Elaborate and eye-catching coffee table book.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planet Cake Cupcakes (Paperback)
There are some very elaborate and intricate designs for decorating cupcakes in this book. However, they are complicated and will take a very long time to complete. There are lots of instructions and lovely photos of the completed cupcakes and I may take a few ideas away but I doubt I will ever make any. Some of the designs involve having a dozen or more cupcakes arranged in a certain manner to complete the image. Novel but not very practical. Other cupcakes have so much fondant icing on them that they would be far too sickly to eat, plus, after all the time taken to make the figures such as animals sat atop the bun, it would be a shame to eat them! There are also techniques like air-brushing involved that many people will not have the equipment to do.
On saying this, it is a nice book to flick through and some of the cupcake designs have a real "wow" factor but it is a coffee table book and not a book that I will use.
