The book's design makes baking easy. Ingredients, equipment, subrecipes, and even a revival of the Chocolatier magazine recipe difficulty scale (measured here in cake slices) help you know at a glance what's in store with every recipe before you dig in. And recipes work like a dream. We tried Lemon Lust Cake. The result: puckery-sweet perfection.
