I purchased this book, having been a fan of Lindy for a while now. I was really expecting a 'WOW' experience over this book but I was so very disappointed. There was barely a cake in it that I liked that much, I didn't feel inspired to want to try any of them to be honest. I just thought they were very basic and none were that pretty and I have made better myself IMO! There are so many cupcake artists doing much better cupcake designs. I felt it was probably a rush-job to get a book out on the market to placate the publisher as cupcakes are big $$$$$ business at the moment! Just my opinion but I have other of Lindy's books and love them. Anyway, the bok arrived quite damaged in the post, owing to being sent in very flimsy corrugated paper. It was bent/broken along the spine and I returned it for a refund. Had I have loved the book or even vaguely liked it, I would have asked for a replacement. Sorry Lindy! And amazon...take note about the flimsy sub-standard packaging!
