5.0 out of 5 stars Novelty Cakes Really Made Easy! :)
Really good book for beginners! It tells you what you need to make them and also gives recipes for cake mixes in the front so you use the best type of cake for the one you are making! Also shows general decorating skills and different icing recipes. There are 35 cakes altogether - something suitable for every occasion and the instructions are clear and easy to follow...

There are some great cakes and ideas in this book. I make cakes for a living and feel this book is more aimed at begginers than experienced sugarcrafters (unlike Debbie Brown's books that I feel are more for experienced decorators and beginners can find daunting). If you want to make cakes for your kids birthdays then I would recommend this to have in your collection.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quick & easy Cakes, 13 April 2007
This is the 2nd book of Carol's that I bought, and it continues to spur me on. The directions are easy to follow, end results are amazing. It HELPS if you really ARE interested in making novelty cakes!

I have just purchased my 4th book, and I cant wait to try the new cakes...

Carol's books have helped me SO much, that I can now design my OWN, to order....

SOME people have commented that they find the instructions difficult... CAROL DEACON has turned my cakes from a complete mess, to what LOOK like PROFFESSIONALLY made!

I sometimes spend up to 8 hours decorating one of Carol's cakes, but I "personalize" them now...

At the end of the day, practice, like Carol did...

Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners, 23 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is packed with really good ideas for cakes for many occasions. The book is full of really good pictures and the instructions are easy to follow. Most of the designs appear to be realtively easy - even for a beginner like me, or for those of us who are not overly artistic. One thing to consider is that many of the designs rely heavily on the use of fondant icing and the actual sponge cake can be quite small. The book comes complete with templates to help achieve a good result, unfortunately the templates need to be enlarged (by more than 100%) and unless you have a photocopier with this facility Im not altogether sure how to do this. Overall this is a useful book full of nice ideas which (even without the templates or the over use of fondant icing) could be produced with a little bit of patience and minimal effort

5.0 out of 5 stars Best For Ideas, 7 Dec 2013

This review is from: Quick and Easy Novelty Cakes (Paperback)
This is the best cake for fresh ideas for novelty cakes. Practical, clear instructions, no expensive tins to buy! Cakes come out exactly as they are supposed to so very impressed.
Try different flavoured cakes and then decorate though - chocolate cake with butterscotch butter icing is my family's favourite!

I bought this as a gift for my sister but I tried some things myself, it's so much fun to make these, within no time you'll have some little sugar craft animals roaming the kitchen.
