Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty I received this book as a gift and it is such a beautiful book. I've been to their shop in Toronto and it is equally as pretty. I've tried their lemon cake recipe and it's definitely my favourite lemon cake recipe.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful book! Beautiful food styling, pretty book, almost every recipe has a photo. Enjoyed the intro written for every recipe and the overall tips section. However, I decided that I would be unlikely to make half the recipes in this book due to the time commitment involved.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful Book This is a beautiful book with some delicious recipes - the banana cake is incredible. However, there are some misses as well - I made the lemon mini cupcakes and I believe there must be a misprint as the recipe produced far more than 24 "mini" cupcakes, as it said it would. Also, the bake time it called for was 20 minutes, however after 10 minutes mine were already burning (I have an oven thermometer and it was heated to the correct temperature, as per the recipe.) The only thing I can think of was that the recipe is intended for standard sized cupcakes, not mini. I would also have appreciated the inclusion of metric weights in all the recipes.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from MEH... The cook book is beautiful but the recipes had me underwhelmed. I was hoping for so much more with this book as I am huge fan of the cakes made by the store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful, delicious, but I need more Great delicious recipes, beautiful photos (my 3rd loves to 'read' this for bedtime) but I wish they would have added some 'tips' to helping source some of the harder ingredients to come by, ie Gianduja ! I bought the book specifically for that cake and cannot seem to locate its main ingredient anywhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous! The french macarons recipe already makes the book worth the purchase. The result was the perfect consistency for a french macaron. Also tried the brownies, chocolate chip cookies and a fruit tart, all great. By far the best baked goods cookbook to date

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Move over Martha! I thought I had enough baking cookbooks, NOT! I have sticky notes all over to mark must try recipes, including Sticky Toffee Pudding. You will eat up the book with your eyes first, each recipe is beautifully styled and photographed. If you like this book, you must try the Duchess Bake Shop book (Justin Trudeau's favourite bakery in Edmonton).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful gift for any baker on your Christmas list. This bakery book is one of the most beautiful cook books I have ever picked up. The photographs are amazing and will leave you wanting to make every picture you flip through. The format and vintage feel are very similar to the book "Butter" (one of my all time faves) with a few more modern splashes thrown in. Nice size, perfect for the kitchen. I've made the chewy ginger cookies, salted almond torte, and the pecan caramel Churchill squares, all were winners and recipes that I would make again. There are pages of cupcakes that I could do without and pages of macarons that I could also skip over but really there are so many other recipes that feel fresh and unique enough to make the book worth the buy.
