Bought this as a replacement for an old and well used friend that had seen better days! All instructions given are detailed and step by step. Very easy to produce results just like the photos! Kids especially liked the chocolate cookie monster and making their own version! This is the book that I turn to first when a birthday approaches!

Great book, especially for a novice. I attempted my very first sugar craft cake for my grandson and the book made a very complex looking cake really easy. My family think I am a genius ....it gave me confidence to try other cakes and now I'm unstoppable!! Thoroughly recommend this.

I got this book just after my son was born and was far too intimidated by it to give it a go. It sat on a shelf for years until I had an attack of bravery and tried the Sketchbook cake. It wasn't absolutely perfect but I was more than impressed by the result. Since then I have well and truly got the bug and have lots more books on Cake Decorating but this one remains a firm favourite, mostly for its simplicity. Although some of the designs look quite complicated and can be a bit fiddly, they are generally much easier than those in other books. Most use only shaped sugarpaste and don't need special equipment or use complicated techniques or piping (no piping is a very definite bonus for me!). Where she does use special equipment, she gives alternative methods using more common items. While they can be quite hard work, the results are always worth the effort and it does get easier with practice.

Overall, this book is a great place to start if you just want to dive straight in without having to spend a lot of money on tools and have the time and patience to work at it!

I took one look at the cakes in this book and realised that this was not the book to refer to for your first attempt at decorating a cake. I was hoping to find something easy that would build my confidence, but no such luck.

It did contain some helpful information about the basic requirements and some templates which is a useful feature.
