    Great Cookbook for intermediate cooks

    The photos are great because they show what the things look like before they decoorate them so you know you are okay. It has really good and simple easy to follow instructions on how to create the decorations and garnishes for all of the recipes. It is a great book at a reasonable price.

    I Also Recommend:

    Good Housekeeping Illustrated Book of Desserts and Excellent source of recipes for the somewhat expererienced baker

    The wide variety of dessert possibilities is what drew me to this book. Although it is definitely not for the beginning baker or cake decorator. It's step by step instructions will help you prepare a dessert that will be the talk (positive) of any get together.
    Some of the basic things, like how to check a cheesecake to see if its ready to take out of the oven are missing on the individual recipes. And as I said some of the decorating ideas are a step above the beginner.
    But try the Prailine Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe ... It alone is worth the cost of the book, (OH and the sour cherry pie is delicious!).

    A MUST HAVE

    This book is a must have for everyone who enjoys desserts. Every receipe has a picture so you know what the end result SHOULD be. It also illustrates more difficult techniques, garnishes, (veggie, fruit and chocolate) and a helpful information section of terms and basics. I can't wait to get Volume II.
