5.0 out of 5 stars Not for the faint-hearted!, 12 Feb 2007
This review is from: The Magnolia Bakery Cookbook: Old-Fashioned Recipes from New York's Sweetest Bakery (Hardcover)
I bought both this book and the follow-up ("More from Magnolia") as a Christmas present to myself, and I haven't stopped baking since! The recipes are very easy to follow and once you get the hang of things it's really fun to mix and match - I've taken to combining recipes from both books to get the results I want. Apple cake (from book two) frosted with Caramel Cream Cheese Icing (from book one) was a huge hit at my boyfriend's birthday party.

It's definitely not for those on a diet - I was initially shocked at the amount of butter and sugar each recipe calls for - but if old-fashioned American baking is what you crave, then this is the book for you!
