from the publisher

[Cakes] need reliable instructions…. from tray bakes to fruit cakes, to sponges and biscuits, teacakes to scones, little morsels for a mouthful to great big Christmas specials. There has been a plethora of baking books of late, but this should not detract from the success of this most reliable and intelligent of manuals. The recipes are laid out clearly and fall conveniently to the page.
