Best book ever!, 6 Sept. 2011
This is the best book I ever bought! Rose gives such a good explanation to every single detail important to make fantastic cakes and fillings. The base formulas help you to make the size cakes you want. Clear charts are always present true this book, to calculate yourself what you want to make.Every recipe is detailed and clear. The theoretic information is such a great value to understand the why's and the how's of cake making and baking. Rose even mentioned the 'cups', 'ounce' and 'metric', so where ever you live, you can use this book. I couldn't miss this book any longer, I would put it under my pillow to sleep with. I can imagine that for a home baker (hobby) it would seem difficult at first sight, but if you take some time to read it again and again, it such a pleasure to learn all about it. As a professional baker in Belgium, I learned alot about cakes bacause of this fantastic book. In our schools here, we do not learn much about all those kinds of cake and fillings. It really is a must have if you are a baker, cake decorator, and you want to serve quality cake to your clients! I tried alot recipes yet, and they all turned out great like they were supposed to be. (not like some books were you make the recipe and the result is a disaster according to the nice pictures next to the recipe) This book does not have lots of modern pictures, but that gives me trust that it is a professional book and not for selling the pictures only. Thank you Rose!!!
