Firstly the book is visually very appealing, I felt like a lot of time and though went into the layout of the book as well as the recipes which were included. The book contains a variety of different bakes such as cupcakes, pastries, cakes,traybakes and loaves. Everything is set out neatly and explained well so that it is easy to understand and follow,some recipes even come with additional options for you try switch in or out.

Well set up and well photographed, this is an attractive cookbook. I found the liner notes a bit self-satisfied given that I have never been to the bakery nor did I even know it existed but the recipes are well set up with the icing and cake recipes separated (but consecutive) so if you want to mix and match, it's easy to do so. There are some twists on the classics but otherwise traditional recipes.

Visually delicious, and the recipes look promising too. I've yet to try them out (so may adjust rating afterwards). The tone was a little bit smug sometimes, so I do expect great results based on their boasting :). I was surprised to see so many Aussie/Kiwi influences here, but then I didn't know that one of the 2 founders actually is from New Zealand. Seems like an interesting mix of old favourites and new (to me) discoveries.

I borrowed this book from the library and I love it!

The picture illustrations were so beautiful amd enticing.

I bake when my mood strikes me, which is usually, the recipe is easy and foolproof. I love the fact that each recipe has a picture beside it, so I will not have to imagine how it will look like.

I'm dreading to return this book.. Need to buy this book in my collection.
