3.0 out of 5 stars Not enough pictures for this dummy 2 Oct 2009
Format:Paperback
It is a useful book, however, seems to be written more for the American market and there are not enough pictures to show you what the cakes they are talking about look like, or to show you how to do things. There is a lot of information in the book, but as I said it's for the American market and gives the measurements for ingredients in cups and shows no weights.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sending it back 17 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased this book thinking that I would have a step by step guide to cake decorating. I got that, but with absolutely no picture instructions to go with it. I would have thought that a book which is named 'Cake Decorating for Dummies' would in fact show us 'Dummies' how to do what they are instructing. Very disappointed :-(

3.0 out of 5 stars For the new cake maker 28 July 2013
By JamesDS
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Looks are deceiving. A lot of text and far to few photographs. Would avoid giving as a present as quite disappointing.
