Save your money and just get Baking with Passion so you are not deceived by the printer of these books, like I was.
The photographs are fabulous, the recipes are mouth-watering. The text is easy to read when you can't find your specs, instructions are clear and concise. I've made the most glamorous cake in the book for a supper party - the Chocolate Genoise Royale. I did my prep, read the instructions through to the end and got started. Just after popping the genoise sponge base in the oven I realised that I hadn't stirred in the melted butter - no matter, the sponge was perfect. I was concerned about the missing buttery moisture so I soaked my sponge base in cherry syrup diluted with Kirschwasser. I now have a beautifully impressive gateau to serve to friends & family, that was simple to bake and, apart from overnight setting time, very quick too.
Immodestly, I'm a very experienced cook but I would recommend this book to beginners too. There's a recipe for everyone in this inspiring well thought out book.
Grab an apron and go for it!
The instructions are informative clear and work
It gets down the basics for confident baking

There are some great recipes in here, for cakes and tarts too. It has most of the basics of baking in it, and clear instructions. Dan Lepard recipes never disappoint.Published on 17 Mar. 2014 by Kempy1979
If you are a very experienced baker you will like this book, I didn't, I did not like anything about it.Published on 30 Jun. 2013 by Redbird1
The first surprise you get when looking through this book is that quite a few of the recipes are not, in fact, for particularly ADVANCE cookers. Read morePublished on 10 Nov. 2010 by CYMODOCEA NODOSA
