5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worth the money buying this book
I bought this book after buying 'The Essential Guide to Cake Decorating' (also published by Murdoch) and would definitely recommend it. There are cakes for all levels of skill, and the instructions are clear. The only thing I would add is that when making sugarpaste, it is easier to mix it with a palette knife, as it sticks like mad to a wooden spoon and is quite messy...

3.0 out of 5 stars Beginner's Guide to Cake Decorating (Murdoch Books)
Useful if you want to wet your appetite for cake decorating. There is some useful information, but I think you would need a more comprehensive volume if you want to undertake cake decorating in a more serious way.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth every penny, 6 Oct 2011
This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Cake Decorating (Murdoch Books) (Paperback)
This book was like my very own decorating bible. It was easy to follow and I kept going back to it for reference. I used to buy my coloured sugar paste for convenience but it is so easy to make your own and create unique colours.

4.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the cover!, 26 Dec 2013

This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Cake Decorating (Murdoch Books) (Paperback)
I have an older version of this that I've used for years but I lent it to a friend before Christmas and she hasn't been able to get it back to me (no fault of her own) so I used some of my birthday money to buy this one. It isn't quite as good as my original one but only because it doesn't have as much information, ie, cake ideas, run-out work and so on but it has very good instructions on basic techniques, it's simple to use and easy to understand. Very pleased with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but wish it had more pages..., 9 Mar 2012
This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Cake Decorating (Murdoch Books) (Paperback)
Its a good book for beginners but it would have been better if it have more pages and more modern cakes samples(designs)in it.
