It is an older book. In the moving I have been doing, this book went missing. I had to purchase another copy. The chocolate chiffon cake is great.

AMAZING book. I can not believe some of these deserts! They are so yummy! The book is written in a very easy to follow way that makes these recipes do'able even for the baking layman.

This book is a tour in amazing desserts that can seem simple and common place until you display or plate them with a more artistic flair. Have fun with food and you can create amazing looking items out of the everyday. There is nothing overly elaborate about these desserts yet they look fin nominal.

These recipes are simply incredible. Anything or anyone touched by Wolfgang is usually transformed.

It is true, some of the desserts in this book are overdone and difficult for the home baker. However, there are several that I enjoyed making that weren't that hard. A real standout was the strawberry shortcake. It was the best I have ever eaten, and I've eaten a lot of shortcake. The fruit compote that went on the cakes especially was marvelous and very easy to do -- just strawberries, cinnamon sticks (taken out after cooking) and sugar. Baking from scratch is time consuming and can be tricky, because it's really just chemistry that tastes good. However, everything I tried from the book turned out fine. Perhaps those who had problems tried different recipes than I did.

I just bought this book for my collection, after having tried some of Mary's desserts, a while ago (a long while ago). I earn my living, like Mary Bergin, making desserts and taking some of the blame for accumulated pound around the waist line.
The recipes in this book may not be easy for the home cook/baker, but it should not stop anybody from trying. Your friend and family will elevate you to saithood just for a piece of Mary's Pumpikin Pie or Pecan Pie. And love you even a bit more for the Austrian Chocolate Cake. It may not be Austrian (I am Austrian) but then who cares after having tried it.
I will write again after having tried some more of the recipes, and include my customers comments. See ya Mary.....

I just ordered this book after using photocopies of several recipes given to me by a friend. For the past several years, I have made the pumpkin pie in this book at Thanksgiving. Family and friends always ask, "You're going to make that pumpkin pie, arent' you?" I'm afraid if I say no, they'll stop coming. The recipes aren't "easy" but then, culinary "art" never is. Buy this book if you want to become "known" for your desserts.
This is TRULY the most used cookbook I have ever owned!! It is completely falling apart, I have used it so much. If you buy it, it is worth is just for the apple pie, chocolate bread pudding, sticky buns, and brownies alone!!! I haven't tried everything in here yet (some of them are a little too difficult for a novice like myself - like the opera cake and tiramisu) but it is a MUST have for anyone who loves to impress people with their baking!
