Mich Turner's Cake Masterclass: The Ultimate Step-by-step Guide to Cake Decorating Perfection
Mich Turner's Cake Masterclass: The Ultimate Step-by-step Guide to Cake Decorating Perfection
by Mich Turner
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £20.40

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book and stunning ideas, 18 May 2011
I was very sceptical about buying this book after reading the reviews on this page. However I only have one other Mich Turner book, Fantastic Cakes, and so decided to purchase this one too. It really is a beautiful book, lovely illustrations and 'chat' from Mich. She keeps to her word of producing stunning, classic, elegant and the best cakes around. Well worth every penny. I aspire to her.

Good books for short-cuts - only problem is finding the cutters ! The book is well illustrated and good clear pictures


Delia's Vegetarian Collection

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, 12 Jun 2010
I borrowed this book from a friend who was coming for a vegetarian dinner party, being a serious meat eater myself, and ended up buying it. Its a fab book, beautifully presented and Delia as always is total reliable. The recipes are all very interesting and I had a real problem choosing which ones to make because there are so many and all look (and tasted) delicious. Would seriously recommend to veggies and meat eaters !

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but not for the faint hearted, 12 May 2010
This is a beautiful book and a pleasure to own. The photography is excellent and the presentation and quality of production is very good too. However its not for the faint hearted because all the recipes have many processes but the end result is great once you've practiced a few times. I've done the one on the cover and it was delicious and a real show off dessert but it took practice. I was inspired after a cookery programme to do more than 'puddings' - this certainly hits the mark !

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing recipes, 7 Oct 2009
I am a keen cake decorator and baker and recently have had problem with a maderia recipe for a 10" tin. I saw this book and thought it looked lovely and innovative and that it also had recipes in it. However the recipes are awful and I am very disappointed with the fact that this is supposedly from an author who demonstrates and gives classes and write books etc etc. Its such a waste of money.
