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

moved to high-altitude at 28 @ had nothing but disasters in baking...had to re-teach myself everything I'd already taught myself when i was 6 (my mom didn't learn to cook until she had 3 kids, lost the nanny when we moved back to the states, & my fighter-pilot dad wasn't around often enough to do it for her).
Rose's explanations of the chemistry of baking at high altitude were the BEST! i also found her recipes to be excellent & are ones i use, often. i have some cake decorating talent so none of the pictured cakes are any problem for me.
if you don't have any cake decorating experience, check at Hobby Lobby for classes. they're around $30 for 4 classes of 2 hours each. you can also take additional, higher level classes.
I have made a couple of the chocolate cakes and a couple other things but everything in this book is amazing. I just opened an early christmas present from my husband and her newer cookbook called Rose's Heavenly Cakes was part of my Christmas. Rose is awesome, she does not rip you off on her books, she does not put a new one out every year and this is literally COVER TO COVER recipes and instructions. She explains everything from structure to the ingredients, gives you batches of cake to make wedding cakes and so much more. Love it rose and so far I am LOVING the new one as well.
Even if you are not doing a wedding cake she has so many wonderful and practical recipes in 3/4 of the book, that is is well worth the small cost...
