This review is from: Martha Stewart's Cupcakes (Paperback)
This book was a gift! The recipes are great. Some of them will challenge my decorating skills but the carrot ones were gorgeous and red velvet ones look pretty good to. Measuring Cups are easy to get hold of and the fact that this is American is not a problem. What a great gift to have - I cannot wait to make the little lamb cupcakes!!! I have several cupcake books and was a little daunted when I first got it but having started to use it the instructions are easy to follow and not too involved. Still not worked out what cake flour is but will ask the transatlantic family to translate for me. I would thoroughly recommend this book for bakers.

Hello, thanks for your review. It was helpfull as I'm going to buy this book.
As for your question on what is cake flour, it is flour type 55 (extra thin), and sometimes it already comes with yeast. I usually check the ingredients on the pack when I'm buying the flour.

No, cake flour is a bleached, finely milled, low protein (6-8%) flour. Flour type 55 is DEFINITELY not cake flour, but a stronger flour used to make pastries. Cake flour is not available in Europe, but can be approximated by adding a bit of maizena to the plain flour. It does not contain any rising agents or salt.
