5.0 out of 5 stars Best, 9 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is the best book yet especially for beginners. As a teacher of sugar craft I am always looking for good reference books, and this one has lots of information not found in other publications. The lay out is far better than any of his other books, more step by step pictures make it easy to follow. GREAT BOOK. Terry, Bradford College.

5.0 out of 5 stars best on piping, 15 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the best books I have seen on technical skills. It is expensive but very worthwhile book and is great value on this site as the retail price is £35 elsewhere It is a very thick book with everything you need to know about piping from simple designs to complicated over piping. I would recommend this book for students and I will be using it in my classes at college as the bible of cake decoration. If you are interested in what the royal family had for their celebrations there is a lot of information and pictures of royal cakes and especially the royal coach is incredible.

4.0 out of 5 stars usful book, 15 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As usual Alan has pulled it off again although he has steered away from flowers and gone down a different road with this book, it has lots of useful information and ideas. The only criticism I would make is don't follow the instructions for covering sugar past cakes it is out of date,time consuming and wast of sugar past. You should never cover all the board just the outer rim. Cakes can foment if stood on sugar past and will be inedible. Many books and DVDs show this method, and it is wrong don't do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars great as usual, 15 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Alan Dunn is one of the best buys when it comes to flower making especially his new titles produced in the last 2 or 3 years. He is a good demonstrator so if you get the chance to see him I would recommend you do. I use his books when teaching for templates and hand outs and find him invaluable on my book shelf.

1.0 out of 5 stars not recomended, 15 Sept. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would not recommend this DVD for beginners as the covering of cake is neither the easy, quick or up to date way of covering a cake. I purchased to use in class when teaching at college as visual aid. I found it a unhelpful and incorrect way to do this exercise.
