YOU Best Recipes: Bakes editor Carmen Petersen on this great new offering from the Brand Extension division.

YOU Best Cakes "I love baking! It's so much fun measuring, mixing and sifting and then there's the wonderful aroma of a cake baking in the oven... "But this was not always the case. I used to worry I would get something wrong and the cake would flop. That changed a few years ago when I started working in the YOU test kitchen. Food editor Carmen Niehaus asked me to bake a sponge cake and I was a little worried because it can be a difficult cake to perfect.

Be sure to read the recipes in the magazine carefully and you will be amazed at how well you do

"She saw I was nervous and said I should read the recipe carefully, follow it step by step and nothing would go wrong. She was right!I'll never forget when she complimented me on an excellent cake!

"My love of baking started then. Carmen's advice was so helpful I am sharing it with readers who love the idea of baking but are nervous the cake will be a disaster.

"Be sure to read the recipes in the magazine carefully and you will be amazed at how well you do. There's also a useful section of basic mixing methods to help you get started.
