    Best book for cakes EVER!

    I am totally in love with this book. There's a beautiful photograph for almost every cake and the vanilla cake in here is the most delicious ever! I had heard about that vanilla cake all over the internet and had to get the book to try it out.

    I'm going to continue making all the cakes here. They look totally delicious. The methods to make them are very simple.

    Great cakes!

    This is one of the best cake recipe books I've been able to find. So many of the recipes are original and unique but simple at the same time. I recommend this book to everybody looking to bake, whether you're just starting out or if you've been baking for years.

    This book is a pure delight! As an avid cookbook collector for over 30 years, I can say Sky High is the best baking book to come along in quite awhile. The recipes are refreshing: some familiar, others original creations. The directions are understandable and easy to follow even for a novice. The book design is beautiful with high quality glossy paper and exquisite photos. The book is a pleasure to browse, the recipes are fun to make, and the results look impressive and taste delicious. My only problem is which cake to make next.
