4.0 out of 5 stars Delicious. Decadant. Easy., July 31, 2009
This review is from: Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook (Hardcover)
Thats right - Easy.

As a keen home baker I first read through the methods and thought, "Well, I can make them better than that..." and do you know what? I couldn't. I overcomplicated my first attempt at Lemon cupcakes, changing quantities, changing methods, and they ended in disaster.

Since then, I've followed each recipe to the letter and triumphed every time.

In suggesting you follow each recipe "to the letter", I would also recommend you do your best to overlook the amount of sugar in the cake bases - it looks like a lot, but the finished cakes are moist and most definatly not over-sweet. I know, as i've made most of them!

I would stress, however, that the cakes in here are most definatly `sometimes' foods. Ideal for afternoon teas or other special occasions where you want to impress your guests with something that sounds home-made, but looks and tastes store-bought (in a good way).

I can't help thinking, also, that the recipes are so simple they would probably be great for kids to get involved with also.
