Rated 3 out of 5 by TToes Not enough recipe testing
The book itself is beautiful. The recipes are super fun and easy. I am an experienced baker who usually bakes more complicated recipes. I have already made 3 recipes. While they are absolutely delicious, ALL of the baking times noted in each recipe was incorrect. By a lot. I made the slow cooker hot fudge brownies for Father's Day. The recipe said 3-3.5 hours on high. I left it in for 4.5 and it was still very watery! I ended up removing from slow cooker and finishing in the oven. For any baker this extremely frustrating. It's unfortunate not enough time was put into the book to allow for multiple testings of each recipe.

For those reviewers who said the recipes were too easy, maybe you should have read the title of the book? These recipes are perfect for those of us who don't have time to spend a day baking! The pictures are beautiful and recipes are easy to follow. If you want to impress your guests with a delicious and beautiful dessert, but need something quick and easy, this is for you!
Rated 3 out of 5 by sophie229 book for beginners
I don't like giving poor reviews but I personally didnt care for this cookbook too much, I lovwe to bake and this tends to be for beginners who are not looking for something too difficult to make but will still, look great. Most of thes the recipes are from cake mixes which I do understand.....but this is not for me. Now with that said if you are looking for fabulous looking deserts without all, of the fuss then this is the book for you. I will give this too my neice since kt would cost too much to return it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jem2 FUN BOOK!!!
I just received my book, sat down with it and smiled the entire time. This book has such delicious recipes & so easy to follow. Simple ingredients, simple instructions,what can be better than that! I ran out & bought a few boxes of cake mix & brownie mix, some frosting so this week I will make something from this fun book. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to bake.

This is one of the best dessert cookbooks I have ever owned. The pictures are beautiful, the instructions are easy, and the ingredients are relatively economical. I want to make every single recipe which is rare for me. Usually, I will pick out one or two really good recipes from a book and that is it. I love having the secret that the recipe started with a boxed mix. You can totally fool people into thinking you are a master baker. AWESOME!

Very little that hasn't been in previously purchased books. Will be great for my Granddaughter who is just starting to bake. I just had to send back a cookie cookbook way to advanced for her. I love that it had so many pictures but the photographer did not do the pastry justice.
