I purchased this book a few days ago and spent quite some time combing through every single recipe. I'm usually a scratch baker but like most people, I'm pressed for time and occasionally need a quick, fast and delicious dessert to bring to a potluck, birthday or other celebrations. I baked the Hawaiian Sunset Cake (pg. 11) and it turned out beautifully. It was hard for me not to sneak a bite of of the cake! I love that the recipes are easy to follow and ingredients are commonly found in the grocery store. This has become my go-to dessert cookbook. What a great addition to my cookbook library!

This book really helped me come up with some great ideas for cakes for a banquet that I was recently asked to do. Everyone is still raving about how delicious and beautiful the cakes were. I love the pictures that go with each recipe. It's really helpful for me to see what it is I'm going to make. This is my favorite cake cookbook. I've already recommended this book to my family and friends.

Get this book. Seriously. It is filled with quick and easy cake recipes (they begin with a cake mix). Each recipe is a dessert table star. This is the kind of publication that one might expect from Taste of Home, quality photos of every single recipe.

I cook for crowds each week and I need desserts that look fussy but really aren't. This book helps meet that need. I get lots of rave reviews and multiple requests for the recipe each time I make a cake from it. Fun book. Great value.

You will find yourself using many of the recipes, not just a couple. Great book!

Taste of Home has a winner here. The recipes all use a cake mix which saves you time. The recipes I have tried have all been great. Can't wait to try more of them.

I purchased this as (part of) a wedding gift. My niece seems to enjoy making cakes from this, as they use store-bought cake mixes as the beginning... in today's busy lifes, this is a nice timesaver to make special cakes, and be sure they come out great in a short amount of time and effort.

Checked this out from the library, and hubby said I MUST buy this book! It's great for those left over cake mixes that you buy on sale, then forget you have and wonder what you are going to do once they near expiration. Many cleaver recipies for cookies, bars and such to make things other than cake. Arrived in great condition and earlier than promised. Would order gain from this vendor.
