I have a number of Mary Berry books and this is the best! The depth of knowledge shared on technical aspects of presenting various cakes/desserts is invaluable. Each recipe comes with detailed pictures and tips on how to achieve the various designs and creations. From my large extensive collection of cake and dessert books this has become my "go to guide"!

Mary Berry does not disappoint with this new book with clear instructions and advice on the step by step process to achieve beautiful results.
Having used many of her books over a number of years I know that results are guaranteed with her simple, down to earth approach.

As a keen fan of Mary Berry's books I ordered this but was extremely disappointed to discover when it arrived that it was just a reissue of a book first published in 1991. Things have changed a lot in 17 years and the recipes in this book were SO 1990s. Who makes Chocolate Cream Pie or Custard Cream Pie nowadays ? Do you really want to use 2lb of ricotta cheese plus 7 oz of full fat cheese as part of the filling for something called Cannoli cake? Lemon Tartufo looks like one of those preprepared desserts in a Chinese or Indian restaurant. There should have been some indication somewhere that these recipes were so horribly old fashioned.

There is an ice cream recipe in here that makes you friends. You don't need anything except a whisk for it. There are other recipes that when made you have a hard time convincing people that you have actually made it. You have to show them the recipe for them to believe.

A very good book if you are into simple to make desserts, that look so delicious and taste wonderful. Can't go wrong with Mary Berry - no pretensions just good common sense
