Library Journal Review

This newest addition from award-winning author Beranbaum (The Bread Bible and The Cake Bible; features several foolproof recipes for common baked goods such as layer and sheet cakes, cookies, cupcakes, tarts, breads, pies, and more. Instructions for creating related toppings and fillings such as classic ganache, along with solutions for problems during the baking process, will help guide new bakers to create treats such as basic chocolate cupcakes, apple cinnamon coffee cake, and butter biscuits. Lavish step-by-step photographs and storing information accompany each recipe. A highlight is the straightforward measurements, offered in both metric and standard, and easy-to-follow instructions. The introduction lists essential baking equipment used throughout. While there are some precise techniques, such as piping, the author's conversational advice makes these options less intimidating. VERDICT Similar to her previous works, Beranbaum's latest is destined to be popular among home bakers of all skill levels. © Copyright 2018.
