Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Raspberry Dacquoise cake

    • Jane on April 26, 2021

      This was a great special occasion dessert. Not especially hard or time consuming, especially as the meringues are made the day before. His instructions are really thorough and clear. The raspberry buttercream between the meringues was fabulous. The chocolate dribbles weren’t too pretty - it would be easier if the top layer was slightly smaller so the ganache drips down the sides rather than dropping straight to the bottom of the cake.

  • Blueberry gooseberry crumb cakes

    • Astrid5555 on July 22, 2021

      Excellent no-fuss summer berry cake with a crumb topping that is also used inside the cake. Halved the recipe to make only one cake. Got rave rewies from my co-workers who I baked this cake for.
