Another beautiful book from Mich Turner
on 17 January 2009
Any one who has any interest in a wedding cake will delight in this book, be they cake maker or bride to be. Mich creates stunning cakes with huge attention to detail and is incredibly skilled in her art. She passes on all her knowledge and gives clear concise instructions to recreate all the designs featured which are influenced by fashion through the last and present century. Recipes are included and I'm delighted to see more quantity guides for various size cakes than in her earlier books. I would buy the book for the chocolate cake recipe alone, it's an amazing taste sensation! Don't miss an opportunity to share the knowledge of a lady who is the top of her game and is prepared to pass on her secrets.
My only negative remark would be towards the use of fresh flowers on cakes. They do look beautiful, but should something sprayed with pesticides come into contact with a food item? The debate will continue I'm sure. Personally, I would only use sugar flowers. Mich does include instructions for sugar lillies and has included entirely edible designs, so those concerned over this issue are catered for.
I highly recommend this title. Well done Mich!
