I tried a recipe for 3-layer chocolate cake, which she said was "adapted" from Flo Braker's book. Followed the instructions meticulously. There was't nearly enough batter for 3 layers. I owned the Flo Braker book, so I checked. Found that the original recipe was for 2 layers in smaller pans. I made it again using Braker's instructions, which were easier, and it came out much better. I also tried Medrich's frosting and filling. They didn't come out right either.

This is not a book for people who do down-to-earth baking. The recipes probably work if your equipment and ingredients are exactly the same as Medrich's.
