To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a good cookbook for beginners or intermediate bakers. There are more complex recipes such as croissants and brioche but for the most part, good entry level pastries with very clear step by step instructions.
There are some errors in the book that if you bake often, you will notice. For example, there is no flour in the molten lava cakes to hold structure. If you were to look on her website, you will see the errors in the book that she has listed. Otherwise I would have given it 5 stars.

The recipes are well written and easy to follow. Everything I’ve made from the book has turned out really well and it’s become my go-to book for baking. I like that many of the recipes have instructions for doing some of the steps ahead of time. Although the recipes show measurements in both weight and cups and some of them include instructions for hand mixing the book is best suited to someone whose kitchen is equipped with a digital scale and a stand mixer.
I've only made the cookie recipes so far but they've turned out well. The Molasses cookies and the Snickerdoodles were perfect. I like the method of mixing the batter and refrigerating it overnight before baking. It saves time and results in a better cookie. The oreos needed some tweaking as the dimensions for the log roll ended up making really oversized cookies. I cut the first batch into halves to make them more manageable....tasty though. I would definitely recommend this book.
This truly is a bakery book. From scones, brioche to cakes with butter cream icing, croissants, home made pop tarts and oreos...cookies, etc. The recipes are delicious and impressive. Some are very simple, while others may take a few days with dough rising and such. It's more time consuming, but not too difficult to do. Instructions are clear and easy to understand. Many nice photos. I can't find any recipe in this book that I don't want to make. I have made several of the cakes and have impressed my dinner guests. The carrot cake comes out perfectly, with a flat surface that is easy to ice. The Fluffy Chocolate Icing, Yum....will be using that on other cakes. The book begins with one chapter of information that is very helpful. After that, it's ALL recipes.
The cookbook looks very good and the cover with the Sticky Sticky Buns is the reason I purchased it but have not had the time to try the recipe but hope to later in the month. The recipes go into a lot of detail and time but if they turn out as good as they look then they are worth it. TB
When I first got this book, I drooled over all the pictures and recipes. Once I started baking it only got better, everything I have made has been absolutely amazing. The yellow birthday cake with chocolate ganache frosting blew me away, seriously the best cake I have ever tasted. I can't reccoment this book enough every recipe is a crowd pleaser.
