book were SO 1990s. Who makes Chocolate Cream Pie or Custard Cream Pie nowadays ? Do you really want to use 2lb of ricotta cheese plus 7 oz of full fat cheese as part of the filling for something called Cannoli cake? Lemon Tartufo looks like one of those preprepared desserts in a Chinese or Indian restaurant. There should have been some indication somewhere that these recipes were so horribly old fashioned.
