It involves a lot of time to prepare. It is good, but for busy people, a recipe that takes less time is better.
Preparation time is more than 30 minutes. You have to have done this recipe many other times to take only 30 minutes to do. Also there are very few recipes that ask for Cream of Tatar. Once used, it remains in the cupboard for a year. I have seldom come a cross recipes requiring Cream of Tatar.
