Great buy Dec 24 2009

Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I bought this book and was very happy with it. It has loads of recipes on desserts. But what I like the most is that this book has an illustration to each recipe, so i know how the end product should look like.

it's a good bread and dessert book May 13 2010
By Amazon Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
I love the layout of the book - it's the same as the cooking basics book. The recipes are easy to follow and a picture helps reassure that you got it right. Good baking does come with precision and practice, so don't be too disappointed if it takes you a couple tries to get it right.

The only downside is it is a recipe book completely for desserts and bread. I was hoping for a few recipes for baked dishes that could I make and serve as a main dish. I'll still keep the book as it's a good reference for baked desserts and treats. But if you were going to only buy one cook book, I'd recommend the cooking basics book over this one.

perfect choice! Feb. 21 2012
By gizzie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
This is the perfect choice for someone who is a beginner in baking. It has a lot of pictures and step by step instructions for each recipe. It is very informative, and explains baking terms, which are used in a lot of recipes-- whipping, rising, etc. The book explains what utensils, bakeware, bowls, etc. to use to prepare recipes. I bought this book as a gift to teach my daughter how to bake, and she loves it!
