This review is from: Planet Cake Cupcakes (Paperback)
I reserved this book months ago and was really looking forward to it as I love the first book a lot. But I was really let down by this one. I was looking for a book with extensive cupcake ideas such as the ones on the first book and the front cover of this book (probably the only one I really like). But what I got was a lot of overworked cupcake designs that are very impratical for a cake maker and most unuseful for home baker!
Most of them would never be ordered by anyone, or no one would ever order them and be prepared to pay for it, it is very labour intensive and you would charge to the roof for it, this is more for artistic flair rather than saleability. It's almost like they run out of ideas and had to make cupcakes there and then to meet the deadline. I also did not like that the book is more drawings than actual photos of the cupcake process. That was annoying.
Most designs are very impractical. There were a few that gives me inspiration but the rest are a let down. I dont hate it, I just dont like it. Its good to look at but thats all it is. I'm sooo sad.

I have to agree entirely with Grace this book was so disappointing.
