Let me start by saying that I am not a professional baker. I bake cakes strictly for a hobby. I tend to find cake decorating books very intimidating and overwhelming. However, that is not the case with this book. The instructions in this book are very clear. The pictures provide very helpful illustrations of concepts and are very beautiful. The approach author takes in this book is very helpful because she gives you several different ways to tackle the same problem.

However, that is not the case with this book. The instructions in this book are very clear. The pictures provide very helpful illustrations of concepts and are very beautiful. The approach author takes in this book is very helpful because she gives you several different ways to tackle the same problem. So, if you have difficulty with one technique, there are several other options presented. This could be very beneficial if say for example you are left-handed or have a disability that would prevent you from decorating in the standard, traditional manner. Additionally, I like the fact that she presents several do-it-yourself, budget friendly options to expensive cake decorating tools. This is a very comprehensive book that covers not only recipes, piping techniques and equipment as you would expect from such a book. But, it also covers more advanced topics such as sculpting and cake composition. This is a book that every person interested in cake decorating should have whether you are just a beginner or have been in the field for years. ...more
