The photography in this book is very detailed and inspiring and if you can handle copying from a photo without too much guidance from the text then this book is perfect for you. However, I would have appreciated more detail in the instructions. The authour tends to rely on a lot of prior knowledge from the reader when she tutors you to "make X, make Y," without actually guiding you through how to make X or Y. But the pictures are its saving grace and give you some ideas if you are wanting simple, easy to make miniature food. For those requiring more sophisticated and detailed techniques I recommend "Miniature Food Masterclass" by Angie Scarr.
