4.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 7 Jan 2013
I'll be honest - i have yet to make anything from this book. Therefore I can't comment on the technical merit of the recipes. What the book does serve as is a great source of inspiration due to it's rather different take on the seemingly ubiquitous cupcake. I have previously played around with after eights and ferrero rocher in cupcakes and this has certainly given me some new ideas. Don't get me wrong the book is very American and so A) some of the recipes do push the boundaries of taste (in every sense) and B) you will have to adapt as some of the ingredients are only going to be available in specialist stores. This being said, it's a great gift for the cupcake baker who has everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars small but perfectly formed, 18 Jan 2008
This review is from: Brownies (Hardcover)
This is really quite a slim little volume, so it may not seem the best value compared to some baking books out there, but it's a brilliant little book. There are certainly enough recipes in here to make a surprising variety of brownies and blondies, my favourites are the mint ones! What's more the recipes are nice and simple and come out really well.
Also the small size is great on the kitchen counter as it takes up so little room. I maybe wouldn't bother if you already have The Divine Chocolate book (by the same author) as it contains several brownie recipes, but this book is perfect for the beginner or brownie lover.
