5.0 out of 5 stars another DVD for your Martha/baking library January 2, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just to give fair warning, I am a "Martha-head", but I think I can be pretty objective. So with that in mind, once again, we have been given another treasure of a DVD. It is full of the best of her baking favorites, and per expected Martha-standard, it is perfect.

The segments have been taken from her former TV format where you are in her home as she brings you cookies, cakes, pies, and tarts and shows you how you can create any of these delightful treats, with detailed instruction and clarity. The segments are color-perfect, the sound quality on the button, and all the recipes are easy to download on your computer. But if you don't own a computer, not a problem, because she gives the ingredients and their measure as she goes along.

Something that I think people will enjoy is the "Special Features" section at the end of the DVD. You get all sorts of idea's and tips that range from creating a "Baking Pantry 101" to cake decorating tips to how to make perfect pie crusts, etc.

And one of the best additions was the "Blooper" section. Martha has taken quite a beating in regards to her alleged impatience in her pursuit of perfection but this will show you the funny and giggly side of her, with several segments that have gone a bit awry. She has a good sense of humor and she rolls with it.

As for the content itself, it goes as such:


Baking Pans 101

Basic Pie Crust: Pate Brisee

Standard Tart Dough: Pate Sucree

Crust Decorating Techniques

Freezing Pie Dough Tip

Blind Baking Techniques

Cake Stenciling


Ultimate Chocolate Layer Cake (this is such a good cake!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wowzer! What a Gem! March 23, 2006
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although I have Martha Stewart's new book on baking, I also purchased the DVD. This is such a warm and cozy DVD. I play it on my computer. There are nights when I just don't want to look at re-runs, and watch this instead. I call this my 'Baking class.' And that's what it is. A private one-on-one baking class with Martha! She has guests for some of the segments and they have lots of interesting things to share. The Red Velvet Cake is made by a lovely lady from down South who shares her secrets with not only Martha, but you. You feel as if you have pulled up a chair in the kitchen and are sitting there with them. A wonderful, wonderful learning tool. She goes all out to make sure you have all the pans and other items you will need to get started. Helpful hints, hands-on demonstrations. Some recipes with the hand-held mixer and some in the stand mixer. And even some by hand. I wish I had this DVD in 1991 when I first started baking for the first time. I cannot praise this DVD highly enough. It is an absolute must for anyone who is not a real pro yet but wants to be. You have such a long list of episodes to watch. And you can watch them over and over and over again. It's the next best thing to having Martha right there in your kitchen with you. This is better. You're in HER kitchen, and you don't have to do the dishes afterwards! How great is that?! Love this DVD. Please buy one for yourself and friends. You'll get a big hug if you do.

5.0 out of 5 stars Martha's Baking Favorites Review January 31, 2006
This DVD is very helpful. It has delicious looking desserts. Some of them are in Martha's Dessert book and others are in her new Baking cookbook but it helps to watch her make the recipes rather than just read about them. The information in the DVD is appropriate for beginning bakers. I particularly like the tools and equipment overview given in the beginning. I highly recommend this DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tool for beginners June 15, 2010
By Nik
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I can not begin to say how much the information contained herein has helped me so much in my baking. The lessons on pie making, especially the crusts (my nemesis), cake techniques ie. creaming, beating egg whites (merengues), and all of the different recipes and ways to make and decorate, are indespensible. I simply adore this tutorial. For a person who does not cook or bake, much, mostly because of fear of messing up and guilt of wasting (I dislike throwing away anything that can be made and used for sustenance, even if it is a sweet) I now have the skill, which is so simple to master, on how to bake. I know now how to make a perfect pie crust, by hand. Me!

There are however, a few cons that come along with this tutorial. The video starts out slow with Martha introducing the recipes and walking the viewers through it. Great! When the guest segments start, the recipes seem to fly by which makes it confusing a bit. People talking over one another, steps being intermingled, which leads me to the next con...

No clearly explained ingredients for the recipes. In the beginning of each segement, I think there should have been a clear run through of all of the ingredients/equiptment needed, then go into the recipe making. Here, there is none. A big dissapointment. If you listen carefully, you can jot down the ingredients as they go along and/or go back, if you can catch what it is they are saying... Which leads me to the next, you know...

There are no English subtitles. Closed Captions, sure, Spanish and French subtitles, sure. But no english. Where were the tecnichals for this dvd produced? Because we live in America, no english subtitles? We live in America. Sometimes the words of those on screen are not clear enough, although I must admit Martha's english is superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Martha should be respected!
I am well aware that not many women/men like Martha Stewart. Her voice is imperialistic and condescending at times, but she should be respected for her abilities. Read more
