Very disappointed, I agree with previous reviews, this is just a book made of his previous books. This SHOULD be mentioned in the description, this is not the first time this has happened to me. Having said this though if you do not own any of his books then this is probably a good buy.
Definitely a book for the beginner very basic (although the instructions are clear and well presented). Not many pictures of finished cakes or recipes. If you already have several books covering the basics of cake decorating I would not bother to purchase this one. If you are a beginner and want something to start you off then this may very well fit the bill.
I had seen this book for sale many times on ebay mistakingly thinking that if there were so many for sale that maybe it wasn't very good. I finally ordered it and was glad to find I had been wrong this is a great book with clear detailed instructions and pictures of various sugar flowers using a small group of cutters which if you don't already have are easily obtainable. There is also a wonderful cake section demonstrating how best to show off these flowers. I absolutely loved this book and thought it was one of the best sugar flower books I had purchased in a long time.
