What's your favorite book on cakes/baking that you rely on for consistently good results?

I guess it might be time to update the discussion LAMonkeygirl started 15 years ago on your favorite cookbook for cakes/baking, since they've been a lot of cookbooks published since then. I wanted to ask the members, and I guess the home bakers in particular, which cookbook on cakes/baking do they find themselves turning to for consistently delicious results? I know personally, you may try one recipe from a cookbook which tastes fabulous, yet try another recipe which is very ordinary. Since I (or anyone else I presume) don't want to waste my time and money finding the good recipes by trial and error, which cookbook have you found in your experience (the cookbook could be new (in print) or older, doesn't matter, if it's good, I'll hunt it down) that you know all the recipes turn out delicious cakes? I don't mind if there are some show stopper restaurant worthy recipes in it (occasionally I like to make one), I want something that a home cook can achieve, but that is a bit classy as well. I don't want something that is over simplified and dumbed down for a child for example, nor do I want to spend two days on a cake which I just want to enjoy with my afternoon coffee. I appreciate any advice. Thanks all.
