I've now made three very successful and ooh-ed after cakes based on this book (fairy/Airbus A380 (!)/jungle animals), but every one has taken me around 5 hours to do. I invariably end up to my armpits in fondant icing at 3am the day before my children's birthdays frantically modelling.
The ideas & photos are good, but every cake uses fondant icing, which I have to order in pre-coloured to save time, which works out costly. You then spend hours trying to smoothly cover cakes/boards/accurately model figures.
If you're a novice I'd strongly suggest buying a book which uses simpler, traditional techniques such as chocolate icing & smarties for ladybirds & butterflies, or chocolate fingers & pre-made cowboy figures for a fort. Good luck!
Honestly, I can bake a cake, but decorating is a different matter, and with the guidlines of this book, I am building my confidence, and building orders...
Step by step instructions are easily followed by those who have never even made a cake.
I now have TWO books by this Author, and she is brilliant.
I can guarentee at least one order a month now....
My grandma bought me the first copy as a gift when I started making cakes years ago and this time ive bought my own as I always use the cake recipe and follow it exact!
I have taken the time to cover the front and back book cover with clear plastic and have also covered the pages I use the most, so they don't get covered!
I made my sisters wedding cake using this book!
