This is the best book I ever bought.
She not only write about baking but the science of it and she write it with details. With her books, I can always bake a almost perfect cake without any problem. Her recipes so far is good for less sugar in it. Recommended!

Review quote

"Rose Levy Beranbaum is a kitchen chemist extraordinaire--this, after all, is the woman who wrote her master's thesis on the effects of sifting on the quality of yellow cake. In "The Cake Bible," she explains the science behind types of leavening, the merits (or not) of sifting, melting chocolate, preheating ovens, and more. There are precise and detailed instructions for intricate wedding cakes as well as cakes that can be mixed and in the oven in five minutes. In addition, nutrition information is included with every recipe. Cake scientist Beranbaum doesn't forget the art, either; pencil drawings teach novice bakers how to create a garden full of flowers from royal icing and mushrooms from piped meringue. It's no wonder that the International Association of Culinary Professionals picked "The Cake Bible" as their cookbook of the year for 1988--this book has something to teach bakers at every level." -- Amazon.com
