I pre-ordered this title and "Exceptional Breads" last march, because I thought I would get some brand new and delicious recipes from Dan Lepard and his wonderful bakery to add to my collection (I already have his other two books, "The Handmade Loaf" and "Baking with Passion"), but I am very disappointed now. They arrived earlier today and I began to browse through them right away, just to discover that Quadrille Press has split "Baking with Passion" into these two books. Their entire contents (that is, the recipes, the photos and the additional comments) are exactly the same as in "Baking...". Quadrille should have informed this reproduction very clearly to potentioal readers/consumers at least on the cover, beneath the titles, as a sign of respect for us. There is not a single notice in small letters about this anywhere inside the books. Would it not be for this reason, I would give more stars. Save your money.

Like the previous reviewer, I ordered both 'baking with passion' and 'exceptional cakes' at the same time. I was quite annoyed until I tried the recipes and then I was blown away. We've tried almost half of the recipes from 'exceptional cakes' and without fail the instructions are clear, concise and the cakes are AMAZING. We are working our way through them all and haven't found one we didn't like!!! They might seems complicated and time consuming when you read the instructions but follow them step by step and the results are the same as the illustrations. I would definately recommend this book....and I just gave the other one to a friend!!!

I have had my copy of Baking with Passion for over decade now and I thought it might be good to get some other Dan Lepard titles. NOT HAPPY, when I ordered this and Exceptional Bread, they are ARE Part 1 and 2 of Baking with Passion.
Save your money and just get Baking with Passion so you are not deceived by the printer of these books, like I was.

I bought this bought the other week and couldn't wait to get baking!

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!

A good selection of cakes, all of which a delicious. The introductions are detailed and interesting and give you a good idea of what the cake will be like. The recipes are detailed, but always work very well.

I love this book! The recipes are great and the pictures are fab! I feel pictures in a cookery book are an absolute must and this book does not disappoint. Lovely recipes like Orange Cheesecake Brownies - delicious, and the Chocolate and Caramel Tart - yum!
