My Verdict on Cake Book for Windows 8

Finally, in my conclusion, I would like to say that this free Windows 8 cake recipe app is quite good. Though it has some noticeable shortcomings. Like it doesn’t have a large database of recipes; you will see just 6 cake recipes in a particular category. Also, no video tutorials are available and there’s no way to search for a particular recipe. I also felt that it could have been better if more pictures were available depicting the method of preparation for each recipe. However, the available recipes are simple and easy to understand. If you want to prepare cakes at home, you could give this app a try.
