Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing The book is absolutely beautiful, sadly, the recipes don't work. Even tough my edition came with a little correction card, there are still some mistakes. The hot milk cake doesn't rise, the buttercream needed a lot less butter and, contrary to what what written, doesn't defrost well. Strangely, for a small scale cake book, all their essential (fillings and icings) are large scale. If at first I was ready to believe I had no culinary talent, other reviews on other websites led me to believe this book was printed before being tested.
