5.0 out of 5 stars oldie but goodie, 9 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I already I had a copy of this book which I have been using for years for my basic cake recipes. Bought two more copies (a spare for me for when mine eventually drops to bits/gets so stuck together you cant read it and one for my neice who has just started baking). Great book.


Robin Finds Christmas

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Forever a part of Christmas, 7 Nov 2013
This review is from: Robin Finds Christmas (Paperback)
I still have my copy of this book, from when I was a small child. It is absolutely THE BEST Christmas story, combining beautiful illustrations with the true message of the season. I have read it to my children (now grown up) every year. It will forever be an integral part of our family tradition. I recommend that everyone gets a copy.

This review is from: Sweet Studio (Hardcover)
I LOVE this book. The recipes are very complex and require skills, techniques and equipment that I dont yet possess. I am definitely going to master them though. I will start with the marshmallows cos they seem to be the most straightforward...only three seperate recipes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy display, 16 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This item is great for displaying cake pops. It is porcelain and looks classy unlike the cheap cardboard or plastic options. Easy to clean and nicely heavy so it doesnt tip over.

It is not however ideal for holding pops during the decotaing process as they are placed in at angles rather than straight.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant!, 6 Mar 2013

An absolutely fantastic book. Any poetry student should have a copy of this. It takes you through all the symbols used in poetry throughout the centuries and tells you why and how their meanings developed. As I am returning to literary study after a long break, I am finding this book invaluable.

This review is from: Samarkand (Paperback)
I bought this volume after reading a poem by Kate Clanchy in an anthology. The poetry is ok, though not the best i've read- some poems are definitely good though. However, for personal reasons, this book will always be special.

3.0 out of 5 stars Can't complain about Coleridge, 6 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Obviously the poetry is fantastic, but the formatting of this volume is atrocious. You will need to persevere but if you do you will be rewarded with some of the greatest verse in the English Language. A couple of warnings. The contents pages "stick" and take a long time to load. For some reason my kindle doesnt want to take me to the beginning of the book. The notes are great and very helpful (as are the introductions at the start of each poem) but unfortunately because of the formatting, the notes cut through some lines of verse (particularly confusing in the Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner) and can confuse the reader. Please please sort out the formatting issues and I will happily change this review to 5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars sufficient difficulty at the right price., 15 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This kit was bought as a present for a post graduate of aeronautical engineering. It provided him with hours of fun at a price that didn't break the banl. Sufficiently complex to present a challenge but not too detailed to be frustrating. I haven't seen the finished item yet but he assures me that it looks good.

This is a great silicone ice cube tray, perfect for the geek or child in your life. I ordered this item to use as a mould for some cakes I was making. Though a little deeper than the moulds I usually use, they worked perfectly. I was so impressed that I also ordered the batman ones. I can highly recommend these and hope that further superhero designs will be added to the collection.
