Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I already had Rachel Allen's 'Bake' so kind of knew what to expect with Cake. Tons of great recipes in here and I like the ordering done this time. Various chapters from easy or quick to more difficult recipes, which I don't dare venture onto yet!
Unfortunately the problem for me, as with her previous 'Bake' book is the lack of pictures. There are a few in there but the majority of recipes don't have a picture and for a more novice baker like myself, this is especially frustrating as I'm unsure of what my bake should be looking like!
I have tried a couple of the recipes, the Bakewell cake near the front was especially tasty (and it had a picture!) and was easy for me to bake. I will undoubtedly try more of the recipes, probably in the easy and quick sections!
