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!

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!!

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 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.

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.

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!
