Format: Paperback
Betty Crockers recipes and designs are fantastic and well thought of. I'm very chauffed with this book. It gives me quite a few ideas for special occasion cakes. I've already made most of the cupcakes which were quite simple. Sometimes a bit hard finding exactly the same sweets she uses as this is an American book but it is possible to improvise.

I bought this book not knowing what to expect. Big mistake buying it.

All the cakes, obviously, 'require' Betty crocker icing. It doesn't say how much you will need if you want to use your own.

The cakes all use buttercream, there are absolutely none with fondant, and this is what I wanted. Fondant icing is the natural medium of icing to use for decorating recipes such as these, and I was sorely disappointed when buttercream was given as the medium. Buttercream tastes good, but it wasn't the right type of icing.

The cakes look like they had been made by a four year old, if I had served up one of these, I would be deeply embarrassed.

Don't make the mistake I made. Don't buy the book.
