I have tried about a dozen cake recipes from this book - I started with the bundt cakes because I had never attempted to make my own frostings and was a little nervous. I was thrilled with all the cake recipes - they all turned out just so moist and delicious. I recently got brave enough to try my hand at several of the frostings - I was amazed at how easy they actually were and how delicious. They are so much better than any store bought frosting I have ever tried - nothing but rave reviews from friends and family.

This is my go to book whenever I have to make a cake. I have used many recipes in the book as well, as opposed to many of my other cookbooks of which I only use one or two recipes.

I read cookbooks as avidly as history books. However, I look forward to the mouth- watering photos of a finished product with each recipe. My eyes tell me more than any written recipe. The information mentioned the photographer's name so I assumed there would be colorful displays. Wrong………I know I should not assume any thing but I got carried away this time and ended up extremely disappointed. This cookbook does contain photos………very small photos of cakes that all look the same with little to no color. I am pleased with the recipes chosen to be incorporated in this book and truly enjoyed the story behind each recipe, plus the many excellent tips. The author knows her "stuff" and gives great advice that all should heed! I've been in Ms. Byrn's line of work for many years and I have learned it all the hard way. I only wish I could of had her expertise thirty years ago.

I have all the Cake Mix Doctor books and find them a good basic resource for cake recipes. However, while there was some repetition of recipes in the first two volumes, there seemed to be more repeats and "reworking" of previous recipes in this volume. As always, helpful hints and tips for a specific recipe are included, along with space in the margins for notes. Unfortunately, some of the more general tips are interspersed throughout the book, rather than in one section, which can make locating useful information time consuming. She does include a conversion and recipe modification section in the introduction, which should prove helpful, since the recipes tend to be categorized by pan size. Probably not recommended as a basic volume, but might be a nice addition for a baker wanting to broaden their cake horizons.

I LOVE this book for making desserts and sweets with ease but looking like it took HOURS.... great for busy cooks that don't want the "usual cake, cookies, muffins, breads, etc". Each recipe starts with a boxed cake mix and then has added to it traditional kitchen ingredients to create a wonderful concotion that no one would believe started with a cake mix. I have used several of the cupcake recipes and even made cupcakes from some of the cake recipes. People have commented on the quality & difficulty of my baked items, as I smile knowing how simmple the recipes were. The Cake Doctor Returns is such a practical book and a must for anyone who bakes. I am getting one for my son and his future wife, they will LOVE it too!!
