CONS: A few recipes depend on the yellow cake recipe in the book. Unfortunately it is missing a very important detail, what temperature to bake it at. I used 350 degrees. I then tried the lemon cheese layer cake it asked you to juice the lemons but did not state how much lemon juice you should have nor the size of the lemons. Either would have been helpful. I used 3 medium size lemons.
PROS: The lemon cheese layer cake recipe was a hit. I made the seven minute icing to go with it. The book has details about the ingredients that normally go into a cake mix that are very helpful. It also contains information such as substituting regular milk for buttermilk. I did enjoy reading about the cake ladies. It made the recipes more personal. I will try more recipes and update as I go
There was enough diversity of desserts so that there is something for everyone and every occasion. But mostly it made you feel like they were sharing a bit of themselves with you & making each confection it's own reason for celebrating.
I like the different regions, ages, and walks of life of each Woman and the confection she submitted. It really showed what great American Baking is all about.
I vow to make each and every recipe for my English & Australian Family and regail them of the Women who keep this rich tradition alive.
I got my first copy from TJ Maxx, but it was so good that I wanted to give it to two of my friends, so I ordered it from Amazon. I do not normally order books from the US to be delivered to Europe, but this book was definitely worth every penny.
