Thank goodness the recipes are salvageable in the hands of a skilled baker.
Glad to say my instinct were right. Every cake in this book is delectable. It makes me very popular at get-togethers! Some recipes are more complicated than others; be sure to read ahead on some for items that need prep time such as chilling. If she makes a part two I will be ready to buy!
So while I do recommend this book, it appears some of the recipes may be trial and error.
I do have a few quibbles. The Dulce de Leche cake is problematic. I have tried to make the sponge cake three times and have spectacularly failed every single time. I make a lovely angel food cake and have succeeded with other sponge cakes, but this one is beyond me with the instruction set given. The instructions for the Dulce de Leche Cream were problematic too. Adding the Dulce de Leche to the cold cream (as instructed) caused the Dulce de Leche to transform into a rock-like formation and caused a cream shower when the mixer blades hit the "rock". Even on low speed. I also wish the recipes included weights as well as measurements. That said, it's still my favorite baking book for turning out a cake. I love The Cake Bible too, but this book is much more fun and more user friendly. The two together are in use 80-90% of the time I bake a cake.
Update: I had originally given this four stars but need to add the fifth as I've made several more cakes from here. All of them are excellent. I make most of my cupcakes from these recipes too. And I'm pretty sure I've made that Mile High cake 20+ times now. Also -she has a buttercream recipe with two whole eggs I think is my new go to recipe, especially if I've running low on eggs.
