Product Description


Lisa Slatter's helpful cookie recipe and baking tips are followed by 20 colourful designs using sugarpaste. You'll find pirates, witches, rabbits, snowmen, baby faces, fairy castles, clowns and wedding cakes - plenty of inspiration for many occasions.-Cakes & Sugarcraft This is Lisa's first book, and let it be the first of many. There are 20 fabulous cookies which can be used for every cake related special occasion you can think of, with pirate faces, bunnies, snowmen, wedding bells, baby faces, teddies, fairy castles, baby gros, a wedding cake and more. So get those tools out and make cookies as well as cakes.-Cake Craft & Decoration Most of us enjoy a cookie, but add some sugar paste and a splash of imagination and they become something quite different. Here are twenty ideas for decorating cookies and bringing your celebration table to life This is not a book of cookie recipes; there is just one at the beginning so you can get started right away without having to comb through your recipe books. There are ideas for different flavours however, and instructions on cutting out using cutters. On the last page are instructions on making faces, as many of the ideas use these. Each project contains a page-sized photo of the item, often with another variation beside it. The facing page tells you what equipment you need to own, the ingredients and quite detailed instructions. These do not feature staged photos, but I think that most of the projects are simple enough for a sugarcrafter who has mastered the basics to tackle. The challenge is going to be making them look as perfect as the pictures in this book! Choose from pirate, flower, butterfly, Easter duck and bunny, the inevitable teddy bear, Halloween witch, wedding cake, new baby and christening, and various Christmas project to name a few. All are detailed and quite gorgeous; eating them would be a shame but if you are like me you just hate to waste good food - a lovely and inexpensive addition to any sugarcrafter's If you love baking cookies, then this great little practical craft book by Lisa Slatter will provide you with plenty of inspirational ideas on how to decorate them. Decorated Cookies starts with an essential recipe for making your own cookies and outlines the equipment you'll need to create iced designs. The book then goes on to explore a wide variety of different cookie shapes, styles and designs you can create for all number of occasions, including Christmas, children's parties, weddings, new babies, Halloween, winter, romance or any other occasions. The designs are all very eye-catching and impressive, but there are step-by-step instructions provided to help you achieve the same effect on your cookies. Several of the designs, such as for the pirates, teady bears or clown cookies, involve making faces and there's a useful page at the back of the book with some excellent ideas on how to create realistic faces on cookies. It covers things like making a nose, eyes, cheeks and ears and is ideal for anyone wanting to decorate cookies with face designs. It's hard to pick a favourite design, and we're keen to try lots of them, but favourites include the Summer Sunflowers, Magical Butterfly, Winter Cheer, Christmas Spirit and Fairy An essential tool for bakers, this book includes instructions for making the cookies themselves (though ready-made cookies are also fine), notes on the equipment needed, and each project is accompanied by clear, step-by-step instructions and complete materials and tools lists. A great source of ideas and inspiration for anyone keen to make and design decorated cookies of their own.-Craft Focus

5.0 out of 5 stars Cookie heaven!! 15 May 2010
Cookies are the new trend and becoming very popular for weddings favours.

This book covers cookies for all sorts of occassions such as Christmas, Easter, Halloween, Christenings, Weddings and many more...

It's a great place to start if you're a beginner, as everything is explained very well and in great detail. Also, you don't need a cupboard full of equipment to make them - unlike some other books.

I escpecially loved the page on 'Making Faces' as once you know how to do this you can adapt it to make cookies for all sorts of themes and occassions.

If you're hooked on cookies or don't know where to start, then it's a must have!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 1 Jan 2011
By ker
From the information and other reviews I had expected this book to be aimed more at beginers and lots of tips for the 'newbie'. It is, I am sure, a good book for those more experienced but sadly not for me !

3.0 out of 5 stars Cool cookies! 7 Sep 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A great little book at a good price. There are some very good designs in this book (although some of them have SO much decoration, I wouldn't really want to eat one for fear of sugar overload!!)

The designs are varied and there are some good tips in the back on how to make faces on cookies, however, I would have preferred there to be some 'step by step' pictures. You only get to see photos of the finished cookies, which although are wonderful, would be much more achievable if there had been photos of the various stages of decoration.
