I have both the physical copy of this book in paperback, plus the version on Kindle. It's a good book, and it starts the reader off with the very basics at first, which equipment to use, Chef Vallastro then takes you through various techniques and also has a troubleshooting part when the pitfalls are, so that they may be avoided. As this is an American book, some of the measurements have to be rejigged into something even I can understand! There are recipes which may be just certain ones which I've found (unless they were tweaked to cater to a more UK palate) didn't go down so well with my family. Having said that, I enjoyed reading it just as a book.

This book is not for anyone who already knows even the most rudimentary techniques for decorating a cake. I was so disappointed in it that I couldn't give it to the recipient intended for fear that she would have been insulted. I probably knew the "tips" that were in this book when I was ten years old. And, seriously, pink frosting does not make a cake into a "girl's birthday cake", and blue into a "boy's birthday cake". Ouch. The tv show is entertaining. This book is ok for a very young child first venturing into a kitchen, pastry bag in hand. Not for anyone else.

Not as good as i expected to be. The recipes arents as amazing as you would think and the contents and measuring units are more suited to americans in my opinion than over here in the uk. Dissapointing as I love cake boss the show

its not a bad book, but I was highly disappointed at the errors in the recipes...in particular the cream cheese frosting...there's no way 2 cups of powdered sugar can work.. anyone else tried that one?

I would highly recommend NOT buying this book if you do not live in the US. The recipes says for example "a stick of butter" and no indication of an equivalent if you live outside the US.
Also it says "a cup of flour"? I would also not recommend if you are a newbie baker as I don't think the step by step to piping Is that great. I love buddy and the cake boss show but I definitely feel as though I wasted my money :(

Format: Paperback
I do like this book it is full of alot of Buddy's classic recipes from Carlo's Bakery. It does involve hunting down some specialised ingredients, but the internet helps with this. Most of the recipes are fairly easy to follow. One or two do need a bit more skill and some confidence with a piping bag. The reason I gave it a 4 out 0f 5 is because there is alot of description and story before you get down to the recipes themselves. I was expecting a few more recipes for the size of book.
