3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Book, 24 April 2013
This review is from: Decorating Cakes: Cake decorating for every occasion: from simple to elaborate and weddings to special birthdays (The Australian Women's Weekly) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This book is lovely; hardback with good quality images throughout. It is full of beautiful ideas and step-by-step photographs to help you recreate them. It is separated into three sections, that take the reader through cake decoration from easy to difficult levels. In all honesty, the majority of readers would need to stay with the first two sections for quite some time unless they have a lot of previous experience.

The book gives the reader great ideas of how to decorate cakes for many different occasions. The only real flaw, in my opinion, is that it calls for many different types of cake decorating tools to be used. I was hoping that the beginner section would have focussed more on what you can make from scratch - without specialist equipment.

There is a section of the book dedicated to recipes - some for cakes, and others for toppings. The measurements are written in cups, but this is more than made up for by the fact that the measurements and cooking times are adjusted for different size cake tins! This is the first time I have seen a cake book do this, so forgive my excitement. I think that this is such a wonderfully thoughtful tool to refer to!

Overall, I do think that this is a very lovely book. It is perhaps less of a book for total beginners, and more for those who have a fair amount of experience under their belts already.
