Let me first preface this post with a fact. I have never been Martha Stewart fan; however, I stumbled across her book entitled Cakes so I checked it out from the library.
I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of cakes in her book. I tested a few recipes and the results were sublime. The One-Bowl Chocolate cake was moist and chocolaty. The Classic Pound cake was rich and flavorful and accompanied by five more variations. The recipes are well written and easy to follow. This is also a book I can pick up when I want a simple recipe to follow.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys baking but does not want lengthy and involved recipes. This book is perfect for the home cook.
