VINE VOICETOP 1000 REVIEWERon 20 November 2013
This is a collection of quite ambitious decorated cakes. If you have ever considered making a celebration cake, then this book is packed full of ideas, techniques and projects. There are plenty of themed cakes designs to choose from for many occasions. Some of the projects will require quite a bit of time and practice and perhaps some experience. There is plenty of information about equipment, ingredients and basic recipes for cake bases, icings and frostings before launching into the projects.

The content in the book is great, but if you are considering this in the Kindle ebook format, take note you can't increase the font size or zoom onto the page if you are reading it on a smart phone or smaller tablet. This means that sometimes the instructions are a little hard to read - especially if you are elbow deep in icing and trying to follow the instructions. There are a lot of photos which means that it takes a little while to load and is not really that well suited to a black and white only Kindle. This is a eBook best viewed on a larger tablet or PC. This is a book best read as a physical book.

I was really disappointed with this book as I had been hoping for so much more.

The descriptions and techniques are pretty standard stuff but better explained/photographed in other books (my favourite is "The Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating" by Autumn Carpenter).

With the projects there are step by step instructions but only three photos per project (which are quite small and not at all helpful to create the individual pieces).

It is an ok book but one I wish I hadnt bothered to get unfortunately.

Excellent! A really good informative book and with excellent photo's. I would highly recommend it if you are a novice or if you need reminding. I can put it on my worktop and follow instructions the photos are that helpful.

Some good designs but doesn't tell you how much batter to make for each design?

This book is normally £16.99 so I thought £11.55 was a bargain. I initially thought the book was fine, but as I flipped through the pages more closely I noticed a handful of pages in another language! I am now having to send back the book. Think I'll pop into the local shop and pay full price.
