    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't be fooled by the cover I'm afraid of trying a third recipe in fear that it'll be disappointing and not edible, again. Often there's no indication of how long to beat certain ingredients together, or if to use an electric mixer or just a whisk or just mix. One recipe lacked taste, and the other had one flavour that was too pronounced. I am not a novice baker so I can confidently say that any other recipe I try from this book will be a waste of time and ingredients. Won't go back to it, but it looks pretty on my bookshelf.
