It is like having a master baking right along-side you

If I can bring more than 5 stars, I will
As soon as I received this book, I started to check out the recipes. They are just fantastc!!! I do love baking so I have quite a few baking books. This is one of the best: Rose Levy gives you all the directions step-by-step through the instructions for making wonderful cakes: from the ingredients in volume (cups, tsp,...) and weight (ounces and grams), which is very helpful for me. Includes author notes, special equipment you will need and some tips... and photographs of every finished cake (which, in certain way, helps me a lot!)
This book contents soooo many recipes separated in different cathegory: Butter and oil cakes, Sponge cakes, cheesecakes, Weeding cakes...
It also contains "the golden rules of cake baking". In it, the author gives advices on what type of flour, butter, chocolate use, how to fill a cake pan. There is also guidelines for storing cakes and frostings.... and much more
I'm so excited with this book but specially with the way the author explains every recipe that I've already ordered "Rose's Christmas cookies" and "The pie and pastry bible"
I've already prepared the Barcelona Brownie, Lemon Poppy seed cake, White chocolate frosting, Banana cake, carrot cake, and some others... They all are just Amazing... I just followed the directions and everything came as beautiful as shown on the pictures on the book.
If you are interested in learn new recipes, in get new ideas or just looking for a book to start baking, this is thethe one you have to order (now!)
