5.0 out of 5 stars Wisteria Lane meets Sex in the City, 14 Feb 2006
By A Customer
This review is from: The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook: Old-Fashioned Recipes from New York's Sweetest Bakery (Hardcover)
An amazingly yummy book, just oozing with all the 'bad' stuff - sugar,butter,cream...but oh so very yummy! Real recipes for real indulgence. An absolute must.There are also lovely homey annecdotes and very useful practical advice.All the recipes are easy to follow and work perfectly. You are guaranteed to receive lavish compliments.
The only very minor downside is the measuring system if you dont have US cups, but you can get a conversion chart off the net for accuracy. Equally corn syrup isnt easily available in the UK. It can be substituted with a sugar syrup made with 1-1/4 cups sugar and 1/3 cup water, boiled together until syrupy. If your recipe calls for dark corn syrup, add a dash of dark treacle to the basic sugar syrup.
