The wraparound cover is khaki green. The title is in black and red lettering above and below a color drawing of a woman wearing a lavender blouse and white apron while holding a mixing bowl and spoon. A can of KC Baking Powder is on her right and a color drawing of a chocolate-filled cream cake is in the forefront. The back cover has The Power Behind The Dough in black above a color drawing of a can of KC Baking Powder (25ยข). At the bottom is Purest And Best in black with And underlined in red. The front end page has "Do Not Be Swindled In Your Own Home -- A 'Fake Test' Exposed" which describes how inferior baking powders contain a speck of dried albumen, which has no value, and their agents will visit homes to show that their product is better because it foams more than baking powder without albumen. Readers are warned: "Do not be deceived." The back end page has the KC Baking Powder Guarantee. The first page is a promotion for The Cook's Book, edited by Mrs. Janet McKenzie Hill of the Boston Cooking School, followed by "Why KC Baking Powder." Interspersed with the recipes is additional information about baking powder and baking tips. There are recipes for breads, muffins, cakes, biscuits and jelly roll.
