    I wanted to like this bookthan I actually did The concept was certainly compelling a book celebrating cakes rather than simply being about making them and it was edited by Betsy Lerner.I think what put me off was how the author kept switching back and forth between personal memories occasionally not cake related, she writes at length about her mother and grandmother s cooking , cake history, contests, cake shop visits and other cake related topics with little in the way of t...

    I m not sure whether to give this 3 or 4 stars I m going with 4 since she gave me real hope that someday I can successfully make frosting, and she could be quite a funny writer at times.Its an interesting topic, but she lacks focus For all her talk in the beginning about how her book is arranged in layers like a cake, get it the different subjects she tackles history of cake, her family history and her personal history, both cake related and otherwise, celebrity cake makers, etc, are all I m not sure whether to give this 3 or 4 stars I m going with 4 since she gave me real hope that someday I can successfully make frosting, and she could be quite a funny writer at times.Its a...

    Bought this at the Red Canoe in the Lauraville section of Balti where the author is from I was at the Red Canoe the day of her book signing although I left before she arrived.I really couldn t find any clear point to this book It just seemed to ramble on and on and on If you are familiar with Balti, you can follow many of the references in the book But if you are not a Balti area person, you will lose quite a bit.The premise of the book is a good one But some where along the way Bought this at the Red Canoe in the Lauraville section of Balti where the author is from I was at the Red Canoe the day of her book signing although I left before she arrived.I really couldn t find any clear point to this book It...

    to borrow a phrase from cooking competitions, the concept is brilliant but this book fails in execution this book is presented as a celebration of cake, but the book reads as a celebration of the author and her obsession with cake within the balti area the problem is that she comes across as a bit of a know it all and doesn t really allow the reader to make their own judgments in some instances she seems oblivious to her own faults she mentions interrupting a conversation between a famo to borrow a phrase from cooki...

    Leslie F Miller had me at the book title Reading it, however, was sometimes a struggle I expected, as the title said, a celebration of cake Instead, the book is part memoir, part history lesson, part inside peek at the Balti cake scene.I have to admit I disliked the insider glimpse the author gave into Balti bakeries I simply didn t care, and the analysis of the contest for Good M...

    I may have built this one up too much when I read the description because I was a little disappointed but definitely appreciate the candidness with which the author revealed the details of her cake obsession You have to give a woman credit when she is willing to reveal that she has eaten cake huddled in a dark corner over a trash can I hold this image in my memory and it actually empowers me to resist cake I must agree whole heartedly that cake is special and cake is love I woke up quite ear I may have built this one up too much when I read the description because I was a little disappointed but definitely appreciate the candidness with which the author revealed the details of her cake obsession You have to give a woman credit when she is willing to reveal that she has eaten cake huddled in a dark corner over a trash can I hold this image in my memory and it actually empo...

    Overall, interesting, and sometimes even funny she tries funny a lot, but it doesn t always go that way My main problem with it is how contradictory she seems to be She s a self proclaimed cake addict, but then has this huge tirade against artificial sweeteners and Crisco and such, but then her FAVORITE cake in the WORLD, when it s not the Silver Palette Carrot Cake which I have issues with just by itself how can a VEGETABLE cake be the FAVORITE Granted, Silver Palette s great, and I ha Overall, interesting, and sometimes even funny she tries funny a lot, but it doesn t always go that way My main problem with it is how contradictory she seems to be She s a self proclaimed cake addict, but then has this huge tirade against artificial sweeteners and Crisco and such, but then her FAVORITE cake in the WORLD, when it s not the Silver Palette Carrot Cake which I have issues with just by itself how can a VEGETABLE cake be the FAVORITE Granted, Silver Palette s great, and I have yet...
