This review is from: Rose's Heavenly Cakes (Hardcover)
I've been aware of Rose Levy Beranbaum recipes books for a few years but decided it was time to try for myself her cakes. I was delighted with the results I achieved with every recipe I've baked not to mention the delight of the consumers. I found her introduction most useful also her tips for every recipe and the methods she employs for each cake. It did take me a little while to get use to the way she lays out the stages in mixing the cakes and icings.
There are a couple of things to take into account when embarking on baking one of these recipes
1) is the time the icings in many of the recipes can take to put together however the results have been well worth it.
2) these cake are mostly idea for a large gathering...they are like to much of American 'Big'.
3) If your concerned as to your waist line or sugar levels I would hand out a health warning.
Having said that if you love a challenge and a love of baking then this book is a must.
