Its "cheating" but....

by Gary P on Mar 21, 2013

Okay, a cake mix is not something you can get really excited about but this is also a reference book for those who don't have the time or experience to do it from scratch. You can make most anything from these simple how-to recipes. Full of baking and decorating tips, its a very practical book. I would recommend it for first time cake bakers as well as a reference for mid-level bakers.


Inovative Great Find

by Booklette on Jul 12, 2012

I was impressed with the size and content of this cookbook. It was better than I had imagined. It also had many unique ideas for blending frig and pantry items with boxed cake mixes, which made for some spectacular creations. It was a great find.

Haven't used it yet but have used one of the other of the 4 I ordered and loved the results. I am sure this will be a favorite as soon as there is a need.

Excellent book

by Glimmer on Jun 10, 2010

I borrowed the book from the library & had to have it after trying one recipe! I?ve given 3 books as gifts with happy results. These recipes move a mundane box mix into over-the-top desserts and home made tasting treats. My husband is well traveled and pronounced Kathy?s Cinnamon Breakfast Cake pg 257, as the best coffee cake he?s ever eaten. Anywhere. I?ve shared this recipe with several people who have tried it and agreed. The authors? down to earth way of writing makes the book an enjoyable read. She provides lists of the most portable cakes & desserts, how to exchange one pan size for another, and other helpful tips and tricks. I would recommend this book for the newly-wed, Mom?s busy with kids, and anyone needing to take a dessert to a gathering. This is the list I gave my recipients, and it makes a really cute bookmark if you are so inclined. Chocolate Pistachio Cake pg 40 Chocolate Marble Gooey Butter Cake pg 244 ***Kathy?s Cinnamon Breakfast Cake pg 257 Best coffee cake ever!! (glaze is better with a bit of butter) Chocolate Mocha Chewies pg 337 Nina?s Strawberry Crisp pg 364 Chocolate Punch Bowl Cake pg 368 Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake pg 50 .
