Review

If you want to shine amongst your friends and family as being the best dessert chef they've ever known this is the book for you. But, of course, you'll have to keep it a secret. By using packaged mixes and adding other ingredients, all of a sudden we can turn an ordinary cake mix into something spectacular. For the purpose of the review we are asked to test three recipes. The first one I tested was Chocolate Zucchini Cake. Using a devil's food cake mix and adding the usual ingredients of eggs, water and oil I also added cinnamon, zucchini, chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Oh my, it was delicious -- moist and decadent. The second recipe I tested was Pumpkin Pie Crunch. Using a yellow cake mix and adding pureed pumpkin (from a can,) eggs, and spices made a great base. The crunch was made from chopped pecans and a lot of butter. This made a very good desert and froze very well. The third recipe I tested was Chocolate Raspberry Almond Oat Bars. Using a white cake mix and adding oats
and melted butter, I ended up with a crumbly base. The raspberry jam sprinkled with chocolate chips and chopped pecans made a great filling. These freeze well also. I am hooked on using cake mixes as a base for other deserts. It's easy, the ingredients are measured out already, and definitely saves time. I highly recommend Complete Cake Mix Magic -- I promise, you WILL shine! (Irene Watson Reader Views 2010-11-22)

Illustrates that no hocus-pocus is required to consistently produce outstanding results with a minimum of time and effort. (Trenton Trentonian 2005-10-19)

I bought this to start a collection of cookbooks for my granddaughter. I love it. She is going to be so excited to receive this as a gift. She is an avid baker and will love it.

I was impressed with this book and the service from Amazon.com with my ordering process.

The standard Cake Box is full of unimaginative sin. Active ingredients: Air and sweetness. (Like a politician on election eve?) With the help of this book and the zany ingredients suggested, your Cake Mix becomes something else entirely.

You will need a friend or two. The whimsical nature of these "recipes" brings a touch of hilarity to the kitchen that is best shared. Rolling around the floor in fits of laughter by your self is just not proper. You will also need a friend to help you eat the resulting behemoth. 3 bananas, after all, do add a certain bulk to the product.

This is a fantastically fun kitchen fantasy. Just don't get carried away. You will need some place besides your own tummy to tuck these treats.
