“A good baking book can make you feel like you've stepped into the ultimate bakery, complete with rows of perfectly crisp cookies, trays of oversized, fruit-studded muffins, just-frosted layer cakes, and the smell of fresh bread hot out of the oven.  Barricelli successfully transports readers into the workings of his popular bakery.” -Publishers Weekly
