Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Whimsical and creative decorating ideas abound in this easy baking book from Betty Crocker (a registered trademark of General Mills). Layer cakes, Bundt cakes, cheesecakes, cake pops, and more appear in seven chapters that include tempting photographs, easy-to-read instructions, nutrition facts, and "Sweet Tips" (e.g., what to do when you don't have enough cake pans). Like Karen Tack and Alan Richardson's Hello, Cupcake! and Anne Byrn's popular Cake Mix Doctor series, this book relies heavily on store-bought ingredients such as boxed cake mix and instant pudding. VERDICT This beginner-friendly cookbook keeps cake baking simple, allowing readers more time to decorate and celebrate. An excellent value.
