4.0 out of 5 stars Good enough to eat!
This book is quite small but it certainly has some gorgeous inspiring photo's and some really nice recipes. Its not my favourite baking book but it certainly isn't my least favourite either. If you want a book that will squeeze neatly onto your bookshelf but has all of the traditional baking recipes then buy this book, Here is a recipe list so you guys know what you are...

3.0 out of 5 stars Small Cakes?
I don't regard these as recipes for 'small' cakes. The recipes are nothing special that you couldn't find in other recipe books.

This a really good book if you are interested in making good quality cakes. It cover larger cakes as well as modern cup cakes. The recipes are accurate and clear with precise detailed ingredients. It would make a great gift even fot those who just use cookery books for decoration on the coffee table!
