The Cake Mix Doctor is in! And the prescription is simple: By doctoring up packaged cake mix with just the right extras--a touch of sweet butter here, cocoa powder there, or poppy seeds, vanilla yogurt, sherry, eggs, and grated lemon zest for the Charleston Poppy Seed Cake--even the least experienced baker can turn out luscious signature desserts, time after time. The proof is in the taste, and the taste never stops--from Toasted Coconut Sour Cream Cake to Devilishly Good Chocolate Cake; from a to-die-for Caramel Cake and a Holiday Yule Log to cheesecakes, coffee cakes, sheet cakes, pound cakes, bars, brownies, and those all-important frostings, here are 175 fast, foolproof recipes that will transform the art of home baking in America.

Who could believe these cakes came out of a box? Moist, tender, rich, deep, and complexly flavored, without a hint of artificiality, each cake stand up and delivers. But without any of the fuss of baking from scratch. Anne Byrn, an award-wining food writer and self-described purist, creates recipes that employ a cake mix's strengths---convenience, ease-of-use, dependability, and almost imperviousness to overbeating, underbeating, overbaking, and underbaking.

In addition to the recipes are the Cake Mix Doctor's Q&A's, extensive "Doctor Says" tips, lists--15 Beautiful Birthday Cakes, 15 Cakes That Will Cash in at a Bake Sale--and more, all illustrated in a full-color photographic insert.

  • This book is great for all occasions.

    I have this book and I bought it for a friend. Now I have given it to two friends as a gift. That's how much I love it.

    • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? This is just what I pictured.
    • How accurate was the on site description of the product? There's no need for much description, for the Cake Doctor says it all.
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. I received the book in great condition. Brand new.
  • Never fail recipes

    Bought this for my mom and she uses it all the time. She's tried a lot of the recipes and they've all tasted great and everyone thought she made her cakes from scrtch.

  • Perfect for someone like me!

    I've been thinking about buying this book for a long time. Since I am a nervous baker, dessert at our house is usually something I buy from the grocery store bakery. This book is great for somebody like me, because even I can make a cake from a box. The ideas here include add-ins and ingredients I never would have thought of on my own. This will give me the chance to make home made desserts to serve to my guests. The recipes sound great and now that the weather is turning cool, I'm sure I'll be trying the book soon.
