The Best Carrot Cake

This book has the best carrot cake, I don't use the cream cheese frosting in the book. All you need to do is add a little bit more cinnamon, and refrigerate it overnight. There is not a ton of photos, but all of them are beautiful. I love the cappy's pie crust, pastry cream, homemade marshmallows(better than store brought), and italian buttercream. The yellow cake was good(not great). I plan on trying all the recipes, I cannot wait to try the Chocolate Turtle Torte.

Comfort Food At Its Best!

Have collected cook books forever, and this is one of my best! Excellent recipies, I have made almost every one! The type of comfort food every dinner guest loves, and every one requests the recipie! In a days of lack-luster light and fat free, these are celebration foods worth the splurge!

Want to impress your guests?

This is a great cookbook. I have quite a few dessert cookbooks in my collection, but this one is destined to be a favorite. Her instructions are straightforward and easy to follow. I really appreciate that she has a master recipe and then variations so you can 'customize' the desserts. For example, she has a wonderful Banana Creme Pie recipe that received rave reviews from our dinner guests. For my next party I tried the Coconut Creme Pie, again with wonderful results. My one fault with this book is that the desserts are not for the faint of heart. These desserts are labor intensive and the author does not tell the home cook that although you will need the chocolate sauce and chocolate ganache for the pie, you will need far less than what the recipe calls for. The sauces I needed for the pies was more for decoration rather than as a filling. The Chocolate Buttermilk Cake was simply divine. I used leftover ganache to fill it and it was heavenly. The desserts taste wonderful and the pictures are exquisite. It was well worth the money.

Excellent Dessert Cookbook

This is a wonderful dessert cookbook, especially if you are looking for one main book to use. Like Caprial Pence's other cookbooks, recipes are very tasty and the directions are easy to follow. What is particulary nice about this cookbook is the photographs that show the various steps for certain cooking techniques. Whether it is a cake, cookie, muffin, ice cream, or other sweet treat that you want to bake, Caprial Pence and Melissa Carey have the perfect recipe!

Beautiful and inspirational cookbook!

What a great cookbook! Authors Caprial Pence and Melissa Carey have created the perfect format for a cookbook that not only gives you delicious, easy to follow recipes but also gives you the tools to become your own creative dessert chef. Each recipe in the book is accompanied by some suggested variations. For example, the recipe for Sour Cream Cheesecake is followed by tips on how to turn the master recipe into Berry Cheesecake, Individual Mocha-Orange Cheesecakes and Chocolate Cheesecake. Studying the suggested variations encourages you to be creative and use the master recipe to create your own unique desserts. The book is beautifully photographed and includes photos demonstrating some of the trickier techniques. The desserts featured are comprehensive - cakes, pies, custards, cookies, ice cream and pastries are all here. A great kitchen resource!
