5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Cakes- These cakes really are gorgeous., 20 Feb. 2012
By 
This review is from: Gorgeous Cakes: Published in Association with You Magazine (Gorgeous Series) (Paperback)
I recieved the Gorgeous Cakes baking book by Annie Bell for my 12th birthday and love it to bits.

The recipes are delicious- especially the Lemon Cheesecake (my 16 year olf brother cannot stop demanding me to bake it!) and the White Chocolate Mousse Cake. Each recipe is layed out well- with clear instructions and ingredient lists plus a beautiful photograph and a brief description of the history of the recipe or some helpful tips on how to bake it.

There are recipies for cupcakes, layer cakes, mousses, swiss rolls, birthday cakes, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, Bonfire Night and Birthday cakes, Cheesecakes, low fat cakes... the list is endless. You pick up so many different skills with this book!

I must say the whole book is stunning. The colour scheme is very simple and neat and the photographs are amazing (however what I love about the photographs is that they are not far away from the truth at all- it's easy to achieve a beautiful cake like the ones Annie Bell shows.)

My one complaint is that some of the recipes are hard to do, such as the chocolate swiss roll (which just kept on crumbling and not forming properly.) However, don't let the difficulty of some of the recipies put you off- you can conquer the easy ones first, then move on to the harder ones.

Overall, this is a gorgeous book and I'd recommend it to anyone.
