Desaulniers divides his recipes into chapters such as "Baby Cakes," "Mom's Cakes," "Celebration Cakes," and "Sky-High Cakes." This portioning is somewhat arbitrary as the drill is usually a lusciously filled and topped layer cake. Delicious exceptions include My Little Kumquat Cake and Uncle Sam's in the Black Cake. If Desaulniers is given to a jokey cuteness (as evidenced by the above recipe titles), and neglects sometimes to describe his cakes so readers can make informed baking choices, he is careful to provide illuminating tips on equipment and techniques throughout. With 50 mouth-watering color photos, the book should bring great pleasure to all chocolate lovers, on the page and at meal's end. --Arthur Boehm --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Great book with easy to follow recipes and a picture of each of the cakes.
What I love most about Marcel Desaulniers' cookbooks are that the recipes in his books are what you will actually taste in his restaurant.
I got this book by accident when I failed to mail back the reply card on my Cook Book club.
