Praise for Baked Elements:
“From the writers of my favorite baking books of all time, a must-own for any baking enthusiast.” —Zoe Deschanel
“Lewis and Poliafito approach their recipes with enthusiasm and dedication.” —Boston Globe
“It’s official. I’m a goner. I love this cookbook. . . . While many restaurant pastry chefs around the country are out there pushing the envelope and falling off the cutting edge adding savory ingredients to deconstructed molecular gastronomy masterpieces, Matt Lewis and Renato Poliafito have delivered another collection of uniquely approachable and delicious baked creations to satisfy any craving.” —Austin Chronicle
“Nobody, nobody has a better grasp on the kinds of recipes that make people happily gum up the pages of a book with cookie dough or retire their grandmother’s famous recipe for cinnamon rolls (because it didn’t include pumpkin) than the Baked guys. This book is full of the stuff of American bakery-case dreams.” —Deb Perelman, creator of Smitten Kitchen
“Not a page goes by without some personal anecdote, tip, or bit of advice that makes every recipe feel personal, well-tested, and well-loved. The book itself is gorgeous, with drool-worthy photos and an elegant layout that makes finding old favorites easy and choosing new treats a breeze.” —Serious Eats

This is a wonderful cookbook! The aesthetics of the book are magnificent; it is beautiful to look at and it feels great to touch. Truly lovely. But the real beauty is in the amazing recipes. So often I have bought a pretty cookbook, only to be disappointed by poorly written recipes that didn't deliver good results. Well, Baked Elements did not disappoint one bit. I made the Antique Caramel Cake--as the kids would say, OMG. The crumb on the cake was perfect; the frosting just right, sweet, but not a bit cloying. Plus, this was a fun recipe to make. It may seem daunting for completely new bakers; but if they just follow the directions they will turn out gourmet products. Really! I can't wait to try another recipe!

Picked this up today. My rule of thumb is that if I leaf through the cookbook and don't see at least 7 out of 10 recipes that interest me or that I feel my family would like and that I could complete, then I don't buy! I really liked everything about this book. The comments were actually helpful. There were good cooking lessons too!
