5.0 out of 5 stars lovely book with a shelf-life well beyond the wedding day, 1 Aug. 2013
This review is from: Boutique Wedding Cakes (Hardcover)
I used this book when making a wedding cake as a gift. I found it really inspiring as well as practical. The author has managed to put together a collection of varying styles which illustrate lots of techniques. They don't all fit my design preferences, (that's surely the point) but to my eye there is nothing tacky or hideous here. Everything is clearly set out, and little previous experience is assumed. I appreciate the way the recipes and amounts of icing etc. can be scaled up. There is a chart showing the numbers of portions to expect from each cake size - something I would have thought essential information but surprisingly rarely included. This book really scores with its opening chapter helpful advice on planning, transporting and presenting the cake. It also works as a general reference for recipes and techniques which are shown and explained really well, and much of it is applicable to other celebration cakes. The design of my cake owes more to Mich Turner's Couture Cakes, (largely because I read that one first, and also wanted spaced tiers) but it was this volume that I turned to for checking I was doing things right. Highly recommended.
