8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By M. Hill TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 20, 2012
Format: Hardcover
The cookbook contains 89 tempting recipes divided within the following chapters: Sponge cakes, Tarts, Meringues, Muffins and Cupcakes, Tray bakes (brownies/bar cookies,) Festive recipes, Cheesecakes, Desserts, and Pastries and cookies.

The book is lavishly illustrated although not every recipe has an accompanying photograph. The paper used is high quality and if spills are promptly wiped-up the pages remain undamaged. The book mostly remains open when lying on a countertop and with use will probably completely relax.

The ink color used throughout the book is mercifully, black, which makes it much more user friendly than some of the stylish colors I sometimes find in cookbooks. It is almost impossible to read those pale colors (aqua, mauve, etc.) from a standing position looking down at the book on a countertop. So, I'm glad the ink color is black, but the font size within the recipes is small - around eight point. From a practical standpoint that small size makes it almost impossible to read (even with great eyesight) from the above mentioned standing position in the kitchen.

I tried out a few recipes and was pleased with the results. Hot Gingerbread Souffle is simply amazing. The author suggested serving the dish with homemade vanilla custard, but I put a small scoop of good vanilla bean ice cream on the side and it was wonderful, too.

The Red Velvet Cupcake recipe is delectable and thankfully avoids red food coloring, instead relying on the chemical reaction of the baking soda and vinegar. The use of chocolate buttercream frosting with the cupcakes didn't appeal to me so I substituted the cream cheese frosting recipe included in the book and was very happy with the result.

Beautifully design and full of photos; not just of the finished desserts--- lots of step by step photos and of mr. lanlard, too. ^__^ tips and tricks to make the baking process easier. I've tried the blueberry muffin recipe and LOVE how moist they came out. Some recipes do require a lot more technique and ingredients but there's A LOT of recipes and variety to pick and choose. I can't wait to visit the actual cake boy cafe!
