My go-to book for baking
January 3, 2013
I love this book!!! I love trying new recipes but hate getting disapointed when the recipe turns out to be a flop. 95% of the recipes here were great. Easy to follow step-by-step instructions with tips for altering the recipes if desired.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Quality, Design

Delightful Baking Cookbook
January 15, 2012
This is a gorgeous new cookbook from one of my favorite stores Williams-Sonoma. It is well laid out and filled with gorgeous photographs of the completed baked goods. I like the features on various bakeries like Sugar Mama's Bakeshop in Austin, Texas and the Salty Tart in Minneapolis....bakeries you would never had heard of without this book.
Who can resist recipes like chocolate-cherry buttermilk buns, peanut butter-chocolate swirls, chocolate marshmallow cream cupcakes and buttermilk pie with raspberries.
The chapters included are:
Breakfast
Breads
Cookies and Bars
Cakes and Cupcakes
Pie and Tarts
Custards and Souffles
It concludes with Basic Recipes and Tips and Tricks.
Gorgeous baking cookbook! One you will definitely want to add to your cookbook library.
Pros: Easy to Use, Design
