4.0 out of 5 stars A Nice Collection of Decorated Cakes 20 Nov 2013
By Amazon Customer VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a collection of quite ambitious decorated cakes. If you have ever considered making a celebration cake, then this book is packed full of ideas, techniques and projects. There are plenty of themed cakes designs to choose from for many occasions. Some of the projects will require quite a bit of time and practice and perhaps some experience. There is plenty of information about equipment, ingredients and basic recipes for cake bases, icings and frostings before launching into the projects.

The content in the book is great, but if you are considering this in the Kindle ebook format, take note you can't increase the font size or zoom onto the page if you are reading it on a smart phone or smaller tablet. This means that sometimes the instructions are a little hard to read - especially if you are elbow deep in icing and trying to follow the instructions. There are a lot of photos which means that it takes a little while to load and is not really that well suited to a black and white only Kindle. This is a eBook best viewed on a larger tablet or PC. This is a book best read as a physical book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not great, done better elsewhere 13 July 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was really disappointed with this book as I had been hoping for so much more.

The descriptions and techniques are pretty standard stuff but better explained/photographed in other books (my favourite is "The Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating" by Autumn Carpenter).

With the projects there are step by step instructions but only three photos per project (which are quite small and not at all helpful to create the individual pieces).

It is an ok book but one I wish I hadnt bothered to get unfortunately.
