Every baker dreams of creating the most beautiful cake that will be remembered by the friends who get to eat it. Everyday Bakes to Showstopper Cakes by Mich Turner is the perfect primer to help bakers turn out beautiful and delicious cakes, cupcakes, and cookies. This excellent cookbook covers basic cakes and cupcakes, along with ideas for expanding those basics into showstopping desserts. There are also ideas for cakes and cupcakes that appeal to children and families, such as Raising the Baa (a cake that looks like a sheep), Go the Whole Hog (a pig cake), and Vanilla Fairy Cakes. There are even more cakes that will appeal to adults and be suitable for the most formal functions: The Althorp Chocolate and Salted Caramel Layer Cake (which was given to royalty by the author at a function she was invited to), a gorgeous Black Forest Roulade, and a Lemon and Elderflower Layer Cake. Turner has also included cakes for holidays such as Halloween Mini Rolls, Chocolate Fudge Heart Cake, and Chocolate Marbled Easter Cakes.

The photographs in this cookbook are absolutely stunning. It will be difficult to decide what to bake, since almost every single recipe will be appealing. You can’t go wrong with this beautiful cookbook. Bakers everywhere will be tempted to bake daily to turn out these excellent bakery choices.

The recipes are written in a standard, easy-to-follow format, and most recipes call for ingredients that are easily obtained. None of the recipes are difficult, although there may be a learning curve when decorating and making the cakes look as good as Turner.

All told, this is an excellent cookbook and a “must have” for serious bakers.
