Back on the Baking van wagon - The Baking Bible

So, this came yesterday in the mail….


Which means that my new kitchen will go into over time starting December 1st.  I had the pleasure of participating in the “making” of this book.  Rose was gracious to reached out to some of the bakers bloggers who participated in the very succesful Rose’s Heavenly Cakes bake-along in order to help her beta test some of the recipes she was creating, which are now included in this beautiful cookbook (her 10th!).

And while my dream is to see my name in print someday [under the author heading]… nothing beats the giddy feeling i got when I read the acknowdegement section of the book and found my name, along with my fellow Alpha Bakers, printed in black and white…


Now the Alpha Bakers are gearing up to start a new bake-along, one that will take about 2 years to complete as we take on the challenge of baking every single recipe on this “bible”.  With all-new recipes for the best cakes, pies, tarts, cookies, candies, pastries, breads, and more, this magnum opus draws from Rose’s passion and expertise in every category of baking (oh yes, I’m going full blown with this one!) - Challenge ACCEPTED!

You can find all about this new baking group “Rose’s Alpha Bakers” in Rose’s blog.  Along with the requirements and contact information if you are interested in signing up.  Hurry, its filling up fast and they are trying to keep it to a small group.

In the meantime, I will go back to drinking a nice glass of wine and continue to mark the book with all the recipes that I want to make - which happen to be ALL OF THEM!

Side IMPORTANT Note: As with the Heavenly Cake Baker post, The Baking Bible (TBB) future posts will not have any recipes on them, due to restrictions in sharing the recipes placed by the publisher. Most will be my experience in baking that weekly’s recipe and sharing pictures of my final products as well as my taste test opinion. If you want to follow along, you can simply purchase the book, which frankly is a great additon to any bakers cookbook libray.
