I have always used boxed cake mixes and now want to venture into making all my cakes annd icings from scratch. Does anyone reccommend a book that has really tasty recipes?
Welcome to CC! I get my recipes from various sources - chocolate cake from the Hershey's can, vanilla cake from TLC network, other recipes from this site, various blogs, etc. For frosting, I generally use Sugarshack's buttercream from this site as a base, and add flavorings or cocoa powder, various flavored coffee creamers as my liquids. I haven't found a recipe I like for cream cheese frosting, I think my taste buds are changing!
two of my favorite books: "the cake book" by tish boyle and rose levy beranbaum's "rose's heavenly cakes".
The Cake Bible by Rose Levy Berenbaum is the most informational cake book out there. She will make you understand like no one else can.
Thank you all for replying! I have been looking at Cake Bible by Rose Levy Berenbaum.
