This is one of the top 3 cake cookbooks I have ever used in my over 40 years of baking.
The authoress bakes in the Parisian and European style using only top quality ingredients - almost all available from good supermarkets.

I usually borrow the best cookbooks from the library and copy the best recipes to my computer. If I copy 4 recipes, I think the cookbook a success. I copied over 2 dozen recipes from this book.

The cakes are complicated and take time to make. But the result is the best cake you have ever tasted in your life. Her decorating instructions are easy - mostly spreading, a little piping, and use of flowers & ribbons.

btw - the other 2 best cake cookbooks are the chocolate ones by Alice Medrich.
