It's a great book; lots of good ideas in it, and I know they'll work. I will just stay away from crumb cakes in general :)

You're all killing me! I'm trying to be a good girl and wait for Santa to bring me this book instead of running out to buy it, but y'all are making it hard!

You need it.


How can you run your fundraisers without it? You'd be doing your business and charities a huge favour.


You'd need to sell only two cakes to make back the money.


The pictures are really pretty.


You cannot wait until Christmas. What if they all sell out?????

LOL, you are truly evil, tempting poor RW like that.


(Psst, don't tell her I said this, but she really does need this book.  It's better than The Cake Bible.))

I am simply telling her that if she cares about her business and her charities, and the US economy, she needs to purchase it. Anything less is truly selfish hoarding of her money. Has she no conscience?


Hee.

: ) Santa just arrived a little early this year. You are very persuasive, though!

That was my plan too. Very glad I didn't wait.

Gotcha.....I thought the recipe was not a good one.

Well, although I'm VERY talented, LOL, I think RLB likely has written a great recipe and it's just not my thing. Don't let my opinion stop you; I'm sure everything in the book is fantastic. What are you thinking of making?

The sour cream apple crumb cake.....I hope and then the  Sicilian Pistachio Cake...

It really is a very good crumb cake. I made a plum/cardamom version instead of apple/cinnamon. The crumbs are messy, but they always are.

My first cake was the English Gingerbread Cake with Lemon Butter Syrup. It was very good. Very moist with lots of fun flavors, lemon, orange and ginger floating around.

Just wanted to report back on the lemon cake I made this past weekend. Loved it, loved it, loved it :o). I like her cake technique, the curd was a delight and I even liked the buttercream. If I could change one thing, I'd have incorporated some lemon into the buttercream as well, and make the whole thing a little more lemony/tangy, but the recipe as is is definately worth making.

That sounds really good. I'm looking forward to trying that one and I'll try and add some lemon to the buttercream, as you suggest.

helena1's picture

(post #65181, reply #97 of 97)

Let me know how it turned out if you do :o). The buttercream was white chocolate-based, which makes it on the sweet side (although not overly so). I love lemon, so I think the buttercream would benefit from it. I'll have to look in the Cake Bible to see if she has a lemon buttercream.

I've taken salted pistachio's (and peanuts), rinsed them, then lightly toasted to get rid of any moisture before using.

We just posted Rose’s Golden Lemon Almond Cake recipe last week after her demo at the Epicurean Classic. Enjoy!

As much as I love Rose's recipes--I think I have all her other bookds--the lemon oil and the turbinado sugar in the ingredient list would make me look elsewhere.

Is it because you can't find turbinado sugar and lemon oil locally or because you dislike them? I can easily send you some of the sugar which all of our markets carry, but am not so sure about the lemon oil. Please let me know if you'd like the sugar. It's awfully good in many things, or so we think.

Aw,  you're so sweet.  No it's available, but generally not on my pantry shelf. I usually don't shop for items for one specific recipe, they tend to get shoved to the back of my already overcrowded shelves. I must be getting old and crotchety.

You? NEVER!

I used to be young and crotchety. lol

I like to sub turbinado for white or brown sugar in various things. It's yummy. Expensive, too, but not as expensive as a treehouse. ;-)

I am beside myself with excitement! Cute boy in brown uniform just delivered a box from Amazon. A dear friend of mine sent me the book as a surprise!!!!!!

I was at Border's today and they have the book.  It's a tome, larger (I think) and thicker than The Cake Bible, but it's a GORGEOUS volume.  You'll want to make everything in it.  I like the format and the type is easy to read.  Her instructions and notes are, of course, clear and detailed.  The photos are great, everything looks luscious and had me salivating.  The binding appears to be a much better quality than The Cake Bible and Rose's Christmas Cookies, both of which I had to replace because they fell apart.  I'm hoping my copy will arrive from Jessica's this week.

I'm so glad you like it that much. Of course, my copy has been ordered as well, I just couldn';t resist this one :o)

I was going to wait at least a week before picking up this book because I'm moving this weekend, but I don't think I'm going to last. I packed up the cookbooks that I have at my current apartment this morning and they filled 3 photocopier paper boxes. And those are just my "favourite" books that I have to keep near me.  My newest book is Pierre Herme's Chocolate Desserts. I found it for $10 at Homesense/Winners (Canadian discount store related to US TJ Maxx) last week!

$10 for the Pierre Herme book is a STEAL -- it is out of print. My mother paid a hefty sum for a copy for my birthday. You lucked out!

I just went to see if this title was one I had, (have Desserts too) and lo and behold, found my phone system instructions as a marker for the brownie recipe.  I can finally see if I can get rid of the buzzzzzz on the line.  I can also make the brownies again. :)


I have no choice but to get Rose's Heavenly Cakes.  If I don't, every time I look at her section of the shelf I would know I was missing something.   Plus, I've been following the email/blog on it for so long that I can't wait to see it.


Edit:  I just checked and it's available new on Amazon.  Perhaps it's the Desserts that's out of print?  Just checked and it's available too.  Maybe it's a first edition?


But, but, it's SUPPOSED to taste like that!
