Lovely book to inspire,
This review is from: The Essential Guide to Cake Decorating (Cookery) (Hardcover)
I bought this book in Phoenix last year whilst on holiday - I am a cake decorator and thought this was one of the best cake decorating books I'd seen. In fact, I liked it so much that I took it on as handluggage to pour over on my flight back to Heathrow. Heaps of photos, loads of great designs and a wealth of information on technique eg. sugar flowers, working with royal icing, brush embroidery, modelling. A host of good, close-up photos with some absolutely, stunning cake designs - I've got all the up-to-date books such as Mich Turner's Spectacular Cakes and both Peggy Porschen's books but this is a fabulous reference book with around 180 pages of cakes and around 100 pages on technique. Well worth buying.
