I was very excited to receive this book as a gift. Having spent some time in Australia as a child, I went to many afternoon teas. I have vivid memories of pikelets, biscuits, cakes, and other yummies set on a beautiful hand embroidered table cloth. With tons of enthusiasm I bought the supplies to cook my way through the book. I hadn't realized that just about all the measurements of ingredients need to be converted to American measurements from either ounces or grams. The author does offer some guidance about this in the first part of the book, however, this is not specific enough for the many different ingredients. I found a website that helps [...] but it was quite an effort. I made about 6 of the recipes so far. Some have turned out as pictured, some did not. I love this book just for the memories that it brings back to me, but if you decide to make the things in the recipes you will have to do your homework.
