Close to Perfection!,
This review is from: The Hummingbird Bakery Cake Days: Recipes to Make Every Day Special (Hardcover)There are two things you need to know about this book. Firstly, it is much better than "The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook" (although that offered cake nirvana in the shape of the scrumptious Brooklyn Blackout cake!) Secondly, it is almost a perfect cookery book, beautifully designed, contemporary and with some genuinely new twists for the jaded baker (Cola, Lemonade or Fizzy Orange Cupcakes flavoured with Sodastream syrups, anyone?)
Almost all of the recipes have full page photographs, simply styled and mouthwatering! For me, the biggest temptation was Courgette, Walnut and Cinammon Layer Cake which was completely delicious. The everyday loaf cakes are all recommended including the Walnut and Honey Loaf, Cardamon Loaf and Rhubarb and Almond Loaf.
I am not a great cheesecake maker but the Chocolate, Caramel and Hazelnut Cheesecake looked divine and tasted even better. Butterscotch Marshmallow Bars are as yummy as they sound!
The best cookery book of the year, so far!
