Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for Readers' Favorite

Patty Gaynor offers readers a delicious journey into chocolate. "Cakes By Sunshine: The Chocolate Collection" is a chocoholic’s dream book. The recipes are laid out in an easy to read format and the directions are easy to follow. The ingredients are generally common to the kitchens of most people. She has included colored photos that will make you drool for a bite. At least one of the chocolate cake recipes won first prize at the county fair.

Patty comes from a long line of great cooks. As a child she preferred to be in the kitchen than playing outside. Even her pesky brothers were excited when she made brownies or one of her delicious cakes.

This is a cookbook for everyone, from seasoned cooks to those with little or no experience. Gaynor provides explicit directions and even substitutions. You no longer have an excuse for not baking for your family. While it is much easier to pick up a prebaked cake at the store the taste just isn’t the same. Your family will love knowing that you baked the cake yourself and added lots of love to it.

I collect cookbooks and this is the latest addition to my shelf! "Cakes By Sunshine: The Chocolate Collection" will make a great gift for your favorite cook. I highly recommend this book.
