5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Marvellous, 28 Nov 2008
This review is from: Romantic Cakes (Hardcover)
This book is amazing, inspiration from beginning to end, whether you decide to match the cakes exactly or take parts from each it's fab.

The tuition section is very clear, although I will definately have to build up my skills and practice for much of it.

The sponge recipe is the best i've ever had and divides perfectly as indicated in the guidelines for differing cake tin sizes.

I would reccommend this to anyone looking for contemporary cake, cookie and cupcake ideas or just for a good look through if you love cakes generally.

3.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately dissappointed, 28 Nov 2008
This review is from: Spectacular Cakes (Hardcover)
I am afraid to say I was a little dissappointed by this book, I went through a mad period of buying cake decorating books earlier this year and this was definitely the poorest.

I think the problem could be that I bought both of Peggy Porchen's books in the same delivery and was amazed by these, it could also be partly down to personal taste.

I felt the designs in this book on the whole were a little dated and chintzy by comparison.

The theory and technique parts however were very good.
