Bake It Like You Mean It

Gorgeous Cakes from Inside Out

Ms. Bullock-Prado did an amazing job with this cake cookbook. This was no ordinary cookbook either. This was steps above just making a cake straight out of the box by those popular companies that can be found in any local supermarket. Instead, this book can be considered the next wave in making, baking and building cakes that are masterpieces from the inside out. Ms. Bullock-Prado took the time explaining why having the right fresh ingredients and the correct tools in the kitchen can help you make an ordinary cake turn into an extraordinary one for any occasion during the year. She detailed every step needed and even added plenty of tips along the way to help you bake the best cakes ever.

Although I haven’t had the opportunity to try to bake one of these delicious looking cakes myself, I do plan on baking one as soon as I can. My only problem is trying to find some of the special ingredients in the small country town I live in. Once I do though, I plan on testing some of these recipes out. In this cookbook, the author shares recipes under varying categories such as: Airy & Marvelous Meringues; Light & Scrumptious Sponge Cakes; Rich & Decadent Butter and Pound Cakes; Smooth & Creamy Cheesecakes and Mousse Cakes and lastly Springy & Yummy Yeasties.
