    Jasenka is 100% correct! The pictures are seriously inaccurate

    Jasenka is 100% correct! The pictures are seriously inaccurate and some of the directions are totally unclear. Specifically, pages 536-537 -- "Glazed Chocolate Cream Cake". I had to call Williams-Sonoma to get clarity on the use of the butter. Next, they make the middle layer look like some dark beige mousse-like substance. Wrong. It's SERIOUSLY dark chocolate and is an extremely thin layer. Next, the so-called glaze barely covered the cake and they show it as dripping over the sides!

    This book is SERIOUSLY flawed ! Sure glad I didn't buy it with my own funds and that it was given to me, but I'll never bake anything out of it -- EVER !

    Great book of chocolate:)

    When I got the book I was delighted, great book with beautiful pictures and simple recipes. I couldn`t wait to try each of them. And then, I tried couple of them and realize that original picture is not even close to what came out when I made it , and of course, I have to change amount of ingredients, and whole baking procedure. The last recipe I made, was total disaster, but some how I was able to save it.<BR/>Today, I also tried something, but first baking sheet with cookies end up in trash, the second I manage to save. Recipes are not precise and in detail. I can`t say that recipes I tried aren`t tasty, but at the end that is not the recipe from book any more, it`s mine.<BR/>Jasenka
