Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This mammoth tome of teeth-rotting insanity is jam-packed with sugar, sweets, glucose and other wonderful things. Normally I would start to eat the pages in anticipation of getting my laughing gear around the cakes, but some of these recipes and ideas are so overblown and ridiculous I don't have a lot to say about them other. That feeling you get when reading the last couple of absurd sentences I've written? That's the feeling I get looking at some of these. I don't them any of these are 'normal'. Basically every nightmarish creation you couldn't dream up is included in these unholy pages. Some of them look tasty, some look like they would break every bone in your body, nevermind your teeth, while others look like they would sooner eat you. The pictures and words are very pretty and easy to follow, the charts are handy, but some of the cakes actually look quite sloppily made. Anyway, if you risk buying this I'm sure there is soemthing you can attempt. Be aware it may be the last thing you do. Australian Women? I thought giant spiders were the only thing keeping me from Oz, but now I have another reason.
