Hello Fellow Bakers!
I must say that I adore you Rose! I have been a devotee of your recipes, and have ALL of your books, starting with the paperback “Romantic Cakes & Pastries” (I believe that is the title-forgive me, I am not at home to get it off the shelf.) you authored in the late eighties/early nineties. I soon found The Cake Bible, which I have used so much that it is in need of binding repair! I appreciate your exacting details and all the tips and substitutions you offer. Your skill and passion as a food scientist and artist is what gives me the confidence in your recipes and techniques; if you accepted applications for Apostles, I would be one! Thank you for sharing your knowledge with us, your faithful readers and fellow bakers.
I have had so many requests for making the cakes/pies/breads from your books, and so I thank you for giving me the tools to go with my blessed talent to make such wonderful delights. I plan to make the Cordon Rose Cheesecake for my Christmas dessert.
