You think you will get a lovely book, and it is a lovely book, the recipes just does not work. I am very disappointed.

A recipe in this book guarantied the worst result I have ever taken out of the oven. It never raised, and I had to throw it out in the end. I tried to make the Lavender, lemon & honey cake. It was very expensive to make. with all the honey, butter and almonds, and when I poured it into the form I felt it would not be good, and alas it was a catastrophe.
I was so angry, it has taken me some time to write the Review. I would have gone overboard had it written it right away.
Amber Rose's book Love Bake Nourish is fraud. And I do not believe for a minute that the cakes in the book reflects the result from the recipes.
I do not get all the stars. They were not there when I had made my cake. I think the stars are fake too. The ones that have actually tried to make the cakes,writes the same thing as I experienced, and I guess, if you can stage a book like that, with a story about a fabulous, great looking baker with a beautiful name, you can fake a lot of stars if you put your mind to it. It will sell a lot of books. The stars sold the book to me. I thought that so many people loving it must be right. They were not. Se what those who did make the cakes, wrote.
"Nice book to look at, inspirational, but since receiving a few weeks ago I have tried maybe 7or 8 of the ideas and they either don't work or taste is not great, or cakes remain flat and heavy & before anyone thinks its my cooking.... I can bake and cook very well thank you!!
"I am an experienced baker but every recipe I tried was too "soggy", but did taste ok eventually when eaten."
