5.0 out of 5 stars Carefully Crafted Cake Creations July 23, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book really feels like it was made with care, from the easy and clear formatting to the evocative introduction - I too fondly remember those wonderful aromas of baking from childhood, when my mum had a small business making special occasion cakes. The tips and tricks at the start are welcome reminders to a trained chef such as myself (albeit for a couple of years in 1986!) and the recipes themselves are easy to follow, have a nice little personal intro, clear photographs and all the nutritional information that you might ever need.

An excellent addition to to everybody's Kindle - buy it!

1.0 out of 5 stars Formatting NOT kindle friendly March 16, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really wanted to get into this book, but the formatting is not compatible for my kindle. It became too difficult to try to work my way through each recipe (no table of contents to click to each item) and then the recipe itself is formatted in a way that made it too much work to figure out the ingredients and if I wanted to make the item. I never got to the point that I wanted to try any of the items so I am not reviewing this book based off of the recipes themselves (they might be fabulous and worth the effort?). However, I have many kindle recipe books and would rather go to one of those to find what I want to bake then try to figure out what might be good in this book. I got this for free on Amazon and would have been pretty ticked off if I would have paid for it and then had to deal with the formatting. Again, the recipes might be worth the formatting headaches as I did not get that far in this book and I normally do not review a cookbook until I've tried at least 10 of the recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally Unique Bake from Scratch Cake Recipes July 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jenny Collins writes wonderful cookbooks with totally unique recipes. That's one of the things I love about her cookbooks. Also she always includes prep and cooking times and cooking temperatures in celcius, farenheit and gas mark. There's nutritional information for each cake. She includes beautiful pictures and nice introductions for each cake. There's also a Degree of Difficulty.

But the real strength of this book are the unique and delicious recipes. These are just a few of the recipes that you get: Victoria Sandwich Cake,Hayley's Raspberry Cheesecake,Yorkhire Parkin Cake, Peach upside down cake, Chocolate Orange brownies, Honey cake, Black Forest Celebration Gateau, Easy Raspberry Mille-feuilles, Pear and Chocolate cake, Strawberry Swiss Roll, Best of British Battenberg Cake, Banana. Butterscotch and Chocolate Chip Muffins and Gooseberry Friands. Without a doubt the Black Forest Celebration Gateau has my name on it!

Great job!

Some of the recipe ingredients show up as a "?" mark. A recipe book needs to be accurate, especially in baking.
