5.0 out of 5 stars Great inspirations 20 Oct 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A lovely book, well designed with beautiful pictures, illustrating each step. As a student of sugar craft I thought it was well presented and could be followed by either the beginner or more experianced sugar crafter. I liked the variety of deigns, and the extras to compliment the cake - such as cup cakes and biscuits. Can also be adapted to your own tastes. Tips, help you along your way and I was pleased with the Mad Hatter tea party cake that I produced from the book. Lovely fresh ideas.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful cake designs with so much more! 18 Oct 2010
This is a lovely book which not only gives you great cake designs but tips for theming your party but also added extras of cookies, cupcakes and mini cakes.

I have been really inspired by this book and read it through numerous times - the designs are well explained and seem easy enough to follow and some great new techniques that I am keen to learn.

I have quite a collection of cake decorating books and I think this book is a really good find.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! 4 Mar 2011
By JoJo
I have quite a collection of cake decorating books now, but this has quickly become my favourite. All of the designs are beautiful, contemporary, and easily adaptable. I love the fact that every main cake has little cupcakes or cookies to go with it. The instructions are clear and concise, and I've found them very easy to follow. I have been making cakes for about a year, but I think this would be good for complete beginners too. The equipment lists are good; not too over the top, or too basic.
The first cake I made from this book was the daisy cake from the front cover and it looked absolutely stunning! I'm planning on attempting every cake from this book at some point, and that is something I've never been able to say about any other cake book I've bought.

4.0 out of 5 stars Grand designs! 30 Sep 2011
This is a beautiful book which contains very specific instructions to create some spectacular cakes. As a beginner who wants to learn more about cake decorating, it is just what I wanted in terms of having some easier and some more complicated designs. However I do think that if you are just an occasional cake maker like me, the majority of the designs require quite a bit of specialist equipment such as specific cutters, moulds, lustre glazes etc which are quite expensive and tricky to obtain - you would need to be a professional to have all of them readily available in your kitchen. Also, the pic of the children making daisy cakes on the back of the book is very sweet, but probably unrealistic - the cake designs in this book will require time, patience and a steady hand and you'll probably be batting your kids out of the kitchen. Much better to find a book specifically aimed at baking with kids if this is what you are looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Book! 29 Sep 2011
The cakes inside this book are absolutely beautiful and aspirational. Although they look amazing there are plenty of hints, tips and instructions. I haven't attempted to recreate any of the cakes exactly, but I have been inspired by some of the designs and love to dip in and out of the book for ideas. I would recommend it for anyone who loves making and decorating cakes.
