4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Original Decorations for Cookies and Cakes! 24 Mar. 2011
By Cami - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Wacky Cakes & Kooky Cookies by Gerhard Jenne
The cover of this lovely book caught my attention while browsing Amazon's great selection of cookbooks. I ordered my book used, and it didn't have a cover. However, it is a nice hard back cookbook which with a very strong binding that will withstand being used over and over again. The pages are very nice and coated to withstand the occasional frosting spill that might get on it. There are 80 pages, and about 33 recipes. Almost every recipe has a full page color photo. The book is laid out with five sections: Introduction, Decorating Cookies, Decorating Cakes, Templates, and an index. This cookbook has things for both the beginner and seasoned baker/decorator. This book is a good value. The decorations are fairly simple in scope. If you are looking for the over-the-top detailed decorations then this book is not for you. However, if you want a simpler approach to decorating cookies and cakes then you will enjoy this book.
The introduction is filled with information on how to make a paper frosting bag to fillings, and frosting. The decorating ideas are very original, and some are quite simple. Each recipe is packed with detailed information on how to decorate to get the same look. I tried several of the recipes and was able to find all the ingredients I needed at my local grocery store. You will need to have basic cake decorating supplies. In the back of the book he has two pages of templates which I found very helpful.
I love his recipe for carrot cake and have received a lot of great reviews from my friends and family when they try the "Coiffured Carrot Cakes." His recipe for Lemon Water Frosting is one of my favorites. I would recommend this book to someone that wanted to get started in decorating. This book is not intimidating at all.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual "Wilton" look in cakes 1 Mar. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Jenne has some fun, creative and original ideas for cake decorating. Yes, they do look a bit sloppy, but then these are not the usual "Wilton" frosting daisies and roses. The reason for just 2 stars is some of the recipes aren't very good with questionable instructions. For example, the one for Chocolate Granache calls for UNSWEETENED chocolate and cream. That's it. And it's absolutely vile tasting. I ended up using Jacques Pepin's recipe from his "La Technique" cookbook. And the Konditor cake needs a special Croquembouche mold which will set you back about $90-$110. I think this book is for more experienced bakers who can spot a questionable recipe, but then they probably have better cookbooks in their libraries.

. The ones inside look childish and are not particularly original.
I have not tried the recipes themselves yet so who knows if they work.
