I'm not interested in cake decorating tips, I'll find that here!, but recipes in a book??? Like, everything you have tried is fantabulous? (and no doctoring mixes books - scratch only).
I normally go to allrecipes.com, and find one with a high rating.
I love the ones I have tried from this book!

I found I'm not using books anymore-I'm too lazy to go through hundreds of pages to find a recipe, and I was tired of cookbooks taking up so much room. Instead I find cooking sites on line and print out the recipes for everything from cake to main courses. As a bonus, the sites usually have conversion tables, substitutes, tips, ratings, interesting tidbits and you can often find recipes by ingredients to limit your searches. Each site usually has a recipe box if you'd rather save recipes on line.
I made a few binders by catagory and add notes on each page-who liked it, how long it took to bake, what pans I used, if I changed anything, etc. Now if I need to make a cake for someone-I look through my cake book, find which cake they liked and make it. It's worked well for me. The following are a few of my favorite sites:
Hope you can find some that are useful.
