This review is from: Dress Your Cupcake: Bake them! Dress them! Eat them! (Paperback)
The book is laid out with a childish charm, and provides a large section on how to create different toppings as well as basic decorating techniques and recipes for the cupcakes. It also suggests some overlooked ideas, such as melting hard-boiled sweets for effects such as ice.
The designs are very over the top, and in some cases too colourful, but by seeing them as a guide you will soon be able to configure the designs to your liking. It is a refreshing change from the sophisticated look that is slowly flooding the market.
Every topper has a picture of the finished product, that is helpful in molding and shaping the figures.
Like all books some of the designs are better than others, and whilst they would take a while to create, not a lot of specialist equipment is needed, so that children can have a go at creating some of the tops. Also, the designs are likely to work on a larger cake, so it could provide extra ideas.
See it as a source of inspiration and clever ideas, and you won't go far wrong.
