Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Rose Levy Beranbaum is a kitchen chemist extraordinaire--this, after all, is the woman who wrote her master's thesis on the effects of sifting on the quality of yellow cake. In The Cake Bible, she explains the science behind types of leavening, the merits (or not) of sifting, melting chocolate, preheating ovens, and more. There are precise and detailed instructions for intricate wedding cakes as well as cakes that can be mixed and in the oven in five minutes. In addition, nutrition information is included with every recipe. Cake scientist Beranbaum doesn't forget the art, either; pencil drawings teach novice bakers how to create a garden full of flowers from royal icing and mushrooms from piped meringue. It's no wonder that the International Association of Culinary Professionals picked The Cake Bible as their cookbook of the year for 1988--this book has something to teach bakers at every level.

From Library Journal

Beranbaum, a talented baker and former owner of a New York cooking school, has produced a definitive work that will excite accomplished cooks and beginners alike. She covers basic, "foolproof" cakes as well as showcase cakes, accompanying these with pages and pages of adornments of all types; her instructions are impressively precise but unintimidating. She also includes lengthy discussions on ingredients and equipment and concludes with a special section on the chemistry of cake baking and on making a professional wedding cakes. An essential purchase. JS

5.0 out of 5 stars Best cook book on baking available
Reviewed in the United States on February 22, 2020
This is the best book on baking I have seen. It has measurements to include volume, weight in oz and grams. Highlights for more successful baked items. Full color photos for presentation and adornment. Pointers. It gives options for example, as to what size cake this will make, cakelettes, size bundt pan, finished height, etc.
There are foot notes and a paragraph entitled 'understanding' which explains, descriptively, why you get these results, (replacement of cream for milk, or egg yolks vs egg whites, a decrease in butter when you have a filling, etc.) All to make you a better baker since you will have a better understanding.
This should be given to every young person who likes to bake.
It is amazing!
I purchased this on Kindle and was so taken by it I went out and purchased the hard cover book. There are approximately 540 pages plus many full color photos.
There are special categories included for low cholesterol and no cholesterol, as well as all egg whites, all egg yolks, saturated fat, cakes for Passover, etc.
So whether you want to make a simple no-fail cake or a 14- tier wedding cake; you will find it here.
I am hard pressed to name something I don't like about this book. I guess, as with any book, it is heavy. But, it does lay flat very well and the print is normal sized. There just isn't a remedy for cookbooks. Recipe cards can get lost, spiral bound pages get torn. This lays flat so I can't complain. I keep it on top of my cabinet where there is a book rack and take it down as needed. It has an index and I use post-it tabs for favorite recipes.
If you like to bake then buy it. If you know someone who likes to bake then buy it as a gift.
The author even included the WEIGHTS, which are popular now, which makes for fool proof baking!
I have a collection of over 300 recipe books. Many of you would recognize. Many vintage and some brand-new. This is my choice for BEST cake recipes. Also, the advice and information make this a valuable teaching and refresher resource.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes me back to a time when baking was an adventure
Reviewed in the United States on February 10, 2015
Every year I find myself working on some sort of personal project. Last year it was mastering french macaron cookies and 2015 found me wanting to get back to my roots as a 10 year old baker. Honestly, those were the BEST of times. I had a fantastic mom (she's still fantastic) that kept an open kitchen for her kids. My sister and I would just open the cookbooks and see what looked good to eat and then we would make it. We had no concept of time or difficultly, we just read the recipes and did our best. Trial and error were our teachers. I was the only 10 year old who knew what Cream of Tartar was! Only my great gram could make a better meringue than me! This is where the Cake Bible takes that 10 year old fearlessness and adds in the "why" behind the recipe. I have learned so much in the few cakes I have made from this book. I'm not so good at teaching my own girls about baking so I'm hopefuly they'll soon decide to open this book, pick a cake and make some magic happen in my open kitchen. Get the cook book and read and absorb and read and absorb!
