5.0 out of 5 stars let them eat beautiful cakes
Cake decoration, of all the many culinary skills, seems to be advancing at an extraordinary rate. In times past, a birthday cake would have been graced by a few thin coloured candles; a wedding cake by some plain white icing, a few twirls and a little plastic bride and groom. Fast forward and cakes have evolved into a high art: be it a Thomas the Tank Engine for a five...

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book
Am a little bit disappointed in this book. I expected far more recipes than are actually in it. In my opinion its more of a cake decorating book.

This review is from: Bake Me, I'm Yours... Chocolate: Over 25 Excuses to Indulge (Hardcover)
Cake decoration, of all the many culinary skills, seems to be advancing at an extraordinary rate. In times past, a birthday cake would have been graced by a few thin coloured candles; a wedding cake by some plain white icing, a few twirls and a little plastic bride and groom. Fast forward and cakes have evolved into a high art: be it a Thomas the Tank Engine for a five year old from your supermarket or a fancy cup cake from the patisserie. Celebrating that special occasion just got more memorable and more expensive.

If you've ever wondered how it's done and want a step by step guide that doesn't require a lifetime of artistic endeavour or a major investment in tools of the trade, Tracey Mann is prepared to let you in on all the tricks to wow your friends and more than likely start a new hobby.

"Bake me I'm yours...chocolate" is by no means comprehensive but it is the perfect introduction to working with chocolate and livening up your home baking. It is more adult orientated than kids party so less quirky, more sophisticated. This is predominately not a recipe book, although if you need to know how to bake a sponge cake, cupcake or brownie it's here. There are some delicate and beautiful show hows on making orchids and blossom, Christmas tree hangings and columns of rolled chocolate, amongst many others. There are also enough pictures to guide as well as tempt... Some of these take a bit of practice but somehow knowing how they start and how they're built may demystify the end result for you but won't fail to amaze the recipients.

A high quality and straightforward guide.

Be warned, you may never be able to home bake again without readying the chocolate paste, scissors, paintbrush and piping bag, for decorating action!
