My Take on the Book
What was amazing with this cookbook was the array of desserts that the author shares with you and all you need to start is a cake mix and she takes you from there. I have tried out a number of the recipes and let me tell you, they are easy to make thanks to the step-by-step directions that the author provides and you can gauge your success through the amazing color images that are provided within the cookbook for some of the recipes. What would have made the book even stronger in my opinion was images for all of the recipes! Overall though, I was impressed and amazed at the number of recipes that were provided and the fact that all you needed to start was a cake mix (who would have thought).
