I am a baker. I absolutely love to create in the kitchen, and share with my friends and family. Although, sometimes I find myself in a rut and making the same things over and over. This can get pretty boring. When I had the chance to review Complete Cake Mix Magic by Jill Snider, I thought it would be a great opportunity to try out some new ideas! There are 300 ideas in the book - covering cakes, muffins, cookies and frostings....what more could you need?
Jill Snider has decades of baking experience, including 25 years as the Test Kitchen Manager for a major flour maker. In addition to being a bestselling cookbook author, she's a highly-respected food stylist and recipe developer. Jill lives in Toronto, Ontario.
The ideas are simple and use boxed mixes - they may have a few extra ingredients, but if you're a baker - you probably have everything you need right in your cupboard! Even if you're not experienced in the kitchen, it should be no problem for you to follow the step by step instructions that are laid out for you.
As I flipped through the book, everything looked amazing. However, the first recipe that REALLY caught my eye was the Chocolate Peanut Butter Tower. It is a 4 layer chocolate cake layered with peanut butter icing and chopped up peanut butter cups. You frost the cake with chocolate peanut butter frosting - what more could a PB and Chocolate lover ask for?
