This is a fabulous book for anyone who loves to cook cakes.
I bought it as a colleague had a copy and there were too many scrumptious recipes to photocopy! So far all the results are just as per the pictures.

If you are only going to buy one book on how to make cupcakes, this is it. It covers the everyday cakes that I enjoy making and keeps it simple. I like the idea of having metric weights as well as the old imperial ones. Yes, this book ticks all of the boxes for me.

I found this book by chance and after having a look through I decided to buy it. Now that I have read it from cover to cover I am not so sure whether that was a wise decision but then again the price was quite low so it is not a disaster! It does have a lot of recipes of cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes, traybakes, etc, but some of them are so classic that most people will have the recipes in other cook books. I wish they were all original recipes..... Still I think that I will have fun trying out some of the recipes and even more fun eating them. As a matter of fact I am about to try out the Toffee Brownies because as I had some salted caramel sauce left over from a Gordon Ramsay recipe that I froze a while ago, I will use it for this recipe. I will update this review as I try out the recipes!

Update: The Toffee Brownies were great and my guests loved them but I have just made the Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins and there is a problem with this recipe as maybe they scaled it down forgetting to scale down the flour, so I was left with too little wet ingredients to too much dry ones. As I had sour cream left over I added it as well as some lemon juice but of course now the recipe won't be the same anymore. I have just taken them out of the oven and they look great but I don't know about the taste. As I have the same recipe in other books I had a look and indeed, this recipe has too much flour. Instead of 400g of flour you should only use 200g. The best thing is to check some other recipe as I think that usually they also use the juice of the lemon and not only the grated rind. I hate wasting ingredients...........................

My wife saw a copy of this and I bought it for her. Very good content and layout and she was very pleased.

But beware, we also brought the other books in the series, which were advertised on the back, and these were not so good. The layout and instructions were good but we thought they would contain basic straight forward recipes which they didn't. Tastes differ however so others may like them, but they were not as we expected.

I picked up a copy of this book through a book scheme run by my son's nursery, and I have to say I'm really pleasantly surprised! The recipes I've tried so far have been really good and delicious cake, there are tempting-looking pictures, easy instructions, and a section for general tips and tricks.

The book includes a good variety of cake recipes including sponges, cheesecake, brownies, and cupcakes... with many different flavours to try.

I made the chocolate biscuit cake for my colleagues and they loved it - I didn't have any left over to take home.
