I gave this to my mother-in-law for Christmas (along with Wilton cake baking strips) and she was so excited about this book. There are tons of ideas in here and all start with a basic cake mix. There is a section towards the front of the book with colored pictures (probably about 100 small images) otherwise this is simply a printed book. Looking forward to having a sample of the first cake baked soon.

I was quite amazed when I opened that thick cook book and saw so many wonderful recipes. The color photos of each cake livens your taste buds, it does mine everytime I open it. I ordered both of her books, "The Cake Mix Doctor" and " The Cake Mix Doctor Returns", and I have only had them 4 weeks and have tried 5 recipes. They were easy and very pleasing to all. The strawberry cake, TO DIE FOR!!
I already frequently use 3 Cake Doctor books---the first Cake Doctor, The Chocolate Cake Doctor and The Dinner book. This newest addition features an update on some of the recipes from the First Cake Doctor book, streamlining and lowering the calorie count besides adding scores of new and innovative cakes and desserts. If anyone loves to bake, this is a great tool and reference for showcasing some wonderful cakes, especially if baking from scratch limits your experimentation. Everything starts with a cake mix----the results are fabulous as featured in many of the recipes and will be the best "go to" book when faced with the question of what to bake. Definitely add it to your kitchen references.
This is a must have cookbook and would be an excellent gift for a wedding shower! There are every kinds of cakes imaginable and something for everyone needing very few extra ingredients other than the basic cake mix. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes to bake cakes.
