Anyway, I still had to see this book because, ideas can never be too much. I made a reservation from at my library for them to borrow the book from another library.
Which I had to pay a small fee, it is still a lot cheaper that purchasing yet another book.
To my amazement(apart from the cover and title)this book is an identical copy of The International School of Sugarcraft Book 2.(By Nicholas Lodge).
As the previous review said: the styles are old fashion, she is totally correct, my book 2, I had it approx: 7 - 9 years ago, it is shocking to know that someone out there is trying to deceive the public.
A book published 2011 with a new title, one would not expect the content to be identical to a book that published many years ago.......SHOCKING........
On closer inspection, this book should have probably been called "Absolutely Everything You Could Possibly Need To Know About Decorating Cakes". It's not just about Sugarcraft, but has information and recipes for all kinds of icing, sugarpaste, flower paste, etc. There are plenty of photographs illustrating the instructions.
Overall not a good book- some lovely figures/plaques etc but directions are so vague its next to impossible to follow in places. if it was written better itd be an amazing book, but sadly the person who wrote this clearly didnt think before they wrote it all down.
Id recommend borrowing this from a library before buying it.. you ll probably only be disappointed otherwise.
Incidentally, the book arrived here in record time in pristine condition.
