Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Beranbaum, specialist of baked goods that make people's eyes light up, tops her renowned The Cake Bible with an updated, modern collection of delicious confections. Bakers who have already dog-eared every page of that earlier book need not worry: this is far from a duplicate, with only the occasional repeat or adaptation. The recipes range from towering creations for weddings and other special events to baby cakes for bite-size indulgence, and from the simplest apple upside-down cake and yellow butter cupcakes to the elegant rose-shaped genoise and the stunning holiday pinecone cake. Beranbaum goes into great detail in her recipe instructions, yet still manages to keep the lengthy guidelines friendly, accessible and unintimidating, whether she is describing how to make a whipped ganache topping or beurre noisette, an integral part of her delicate array of financiers. Chocolate, fruit, cream, spun sugar: Beranbaum enlists the best ingredients (which she reviews in a helpful glossary) to create knockout cakes, and with her patient, meticulous description of the measurements and process, anyone with a good mixer and spatula, some time and determination will be able to turn out impressive sweet sensations. (Sept.) (Publishers Weekly, July 6, 2009)

I was a bit disappointed by this one. The cover was so attractive but inside, it looks a bit old fashioned. The recipes seem also old fashioned and heavy. I do have other pastry books that inspire me more, even with classic recipes. Here I taste the excess of sugar and the heaviness of the cakes just by reading the book. I think this book would need some time to get through to me. I don't despair that it will but it's sure not love at first sight.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A classic cookbook....................... 25 septembre 2009
Par Toni - Publié sur Amazon.com

Rosie, Rosie, Rosie!! You are a queen upon a very special pedestal which has very few equals! And anyone who possesses this tome of baking knowledge will absolutely agree! Rose Levy-Beranbaum has outdone herself in her latest offering of baking excellence! Where her "Cake Bible" was a standard for many years, this has outdone even that book!

The first time I met Rose was at a tiny little bookstore in Chicago many, many years ago. She was there for the signing of "Cake Bible" and she was the very first professional baker/chef that I had met on the beginning journey of my road to serious baking/cooking. She was most kind and gracious and I remember thinking of what a wonderful life would lie ahead for this sweet lady. Needless to say, her "Cake Bible" became a standard for many people but this latest offering from her talented mind is exquiste and is by far, one of the very best learning and reference books ever! Also, within the last couple of years, I have enjoyed her website/blog which makes her even more accessible for general or specific questions on baking. The journey she took us on while making this wonderful new book was a joy to follow.

It is a large, heavy, detailed book of cakes, cupcakes, bars, baby-size cakes with excellent photography, all printed on heavy, high-end paper to for which you would expect of books of this quality. Immediately at the introduction of each recipe, you have the serving size and baking time, followed by a brief synopsis of what she feels is the essence of that particular recipe. Then the "Batter" ingredients are laid out in a graphic form in which you are given the ingredients, with the Volume listed next to it, then the Weights of each ingredient, in both American and Metric form. Under this graph of information begins the steps to be taken beginning with any special equipment that would be needed, oven preparation, then the actual preparation of the batter. Any variations that could be taken, as well as "Highlights for Success" are listed and very much appreciated in that sometimes, there are little tricks, sidebars of information, and alternatives that you can incorporate into making the recipe a bit easier or more grand.

For example, I never realized that the leavening agents within cupcakes require that you bake them immediately or they will lose the power of that ingredient, so unless you have a large oven to bake all the batter at one shot, you're better off making the batter in batches.

Also, the presentation of these creations can be made so much more impressive with just a little creative help such as gingerbread boys and girls encircling a "Ginger Cheesecake" (who would have thunk it?) or using ladyfingers as an upright band of crust for the "Cranberry Crown Cheesecake" which also have a lovely wide ribbon around their base for an extraordinary presentation.

Being someone who appreciates photography in a cookbook, the photo's contained within are both superb and generous, with close-up shots that show detail. There is also single or sequential photography for certain cakes that require more intimate knowledge of preparation or assembly such as the "Holiday Pinecone Cake" (it acutal looks like a pinecone) or how to make "Spun Sugar" or how to pipe the "Ladyfingers", etc. Sometimes, just one little photo will clarify a question in your mind and Rose seems to know which step would benefit from a photo. Many of the cakes have their finished photo in this grand book but not all, though there are enough to satisfy everyone.

Her book is constructed as such:

Index

I have since made the Lemon Poppy Seed-Sour Cream Cake as well as the Individual Pineapple Upside-Down Cakes and they were excellent! Do I believe in the delicious outcome of the rest of the recipes? Absolutely...............many years of referring to Rose's "Cake Bible", "Bread Bible", and "Christmas Cookies" have made me a ardent follower and trusting devotee of Rose.

This is without a doubt one of the best books that I've seen and I would absolutely rank this as an instant classic. I would describe this not only as a wonderful book of recipes but an excellent teaching tool and reference guide to place on a more prominent part of your book shelve.

A deep bow of gratitude to our Rosie!!

Buy this book now.

I cannot believe how good this book is. I wish there were more than 5 stars.

Once again Rose has produced an authoritative yet fun book that is beautiful in every sense and that is just as suited to the novice as to the expert.

Last night I made two batches of two different cupcakes and they are the finest I have ever tasted. I am planning on making every recipe.

Almost every cake is photographed, which I know many people find important in choosing a cook book.

Check out Rose's videos on youtube, which show her preparing these and earlier recipes. The fact that she posts her work for others to learn from for free is all you need to know about Rose. She is passionate about baking and sharing her knowledge and love of cakes, not about becoming a rich "celebrity" cook.

If Rose is reading this, I'd like her to know how inspirational she has been to me, both in my baking, which has improved dramatically since I nervously picked up her cake bible, and in a general sense of striving for excellence in what I do. And that her Mahogany Buttercrunch Toffee has earned me several marriage proposals.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-have for anyone who bakes cakes 25 septembre 2009

Whether you're a novice, an old hand, or somewhere in between, this book will make you a better scratch baker. Recipes run the gamut from fast-and-easy to more complex special occasion and wedding cakes, with photos for almost every cake in the book. These cakes are modern, with an emphasis on streamlined presentation and fresh, quality ingredients. Beranbaum tests and fine-tunes everything in her books meticulously- I have never encountered a failed recipe from her (wish I could say this about more baking books). She also maintains a website where she keeps track of any errors and will, schedule permitting, help out with baking questions.

To compare this book to the author's authoritative tome, The Cake Bible, I would say it is more approachable, more user-friendly, and much more beautiful. All the components for each cake are listed under one entry, so there is no need to flip around to different sections for a frosting or filling. Instructions are broken down step-by-step, making it easy to find your place midway through a recipe. And in addition to her elegant creations, casual recipes are also included this time around, from cupcakes to whoopie pies. Most of this book is new and does not overlap with The Cake Bible, although there are a few new incarnations of some of her more famous cakes, like the Orange Chiffon, which has been transformed into a layer cake, and the Baby Chocolate Oblivions, which are a cupcake-sized version of her three-ingredient flourless chocolate cake.

So far, I have made two recipes from Heavenly Cakes, the Whoopie Pies and the Swedish Pear and Almond Cream Cake. Both turned out incredibly well- I can't wait to try more from this book.

I must first agree with the other reviewers that this book is yet another amazing book by Rose, but I believe there are probably many of you who, like me, own and love The Cake Bible (CB), but aren't sure if we *need* Rose's Heavenly Cakes (HC). My answer: while you probably don't need it, you will surely love it if get it.

Some comparisons:

Logistics:
* HC has color throughout, color pictures for most of the cakes, and good quality paper.
* HC keeps the ingredient measurements in three columns (volume, ounces, and grams), but the formatting makes it easier to read than CB.
* Most HC recipes are for 9" x 2" round cake pans instead of 9" x 1 1/2" pans (Huzzah! No more sticky notes all over the book with conversions for 2/3 or 1 1/3 of the batter!). Other recipes are for equally easy to find pans (such as 10-cup tube pans).
* She has omitted the pictures of the pans that go with the recipe (which for some reason I liked), and the picture of cake equipment (CB 446-447).
* The organization is different. Cakes and adornments are listed together. It's nice because you don't have to have three different bookmarks when making a simple cake as in the CB. The organization can make it a little bit harder to find recipes, especially for adornments, though. The index is good, but instead of going to the frostings or fillings section of the CB, you would need to look up Buttercream, Cream cheese-frosting, Curd, Fillings, Frostings, Ganache, Glaze, Whipped Cream, etc... It's not hard, but not as easy to flip through and compare recipes.

Content:
* From reading the intros, many of the cakes have been updated, and there are new ones such as gingerbread, German chocolate, and molten chocolate cakes. Of course, as with all Rose's recipes, she makes them her own, and avoids getting things too cloyingly sweet.
* Rose admits that she now "embraces less buttercream and less fancy décor." You can see that not only in the pictures, but also in the content. The piped decorations section is one page and includes only the star, shell, and bead, and Rose says, "the only time I pipe decorations on a cake these days is when I use a whipped cream topping." To surprise me even more, the Miette Rose cake even calls for a purchased royal icing rose!! I'm ambivalent about this change. On one hand, I love the simpler décor and I think it will be more accessible to others; I know I avoided buying CB for a long time because I thought it was just pretty, not yummy (which it's not, of course). With HC, however, no one will feel bad for making the Blueberry Swan Lake cake without the swans again! On the other hand, CB's 25 pages of piping decorations were clear and fun to play around with. HC does have some new decorations such as orange peel roses and the new lacquer technique used on the cake features on the cover.
* The shift away from buttercreams also means that there isn't the endless supply of buttercream variations that are in CB.

Overall, I am very pleased with this book and look to try more new recipes and techniques. I will probably start with HC instead of the CB when I want to make a new cake, but I'm still glad to have the CB around.

Rose's books, including Heavenly Cakes, will make the home baker swear off boxed cake mixes. Her instructions are foolproof, including weights for ingredients (which is much easier than measuring). Follow her explicit directions and your cakes will turn out perfectly - even genoise! I don't think I'll ever attempt the wedding cakes section, but the yellow, chocolate and white cupcake recipes, the red velvet and the german chocolate cake recipes make this book a must have. There are also many frosting recipes that I am anxious to try, such as caramel ganache, peanut butter whipped ganache, and two white chocolate frostings. Too many recipes, too little time. You will not be disappointed in this book!
