Very good book
on 7 December 2012
I bought this book, because I started decorating cakes and I wanted to try making animal figures. It is a spiral bound book, so if you want to reproduce a figure, the book won't close. This works very well for me. The book has more than 250 pages of very clear pictures of how the animal should look like when it is ready, as well as divided into all the different pieces. So it is very easy to follow.
There so incredibly many animals in this book, for so little money, that I can really recommend this book. She also shows how to make and bake the cake, prepare the cake the animals can be placed on, how to mix colours, paint figures, etc. So it is an all round book. Some other decorating books, also show how to place the models on the cake and how to decorate the cake. The emphasis in this book is not on that, but on how to make the different models. But with 100 different animals, the book is complete for me.
One reviewer commented that she didn't like the book, because the figures weren't all that funny. Some of the animals are life like and some are funny. Just as in real life. I find this an advantage, you can choose what to make.
I like this book a lot!
