The children loved just looking at the books and imagining the outcomes but the cooks (!) were really impressed by the clear presentation and step by step guide.
Better than any others we've seen. Shame it was produced before Bob the Builder arrived on the scene but it does include Postman Pat, Noddy and Thomas etc.

I have made several of these cakes, and although they may never be as perfect as the photographs in the book, family and friends are always impressed! The photos are clear, and the instructions are easy to follow - with the right equipment, and this book, you cannot fail to create a masterpiece in the eyes of your child!

Format: Hardcover
This is a book for those who want accuracy in their novelty cake decorating. There are a good number of decent size colour photographs, which take you through various stages in the decorating process for each cake, along with clear written instructions.
The book centres around such well loved characters as Betty Boop, the "Forever Friends" bears and Thomas the Tank Engine, to name just a few.
Each of the cakes illustrated is extremely accurate to the original character depicted, and a great deal simpler to contruct than one might think.
At last, a book on the subject which lets us amatuers aspire to a higher standard of such decorating. A "Must have" novelty cake decorating book!

What a great little book, lots of different ways to decorate cakes for children. I bought this book as my grandson was going to be 1 and the only time he sits still is when Postman Pat is on, made the PP van for his party, everyone loved it, I found a PP figure in my candle tin from when his father was into PP, 20 odd years ago.

Wonderful book. Step by step instructions to make fantastic cakes which are easy to follow and come with great pictures. Good selection of characters though these are mainly less recent ones. Noddy, the smurfs, thomas the tank, postman pat, forever friends are just a few of them

I ordered this for the postman pat cake, and made it for my 2 year old. He loved it! Some lovely cakes, but maybe suited to the older person, as a lot of the characters are from the 80's/90's! My children didn't know who snoopy was or some of he country companions!

This book is fantastic. Step by step pictures show all stages of each cake design. Various techniques shown includind use of edible pens and painting on sugarcraft. Designs come out exactly as pictures as instructions are precise and clear. Well deserved 5 stars.
