    Hi Lindsay
    I bought your Simply Beautiful Homemade cakes book, you had a lot of good recipes in there. I notice that the recipes that I find on Facebook you do not have in the book
    I was very disappointed in not being able to find the recipes I wanted not in it. Do you have any other books with those recipes that I can buy off Amazon. Or maybe you sell them yourself.
    Please get back to me

    1. Lindsay

      I’m sorry you were disappointed. I mention in this post that the book includes all new recipes, not things already on the site. Most people actually want to buy recipes that aren’t already available for free. Unfortunately, I don’t have any other books at this time.

    I was searching for a buttercream recipe and stumbled across your blog. After trying a couple more recipes, Life, Love & Sugar has been my go to. I just had to buy your cookbook!

    I’ve made several of your recipes & they’ve turned out great. However, just recently I can’t print/use any recipes because the font is about a 4 & the advertising at the bottom of the first page blocks out several steps. For instance, the Spice Cake recipe’s steps 12-18 are blocked out. I guess I won’t be able to continue receiving the recipes if I don’t have all of the instructions.

    1. Lindsay

      Hmm, I’d probably do the caramel coconut filling as a filling in the middle of the cupcakes. Then I might top the cupcakes with caramel frosting (you’d probably need to increase that recipe to cover them all) and then maybe drizzle them with some chocolate ganache. Maybe even add a little toasted coconut to the top for decoration. If you use the full recipe for the cake, you’d probably end up with about 24 cupcakes, so you might also need additional filling. Hard to know for sure without trying it out. I hope that helps!

    Hi, Lindsay! Is your book homemade cakes come with another cover? I wanted to order from bookdepository.com but the cover of the book shown on the website was different from the one sold on amazon. Can you please clarify my doubt as I would bery much love to order your book. Thanks! Happy easter!

    1. Lindsay

      I can’t guarantee anything, because I’m not real familiar with that site. But I do know that there is another cover floating around. My publisher originally had a different photo being used prior to us choosing the cover. If it’s a grey background with a pink cake, it should be ok.

    I just received your book in Greece. I think i’m in heaven.
    Keep doing what you’re doing, and we’ll keep follow your recipes.
    Best Wishes!!!

    1. Lindsay

      I have shared a few cakes from the book on the site to promote the book, but otherwise the recipes in the book are all new/different.

  13. Elizabeth

    Wow Linsay I am Greatfull meeting your website and found the best cake receipt.. OMG. THANK YOU LOVE from INDONESIA

  14. Charity

    I realized most of my pins on Pinterest were from your site, so I started looking through your blog and really enjoyed everything on here. I saw you had a cake recipe book so added it to my wishlist and got it for my birthday! I’ve made your vanilla layer cake and the cherry chocolate chip ice cream cake and they were both a huge hit and delicious! I’ve been baking for 23 years and been constantly searching for the best and easiest recipes and your vanilla cake is a definite keeper! Can’t wait to try more of them…after my diet ends! ???? May God bless you and your journey with your family. Praying!  

    1. Lindsay

      Thanks so much Charity! Glad to hear you’ve been enjoying the recipes – both in the book and on the site!

      Thank you for the prayers as well!

    1. Lindsay

      I am told by my publisher that they ship internationally. I would check with your local bookstore and see if they can order it for you. I wish I could be more help. 🙁

    1. Lindsay

      Hi Tiffany! I loved your review – thank you! Cherry and almond is TOTALLY underrated, I agree! 🙂 I’m so glad you were able to find it at the library – I didn’t know they’d carry it. That’s awesome!

    Hi , i’m a big fan from Brazil. Pre-ordered the book online at amazon and allready receive it !!!! I’m veeery happy ! Question.

Whats the diference between them ?? Witch one do you Think is the best ??? Why???
    Thanks a lot and big kiss frio Brazil
    Christiana

    1. Lindsay

      Thanks so much – I hope you enjoy the book! I’d say the recipes are somewhat similar. I switched up the one in the book to bake at 350 degrees so the actual baking is a little different. I’d say the one in the book is a bit firmer, but they are both very moist and delicious. 🙂

  20. Sarah

    My husband ordered a copy of your book for me as a surprise — it arrived today, just in time for the study break/soon to be Christmas holidays. I was absolutely thrilled! I love it, and I can’t wait to start trying recipes. It is truly a beautiful book — even my husband agreed that all your cakes are gorgeous pieces of art 🙂

    1. Lindsay

      Aww that’s so sweet of him Sarah! And the perfect surprise! 😉 I’m so glad you love it – thank you!!

  21. Shaindle

    I am a home baker and a new reader to your blog but had so much success with the few recipes I have tried that I immediately headed off to Amazon to order your book. It arrives tomorrow! I can’t wait to start baking,.

    1. Lindsay

      That’s so great to hear Shaindle! I’m glad you’ve been enjoying the recipes and I hope you love the book! 🙂

  22. Alison Haveman

    I got my book today in the mail a day early! Yaaaaay! It is so beautifully written! I just love it! I can’t wait to try out one of these recipes! Congratulations Lindsey!!! 🙂

  23. Stephanie

    Congrats on the book release! If the inside of the book is as beautiful as the cover, then it will be amazing! Can’t wait to own a copy.

  24. Catherine Smith

    I woke up this morning to an email from Amazon saying it’s on the way! Can’t wait to come home from work tomorrow and go thru it! I think first will be the cinnamon roll layer cake! 🙂

  25. Nettie Moore

    Lindsay, You are such an artist, I can dreamily stare at your cakes anytime! I followed Challenge Dairy, looks like the Instagram is down right now, I will check back!

      Thanks so much Nettie! 🙂 I think the instagram should be working now, give it one more try when you get a chance.

  26. Kelly Lynn's Sweets and Treats

    Yay!! Congrats! I have been a long time follower of your blog and am always in awe of the gorgeous cakes and desserts you make! I’m sure your cookbook is every bit as amazing. ????

    1. Catalina Martin

      Just made your Raspberry Chocolate cake – followed instructions to a tee! Plan to share  it with daughter and son in law; and niece and her husband for Valentine’s Day. I think it came out great!  I recently retired after 20+yrs in HR and this is so much more fun – cooking for the busy moms in my family! 

  27. Renee Gideon

    Congratulations! I am so excited to see everything in the cookbook – I know it will be amazing, just like all of your other recipes! 🙂
