5.0 out of 5 stars
Imaginative, delicious, beautiful and realistically achievable, 17 Oct 2011
This is not only a beautiful book to look at and salivate over but you really can achieve the same results as the pictures! Quite an achievement, if like me, your creations usually taste good but don't look so great! My children used to insist I buy birthday cakes, but now they just flick through this book and chose what they want. The sweetie cake is particularly admired by normally unimpressed and picky teenagers! An example of how comprehensive and easy to follow the recipies are is that my 13 year old decided to make her first cake, while I was away, and produced a perfect victoria sponge following the recipe in this book! My only criticism is that the book is too nice to have in the kitchen, especially when you are cooking!
