2.0 out of 5 stars VERY EXPENSIVE TO BAKE, 31 May 2013
This review is from: Bake It Like You Mean It (Hardcover)
Just bought this book and having looked at all the recipees I am quite disapointed. the book is american and some of the ingredients are clearly American but the most annoying part for me is how many eggs are used in each recipee. One cakle calls for 8 eggs for one part of the cake, 8 eggs for another part and 15, yes that is 15 egg whites for the buttercream. Another recipee needs a total of 7 eggs, 20 egg yolks and 5 egg whites. This is a hell of a lot of eggs for most of the recipees. I was hoping for a book that could be used to make a special cake but the cost of ingredients will make it not to be used very often. I have not tried to make any of the cakes yet but most of them have a lot of stages to them and cannot be made very quickly. I would say, definately not a book for a beginner but for anyone who likes a challenge, maybe, if you can afford the ingredients.
