I have just bought the hunningbird bakery's cookbook. I have read some mix reviews on this, namely that the amounts of the ingredients are a inaccurate etc... Has anyone tries this and is there any tips you can give me?

I have it, but haven't tried any recipes from it yet. I've heard the same thing you have though - recipes not turning out becuase of inacurate ingredient amounts.

I have this book as well and I have tried a few recipes and it all came out very well. I read the mixed reviews and was almost prevented from buying it but i can say the recipes i have tried have all come out brilliant.

Good luck!

I don't know, but I have a REAL problem with that! If I spend the money on a book, I expect the information to be accurate. Were they too lazy to have a proof reader? And especially with the kind of detail you need for a recipe...... Geesh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! icon_mad.gif

I tried the red velvet cake, I added a bit more flour than stated and it turned out delicious! The only thing is my cupcakes spread out as well as rose. How do I prevent them from spreading wide? If I were to place them in a fancy cupcake case, it may not fit.
