1.0 out of 5 stars Awful - did they even test the recipes?, 26 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gorgeous photography and delicious-sounding recipes can't mask the fact that they just don't seem to work. I've tried two recipes from this book, and both have been a disaster. The Espresso Bourbon Cake was supposed to take 28-35 minutes to bake, but was still underdone in the middle at 60 minutes. Eventually took it out - and the middle was soft and the outsides dry. Tasted just like a chocolate cake - couldn't even taste the coffee or whiskey. Then made the apple bourbon cake. Far too much to fit into a 20cm cake tin - but I gave it a try. And surely 3 golden delicious apples was too much. As I suspected, about a third of the cake ended up bubbling up over the sides of the tin. So much liquid was released by the apples that the cake was still completely wet at 70 minutes in. The book is a waste of money - and it has wasted even more in ingredients and time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be careful, 11 Jan. 2013
This pie dish isn't small, it's tiny. Definitely an individual portion. Very disappointed, as it's virtually unusable. Also - the shipping costs were more than the dish itself. I ordered the large pie dish too, and shipping was also more than the dish. So be careful.
