This book has been the source of all the birthday cakes I have baked over the last 18 months. The instructions are really clear, with helpful diagrams. The choice of characters here has something to suit all age groups and both boys and girls. I've been praised each time one of the cakes appears! Thanks Debbie Brown, you're a star!

5.0 out of 5 stars These lovable cakes are a kids dream! 18 July 1999
By A Customer
I've just found this book after a year of using her other book to make my child a Snoopy cake plus others. These are truely amazing cakes that your child will thank you for. Just to see your childs eyes light up when you present them with a cake of their favourite character makes all your efforts worth while.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 1 Feb 2013
By I. Darren TOP 1000 REVIEWER
There cannot be a parent out there who has, at least once, wished they could make their own character cake for a child's birthday or other special occasion. Not everybody is so gifted as to have the "magic fingers" to do this at a blink of an eye. Maybe this book goes towards changing that?
Here, in a relatively slim volume, author Debbie Brown seeks to show that with a little patience and effort it is possible. What could be better? An even more personalised character cake for your child that will please them even more to know that you made it, rather than picked one up at a local store. In many ways it is hard to believe that it is achievable, especially when you consider how slim this book is. But it is!
You are dropped directly into "cooking school" from the introduction. Straight away you are given a concise boot camp for the basic recipes and techniques required for making any of the cakes shown in the book. Don't like the characters shown? With not much work and a bit of thought you can surely make your own. Fads come and go and despite this book's age the core knowledge remains the same. To today's child Fireman Sam, The Wombles, Sonic the Hedgehog, Rupert and Babar might be old, unknown concepts yet invariably they will be popular once again and once you have understood the core building essentials the character world is really your oyster.
It is pleasing that the author has not assumed a high degree of cooking competency in the reader. This is really a book for the average person. Lots of pictures and diagrams show you the necessary processes from making the basic cake mixture, through making hands, faces and bodies and up to the very small fine tuning at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really lovely.... 27 Dec 2007
This book has 19 lovely designs to choose from. It has a section on basic recepies and techniques used throughout the book which is very detailed. Has also a chart with quantities of materials needed for each design. Each design has a list of materials end equipment needed to make it, or the modeling part of each design precise weigh is given so caracter come very proportioned. I very much reccomend this book to all fellow sugarcrafters. God bless
