OrangeReviewStarWhen it was published in 1988, The Cake Bible won the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP) cookbook of the year award for a good reason: the book is a superb guide to the art of cake baking. Beranbaum provides a solid introduction to all the ingredients, supplies, and techniques a baker needs, and her precise, detailed instructions ensure culinary success for both newbies and pros. With Rose's Heavenly Cakes, Beranbaum, who also has her own popular blog Real Baking with Rose (, expands the boundaries of her first title by delving into new cake frontiers (including oil-based cakes). Both are essential for all public library collections.
