Excellent - though some of these cakes look like they could take weeks to put together.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Lovable Character Cakes (Hardcover)
I bought this book to make the "Gromit in his doghouse" cake. The book is great insofar as it has a good variety of cakes (boys and girls are equally catered for), the instructions are very precise and the incremental photographs of cake construction are very useful.
I think that some of the cakes are going to take a lot of effort if made exactly as described e.g. the other Wallace and Gromit cake. It has so many intricate pieces (the carpet pattern for instance!) that you will need the patience of a saint and the skill of master-craftsman to get not only a good looking cake, but one that's edible.
Still a great book that really does help you to come up with birthday treats that will get talked about for years to come.
