Review: Who doesn't  love cake? Well actually, there's probably quite a few people who don't love cake.  But this book is for those people (like myself) who do love cake and you like to bake but either have very little time or you're not so flash in the kitchen.

The recipes in this book are designed to be quick and easy so that anyone can use them and anyone can make them.  I found the instructions quite easy and straight-forward to follow.  All of the ingredients are fairly obtainable too so there won't be any surprise exotic ingredients nobody has ever heard of before.

The pictures in this book are amazing.  I was watering at the mouth as I read through all the recipes and then the pictures of some of them looked so nice. I assure you, you will not flick through this book without wanting to make at least one of the cakes.  I would have liked to see a picture of the Zebra cake but I'll have to make it myself to see how it looks.

A lot of recipes seemed to be very interesting, the cakes were quite different to the normal array of cakes.  Some of the more interesting ones being coca-cola chocolate cake and a zebra cake.  There were of course a selection of more normal cakes too so really there was something to please everyone.

If you're into baking and love cakes then definitely check out Cake Keeper Cakes it is worth a read or even a flick through.

    You will find many theories on why and what happens to the pancreas in
    kind 1. It can be believed to become a
    viruse that attacks it at some point. There are actually additional
    cases of type 1 in states that have cold weather.
    These people today are often insulin dependent and must inject insulin sometimes up to 6 times each day.
    The pancreas does not make any (or very little) insulin.
    In type two, it really is normally diagnosed just after
    the age of 35, but can develop earlier. With this type there are actually 2 things that will
    come about. The pancreas will be making plenty of insulin but the body is
    not using it correctly (this is insulin resistance) or the pancreas is not making enough insulin.
    Men and women with variety two ordinarily must take some sort or oral meds,
    but some take insulin, and some take both. You will discover
    some sort 2's that may manage their disease with diet plan and exercise for several years. Both types of diabetes might be genetic. Both types are caused by malfunctions on the pancre
