The current passion for baking shows no signs of waning and this gorgeous-looking notebook is the ideal place to keep all your favourite recipes, whether passed down through generations or from friend to friend, or copied down from a magazine. In addition, an experienced baker may taste a new concoction in a patisserie or café and be inspired to try to re-create the combination of flavors at home. This is the place to record the results. The practical wire-bound notebook is separated into eight sections, with convenient tabs for easy navigation. It begins with a really useful section on basic ingredients and essential equipment and techniques, which describes in simple terms the difference between soft brown and Demerara sugar, beating and folding in, baking sheets and sandwich tins. Die-hard bakers will use this as a handy checklist, while those who are better versed in eating cake than baking it will find the straightforward advice invaluable. There is also handy space for you to make your own notes and shopping lists. Each of the following sections - Cake-Tin Cakes, Everyday Cakes, Little Cakes, Posh Cakes, Fancies & Frivolities and Celebration Cakes - offers two mouth-watering recipes to get you started. Then follows a series of prettily patterned blank pages for you to write out your own recipes, notes, ideas and experiments.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from meh I realize it's a notebook, but it insinuates there are recipes too. There are 12 recipes. The "tips" are basic and common knowledge. Not worth $5 unless you desperately need to add something to get free shipping. My favourite part is the binding which reminds me of my grandmother's old address book.

Editorial Reviews

"This is a nice way to keep â?¿ favorite cake recipes separate and handy. This would also be perfect for experimenting with your own recipes and there is plenty of room to take notes on what works and what does not work. I also like the other features such as the recipes, baking basics, and tabs. This really is a great book for new and experienced bakers." â?? Cake Mom
