The best butter cream Decorating book that every Cake artist and decorator should own 30 April 2014
By Jewels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I own a lot of cake decorating books and consider myself a fairly decent cake artist.This book is the best book on decorating Butter cream icing that I own...That is saying a lot right there.There is a lot of photographs and illustrations for each Technique and cake in this book,The step by step decorating techniques are really step by step no guessing as to how to do each cake that is illustrated.My favorite chapter is the 50 fabulous projects.Some I have done my self in the past and went to decorating classes to learn so I was so delighted to see the Basket Weave cake that I have been doing for some time in this book. Broken down in easy to understand and easy techniques that anyone could understand.The 50 projects in the book are..Art Deco,Bamboo,Basket Weave,Birch,Bow and Swag,Calico,Chandelier,Cheetah,Cherry Blossoms,Chrysanthemum,Liming Roses,Combed Lavender,Confetti,Daises,Embroidered Tattoo,English Garden,Fairy Ring,Feathers,Gerbera Daisy,Golden Tassels,Henna Tattoo,Honey Bees,Horizontal Ruffle,Hydrangea,Jungle Leaves,Ladybugs,Lily of the Valley,Lotus Flower,Monogram,Nesting Birds,Ombre Rosettes,Paisley,Pansy,Peachy Rosettes,Pearls,Poppies,Roses and Ribbons,Rustic Finish,Sheep,Sprinkles,Strands of Pearls,Stylized Peacock,Sunflower,Sweet Dots,Timber,Vertical Ribbons,Vintage China,Violets,Winter Birds,and Zebra Stripes.Some one new to decorating can do a lot of these cakes.Others may be for some one with more skills than basic cake decorating.Anyway I really do recommend this book for anyone who wants to make beautiful cakes with butter cream.Why Butter Cream you may ask since Fondant seems all the rage? Well in my opinion a good cake decorator should be able to work in a variety of icing mediums and because Butter Cream is Back in again ! I find that if you can work with Butter Cream you can learn how to decorate in any cake medium if you really want to.So delighted that Carey Madden has come out with a book that I will be referring to often.. What a gem..Happy Cake Decorating everyone!

Beautiful Step by Step Pictures 27 May 2014
By Donna - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I love this book!!! I am a beginner cake decorator and I have learned so much and I am I just on the first chapter. I like the way the author breaks down information such as explaining what types of supplies you need and why you would use a certain type verses another. She also gives you hints on the side of the page that goes along with the information in the paragraph next to it. As I am reading, it feels like I am learning in a classroom. The pictures are soooooooo helpful!!!! I am a visual person and I need pictures. After reading and viewing the step by step pictures I feel very confident that I can make a beautiful cake.

Photos you want to bite into! 7 May 2014
By J. Elliot - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
I am lucky in that I am a regular at the bakery in NY where Carey practices her art, Two Little Red Hens, and have gazed into the display cabinet thinking I wish that I could do that! Well this book shows you how utilizing step by step easy to follow photographs, that make you feel like Carey is guiding your hands. A fondant cake is like a banana, peel off the pretty outside and discard so that you can get to the tasty innards. With buttercream, it's all deliciously edible with the only thing left over being the plate.

Best Ever 23 May 2014
By C. Charles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound Verified Purchase
I use SBMC or IMBC almost exclusively and this book is a godsend. I have been decorating cakes for over 12 yrs and this is THE must have book for beginners and pros. It's the most extensive book I've seen, tons of pictures and clear and consise directions. The projects are beautiful, easy to repeat and are something that you can actually make for real customers.
