5.0 out of 5 stars Something for everyone, 8 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The lay out of this book is great with mostly one recipe to a page and beautifully photographed throughout. The recipes are easy to follow and well laid out. There are some recipes that are very familiar but others that I'm excited to try out. Whilst this is an Australian publication the ingredients are given in imperial and metric units (I don't get on well with American cup measures). As I do a lot of markets and festivals these recipes will make a great addition to my menu.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazingly fast service, 6 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was searching for a pasta wheel cutter for cutting shaped biscuits and found this, ordered it one day and received it the next! Fantastic! How did internet shopping get this good?! I had to use it straight away and - better yet - the item is exactly what I wanted with a wooden handle of exactly the right length to give optimum control and it is so easy to manoeuvre round intricately shaped cookies. The wheel cog leaves a nice design in the dough as well. Perfect!

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Nothing new here. I would have liked a few more recipes that I hadn't seen before and a little innovation given that it was put together by Good Housekeeping. This is not a keeper I'm afraid.

These are a perfectly adequate substitute for Dyson DC01 filters and as a pack of 8 these are good value too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great addition to my kitchen, 29 April 2012

I sought this out after a cookery course and have used it for sieving ground almonds and icing in preparation for french macarons. I found it sat easily on top of my large mixing bowl but it is also useful when sifting onto a piece of parchment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this book, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've become a bit of a collector of baking books and I thought I might be stepping outside my comfort zone when I ordered this but my-o-my! what a fantastic collection of delights. The recipes are thorough and provide details of all equipment needed as well as a comprehensive list of ingredients. The pictures are wonderful and inspirational. The one thing lacking is in the timing for each recipe and I think this could have been included in a box adjacent to the ingredients but overall I am extremely satisfied with this and look forward to trying out many of the recipes.

I have bought several items from this seller and have always received excellent service. I have used these cutters in my sugarcraft class and find them very easy to use and they produce sharp results every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Find, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a great little book! I have tried the raspberry and blood orange macarons, madeleines and whoopie pie recipes so far. The recipes are easy to follow and the results are exactly as expected. Great pictures throughout the book. All in all an excellent addition to my bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Recommended Buy, 29 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a fantastic little book. I have used this for many cake toppers. I have a little experience of modelling but this book is so easy to follow that it is my go-to book for inspiration. My confidence has increased leaps and bounds since I bought this book. The characters can easily be adapted to your own theme and there are some excellent tips. I would recommend this book to all users.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use, great results, 28 Jan. 2012

Found this very easy to use. With a little cake release used to grease the pan the individual cakes came out with very little effort. Have previously avoided silicone moulds but am now a convert. Easy to store and no more worrying about scratching the pans.
