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.
I didn't realise this was an American publication. Measurements and ingredients are in American. I didn't realise how many ingredients have different names in America (even flour and fat). I had to google the recipes to find out what the English equivalent was. Also, the recipes make 24 cakes as standard, which means halving all the quantities. Sounds straightforward, but I found it a pain! Some lovely recipes in here though.
I bought this book for recipes and ideas for my parents' anniversary party and loved it. The pictures are great and it is easy to follow, even with US cup measures that I actually think are much easier than messing around weighing out ingredients. Yes it tells you to use some Betty Crocker products but it is a book by Betty Crocker after all, and I do use them anyway especially devil's food cake which is my kids' birthday cake of choice. I feel it is a great purchase at a very reasonable cost.
Was a bit disappointed in this book to be honest. It appears to me to be just a decorating book using a few basic recipes to build upon. The measurements are a bit strange too, that is it shows ingredients for 24-48 cupcakes at a time. I would not recommend this book although the pictures and book quality itself is lovely.
I was looking for a cupcake book as a gift for a friend and saw this one. When it arrived it was packed full of delicious and beautifully decorated cupcakes. I was so impressed with it that I ordered a second one...for myself! Lovely book! Highly recommended!
