My Review

I love the layout of this cookbook! It has beautiful photos that illustrate what the finished product should look like. Some have the recipes have illustrated steps as well.

The cookbook is divided into these sections:

  • snacking cakes
  • layer cakes, cupcakes & other party cakes
  • cool & creamy cakes
  • fruit cakes
  • showstoppers & special-occasion cakes
 I had been looking for some good from scratch cake recipes and I have found them here. There are illustrated instructions on how to frost a cake. The recipe for Southern Devil's Food Cake looks divine...I cannot wait to try it. And I'm all over the four-layer cake with raspberry whipped cream and mixed berries. And the chocolate mousse layer cake has some excellent decorating ideas.

Let's face it, I'm a cookbook junkie and this cookbook is an excellent addition to my collection and more than fulfills my fix! I'm sold! Be sure to pick up a copy of this cookbook!
