      Very helpful



      a fab baking book for beginners and experts!

      As a keen baker, when i picked up this book and flicked through it, i was instantly impressed and paid £9.99 from a local bookstore.

      Baking essentials:
      The book begins with a guide of basic baking essentials, including photographs and descriptions of various ingredients, such as sweetners, spices and fruits. This is useful especially when adapting reciepes, as you can find more readily available ingredients from the super market which will do the same job in teh cake recipe. The photographs are also useful, for identifying new ingredients.
      In this chapter, the book carefully descibes baking skills, such as layering, rolling and storing cakes. It is a very useful chapter for beginners as well as old-timers!

      The Cake Recipes:
      There are over 100 cake recipes in this book, each with easy to follow step by step instructions as well as freezing and storage guidlines for each. The majorty of the recipes are accompanied by a large colourful photograph, which is helpful when making the cakes!!

      Other recipes in the book:
      As well as the main recipes for the cakes, there are recipes for making icings, filllings and homemade decorations. This is useful when you cant buy a decoration from a supermarket, ort you wish to customise a cake. This chapter also includes a step by step guide for icing, which i found really useful!

      Additional information:
      The book is a favourite of mine, and i have found it really useful especially for the step by step technique of decorating and icing. The instructions are easy to follow and the photographs are wonderful!
      In addition, there is a 'what went wrong' guide, which helps you rectify mistakes in future baking!

      I love this book, it really does have everything you need to make loveley cakes for all the family, which are all easily customised to suit individual needs. At almost £10 it was a little pricey, but i feel i definitley got my money's worth and it is a guide i regularly refer to for old and new ideas!

      Hope this review is helpful, and enjoy!
