A chocolate-covered sequel to the first book, this book is all about dark chocolate, milk chocolate, and white chocolate layers, sheets, Bundts, and cupcakes. If you like chocolate, then you’re going to love this book. It is the same format as the first book with the postage-stamp photos of every recipe at the front, but it contains more Bundts, pounds, brownies and bars than the first book did.
Most popular recipes: Cookies and Cream Cake (my children’s favorite), Lemon Lovers’ White Chocolate Cake, Libbie’s Chocolate Amaretto Cake, Amazing German Chocolate Cake, and the Perfect Chocolate Cake, which I still bake every Christmas. Look at the brownie recipes, too, especially the Marbled Cream Cheese and Kahlua Brownies.
Why I wrote this book: I went on book tour with the first Cake Mix Doctor, and people were extremely happy to be baking with my easy recipes, but they clearly craved more chocolate. I thought I had been generous with a chapter of chocolatey recipes in the first book, but they wanted an entire book of chocolate cake!
Favorite cooking tip in the book: I show you how to candy citrus peel (lemon, orange, and lime), and turn it into an elegant, edible garnish for cakes.
