Beautiful cakes but instructions not clear
on 9 March 2017
Bought 2 of this series of books as was smitten with a patchwork heart cake I saw on Pinterest. The author clearly has a intuitive understanding of colour and makes some beautiful cakes but I would say this book isn't for amateurs as you have to fill a lot in yourself. The instructions aren't all that clear and many important things are described in (a few) words when a series of pictures would do the trick much better. She does do this in some areas ie carving a heart cake, but in others where it would seem essential (like how to cut and get the patchwork pieces on the cake), there are just a few words. Maybe it's just me and my inexperience (as an enthusiastic but amateur baker) but I spend a lot of time writing clear instructions as part of my job so recognise when these could be better. Perhaps a link to a website with videos Lindy?
