Even if you're not a skilled baker, you'll find the recipes in this book easy to follow. The author makes sure that anyone can "crack the code" of these terrific recipes with the inclusion of "at a glance" inserts that let readers know exactly what type and size of pan they will need, details about how the pans need to be prepared for baking, and how long the item will need to cook.
