Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Rose Levy Beranbaum has been called the Diva of Desserts and "the most meticulous cook who ever lived," titles justly earned with her 1988 classic The Cake Bible. Beranbaum now returns with Rose's Heavenly Cakes, another delectable wonder. In its 512 pages, you will find recipes for sponge cakes and wedding cakes, almond cake and cupcakes, baby cakes and layer cakes -- indeed, every cake you can imagine. All these sinful treats are detailed in Rose's trademark step-by-step instructions.
From the Publisher
Beranbaum, specialist of baked goods that make people's eyes light up, tops her renowned The Cake Bible with an updated, modern collection of delicious confections. Bakers who have already dog-eared every page of that earlier book need not worry: this is far from a duplicate, with only the occasional repeat or adaptation. The recipes range from towering creations for weddings and other special events to baby cakes for bite-size indulgence, and from the simplest apple upside-down cake and yellow butter cupcakes to the elegant rose-shaped genoise and the stunning holiday pinecone cake. Beranbaum goes into great detail in her recipe instructions, yet still manages to keep the lengthy guidelines friendly, accessible and unintimidating, whether she is describing how to make a whipped ganache topping or beurre noisette, an integral part of her delicate array of financiers. Chocolate, fruit, cream, spun sugar: Beranbaum enlists the best ingredients (which she reviews in a helpful glossary) to create knockout cakes, and with her patient, meticulous description of the measurements and process, anyone with a good mixer and spatula, some time and determination will be able to turn out impressive sweet sensations. (Sept.) (Publishers Weekly, July 6, 2009)
Library Journal
When it was published in 1988, The Cake Bible won the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) cookbook of the year award for a good reason: the book is a superb guide to the art of cake baking. Beranbaum provides a solid introduction to all the ingredients, supplies, and techniques a baker needs, and her precise, detailed instructions ensure culinary success for both newbies and pros. With Rose's Heavenly Cakes, Beranbaum, who also has her own popular blog Real Baking with Rose (www.realbakingwithrose.com), expands the boundaries of her first title by delving into new cake frontiers (including oil-based cakes). Both are essential for all public library collections.

The Barnes & Noble Review
It's been 21 years since Rose Levy Beranbaum published The Cake Bible. With its meticulous instructions, measurements provided in both volume and weight, and detailed explanations of culinary chemistry, Beranbaum's Bible ratcheted up home baking from cozy Fannie Farmer and the quick and easy mix mentality to near professional levels with such extravagant eye-poppers as The Enchanted Forest -- a chocolate ganache-filled sponge roll studded with cocoa meringue sticks. Why this sequel? One may think there are only so many iterations of flour, butter, sugar, and eggs, but there'll never be a last word in baking. Bakers, like the rest of us, are always looking for the next new thing.

The recipes in Rose's Heavenly Cakes are a bit less fancy and buttercream-dependant than those in The Cake Bible, but no less tempting. There are confections with longer shelf lives, including a delicious, delicate Orange-Glow Chiffon Cake, and the spectacular Deep Chocolate Passion Wedding Cake, a multi-day project that features her new ultra-shiny chocolate lacquer glaze (made with gelatin).Several recipes are moistened with a syrup infusion after baking. These include English Gingerbread, rare for its inclusion of whole wheat flour, and an invitingly simple Lemon Poppy Seed–Sour Cream Bundt cake. Beranbaum has figured out how to keep the crumb topping crisp on her perfect Apple-Cinnamon Crumb Coffee Cake -- by letting the cake set before sprinkling it with a topping made with melted butter. Although Beranbaum has included more cakes made with oil (as opposed to just butter) and now specifies the percentage of cacao in each chocolate, she's unswayed by recent dietary trends toward whole grains or sugar substitutes such as agave nectar. In fact, one of the few things she doesn't explain in this irresistible collection is her adamant preference for bleached white flour -- but no doubt it's chemical. --Heller McAlpin

    A Culinary Master At her Best!

    Rose Levy Berenbaum's book is one of the best books that have been written when it comes to baking and cake decorating. I have stacks and stacks of cake decorating books on the side of my bed to help me prepare for my new venture in cake decorating and none compare to this one. She has a skill and craft that not even the best pastry chefs can compare to. She writes for you to learn. She writes for you to explore the world of baking in a way that no other person can explore it the way that you do. She write so that you can go on a special culinary journey one page at time. From chocolate, to lemon, to cheesecake, Rose Levy Berenbaum's book is a craft written like no other. She is a teacher, an author, and above all a culinary master there for all who need her to teach us all the tricks of the trade and master it as well as she does. Her book is beautifully written and and displayed and each recipe tests just as it says.

    Kudos to you Ms. Berenbaum for I am now one of your biggest fans, for your techniques and style have changed the way I cook and I am forever grateful!

    This cookbook is very easy to use. It makes it possible for an ordinary home cook to create extraordinary cakes. The variety of cakes in this cookbook is really extraordinary. I enjoyed not only the written information but also the photography!

    I read cookbooks the way others read mystery novels - cover to cover and absorbing bits of info in between. This cookbook is truly amazing - it covers everything from different ingredients, substitutions, the interesting background of the different cakes, people who made significant contributions to the creation of different confections - in short a melange of fascinating stuff. Rose Levy Beranbaum is truly a master of her craft. I recommend this cookbook to anyone who really wants to bake beautiful things that taste as good as they look! Easy to follow instructions, weights, measures, this cookbook takes away the intimidation factor so many of us feel when trying to walk in the somewhat flour-speckled shoes of the great bakers! Enjoy!!

    If you Can Only Have One Baking Book

    This should be it!

    Since buying this book, I now own all of Rose's books. My other baking books are going to collect a lot of dust because, in my opinion, there is no reason to use other baking books because Rose's cakes have no equal. If you want your cake to be extraordinary, just make a recipe in this book-any recipe-and you will see what I mean. At first glance, the recipes might seem complicated because Rose pays attention to detail but after making a recipe or two you will see a pattern emerge and it will all click. These recipes are actually easier for me than other books whose results are, at best, only marginal. Rose suggests weighing ingredients; and if you do, the need to sift is usually eliminated. My husband went to an office party. Someone bought a cake. My husband had a piece of the cake purchased from the bakery. When he got home he told me the cake he ate tasted lke flour and did not compare to any cake I make. His favorite is Rose's Upside Down Apple Cake, the first recipe in the book. The other day I was in a rush and had no time to wait for butter to come to room temperature so I made the Whipped Cream Cake. Perfection!! Pure lightness! That cake gets better every time I bake it. The Refrigerator Banana Cake is always a favorite and elicits raves whenever I bring it to get-togethers. When we do have get-togethers, I am asked to bring the cake (and I am only baking 2 years now). If you are considering this book but are unsure, go to the library and borrow the book first. I bet you will want to buy it.

    I Also Recommend:

    This book makes you drool over the beautiful cakes...

    I love Rose Levy Beranbaum, as she is truly an gifted when it comes to cooking! She has taken a simple cake and turned it into a science on how to get the most delicious and moist cakes. This book has more recipes and pictures of her cakes. I can't wait to try the chocolate lacquer glaze. It looks stunning in the photograph, so shiny and reflective. Rose has a way of taking a basic cake and making it truly stunning. This book is her most recent cake book and it expands on her previous cake book. I highly recommend buying The Cake Bible, which covers in much more detail the basics on cake making. Then use this book as a supplement. You won't be disappointed, as Rose has done a LOT of studying and practicing to create the perfect cakes. I must mention that if you are looking for quick and easy cakes, then don't come to these books. It takes a little more work and time to create Rose's cakes, but the results are well worth it.

    Rose has done it again!

    I have several of Rose Levy Beranbaum's cookbooks and love them all. Her instructions & ingredients are very clear. The illustrations are wonderful. I may only use a few of the recipes but am thoroughly entertained by this book & her stories behind the cakes. You'll get hungry for cake just looking at this book.

    beautiful cakes for less work than you might expect

    There are all kinds of flavors and types of cakes in this book, as well as varying levels of difficulty. The directions are clear, while the cakes will look great and take less effort than everyone will think. For those who prefer less sugary, more sophisticated flavors this is a book to check out!
