The only caution I would give is that so far the cakes we have made have been quite expensive to make... although admittedly we have used fresh fruit out of season. If you are cooking on a budget then don't go near this book, but if that is not an issue, and you enjoy baking, enjoy trying new things then go for it... you shouldn't be disappointed.
I love the fact that you have a picture of each one so that you can see what your cake should look like! Yet there are no gratuitous photos of the author posing in a posh kitchen, or of scruffy-looking half-eaten buns on chipped crockery - both things really annoy me!
I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to make a cake that's a bit more special than an everyday Victoria sponge or chocolate sandwich cake, but not that's not as challenging or outrageous as some of the other baking books that have appeared recently (and will disappear to the charity shops just as quickly, I think.)
