Toba Garrett's Cake recipes - Page 2

post #16 of 80
I'll be on the lookout!! Thanks!!

I can't believe some of the amazing things that I have learned from this board. I have been doing cakes for 20 years and some of the things that I read, I am like "why didn't I know that 20 years ago, my life would have been so much easier!!"

I am totally addicted to this board. I used to go to my scrapbooking board 100 times a day, guess I should go over there and check to see if anyone misses me!! icon_biggrin.gif

My Williams-Sonoma store here carries Dutch chocolate by Pernigotti; I couldn't find it anywhere here in stores. icon_confused.gif Check the back of the container; it will say the chocolate has been dutched, dutch processed, or something about alkalizing.

I finally started ordering Pernigotti dutch cocoa from www.chefshop.com (awsome site for goodies!). It's way cheaper than buying at W-S. I got 3 lb for 19.99 + s/h instead of a Hershey's-sized tub for $12... It's very reddish and wonderful smelling; I'm going to try it in some hot cocoa right now icon_smile.gif.

Okay, admittedly I am not looking right now for prices, but can anyone tell me roughly how much one of Toba Garrett's books costs? I have a hard time finding them around here, and it would be nice to have an idea of price so I can tell DH for Mother's day gifts ..... (oh, I am so bad! HE shouldn't be buying me gifts, MY CHILDREN should .... that's okay, 'cuz he likes it when I tell him what to get me ... fewer tears that way! LOL)

I love Toba Garrett's recipes - I think I got her Well Decorated cake (which includes most if not all recipes mentioned here) for 14.95. I was completely amazed with this book for the price. It's a good deal. I have only tried the Chocolate fudge and the Moist yellow and they are both fabulous. People who love chocolate, love the the fudge cake and people who love yellow but aren't so keen on chocolate love the yellow. The chocolate is definately super fudgy and chocolatey - the chewy tops remind me of a brownie. They are both extremely moist cakes, I don't understand how people can think scratch is not as moist as boxed. These recipes are just as moist if not more so as boxed. I don't use the dutch process cocoa because it's so expensive (and this is just a hobby), but I've used a mix of dutch process and reg that I found in the grocery store (for roughly the same price as reg cocoa) and it tastes wonderful.

Here are 2 more votes for Toba's chocolate fudge cake and moist yellow cake. They are the best!
Many supermarkets carry Droste cocoa, which is Dutched.
If you want to go bulk, you can get a 2.2lb bag of Callebaut cocoa from Chocosphere.com. It's $25.00 per bag plus shipping, but if you cost it out, you'll find that it's cheaper in the long run...especially if you use a lot of cocoa! icon_wink.gif

Ok, so maybe I paid less, I can't remember now, but trust me, she has some AWESOME recipes in there. Evrything I've tried has been out of this world, and i've only tried about a quarter of the recipes.

I haven't used any of the techniques in the book simply because I haven't had the time. With that said, it is still worth it just for the recipes- trust me!

Thanks all.
Is her high yield yellow cake the same as the moist yellow cake?
post #24 of 80
From my understanding the high yield cake is more like like a pound cake. This is how its listed in her book.

Thank you, Tammy. I used to get the Jessica's Biscuit catalog until we moved last spring. I KNEW there was a catalog I was missing! (Hubby wants to "reduce the excess" we have; has thrown away a lot of books/catalogs/flyers I had for ideas & inspiration since the move. He might have to be spanked! icon_twisted.gif ) I'll have to give them a try.

Happy Baking,

Odessa

I ordered her "Professinal Cake Decorating Book" from Jessica's Biscuit's website and got it for a very reasonable price!! I think it was $35?? Way less than the list price of $65. This book is awesome...kinda thin but when you open it is more like a text book....very informative!

You may also want to check out your local public library to see if they carry it (the older books, not the new one).
