This book is littered with cooking errors, which is a shame as it has so many lovely ideas; the Coconut Layer Cake is amazing, though even the cooking times given for this delicious cake are way off (i.e. 45 mins instead of 20-25!!). I am a trained Pastry Chef, and I like to bake regularly as a hobby: there are so many lovely books out there that contain recipes that WORK. This doesn't.

Best cupcakes ever! -

I must admit that the first few attempts at the cupcake recipes were a bit trial and error, but having done 4 or 5 different cupcake recipes from this book, they come out perfect every time! Everyone who has eaten them (myself included) thinks they are the most moist and yummy cupcakes they've had!

A few hints for those that have had difficulties:

Use the correct size of cupcake cases. These recipes require the larger size, like muffin cases. Dr Oetker brand is best, and remember to only fill them half full so it doesn't rise too close to the top of the case.

If you do this, then you can usually make about 18 cupcakes approx and you will then be able to use most of the frosting!

Love this book!!

IMPRESS YOUR FRIENDS! -

I have used Hummingbird recipes since the first book came out, their recipes are so moist and never fail to impress. I do agree with others that cooking times and temps need to be altered to suit your cooker, but then I find this with every recipe. I always knock at least 20 degrees off the temp in my oven. I've used cupcake recipes to make celebration cakes and mixed and matched the frostings. I will never use another sponge recipe. Love it!!!

"Carrot cake mmmm" -

I didn't like carrot cake until I tried the Hummingbird recipe, now it has gone to the top of my yummy list.Too much topping on cakes? Not possible, thats what makes the Hummingbird cakes smack of luxury.I have both of the books and am putting in an order for another 4 books as friends enjoyed the cakes that I made so much.

"Get it right" -

Some recipes are great, some are just not right. Wrong size loaf tins stated. wrong cooking times by hrs! Not just a few mins expected. It is really a shame that they don't get the recipes right as it doesn't give you confidence to try more.
