    Beautiful Cakes!

    I am a foodie and baker, so I was looking for a cookbook that would show doable techniques to create standout cakes. I've always been a bit intimidated by decorating with fondant and gum paste chef/author Elisa Strauss gives perfect tips and guidance on how to work with fondant to create the perfect design. For those who aren't everyday bakers, the cookbook starts with basic techniques and rules. It includes multiple foundational recipes for cakes and cookies. From there, the cookbook leads to several creative designs ranging from a cake that looks like a handbag 'very cool!' to a cake that looks like classic baby blocks to a wedding cake that looks like it is embroidered with chocolate. 'It's the wedding cake in Sex in the City when Charlotte marries Harry'. The real art is in the design and execution of these varied cakes. The designs are both elegant and whimsical. All of the designs are incredibly creative. This is a terrific cookbook that will help any baker approach cakes in a new and creative way. The rubber duckie cupcakes are next on my list to try out!

    The Sock Puppet Strikes Back!

    Elisa Strauss is a brilliant cake decorator. Her unique and breath-taking cakes bring light to dozens of people. The recipes for cake, fondant, and icing are well written and work very well in a kitchen setting. Beginners and advanced cake decorators can both use this book to better their craft as well as foster new ideas. The Handbag Cake on the cover would boggle the mind of any baker, but Strauss makes it all seem easy as she talks the reader through the process. A personal favorite is the Chocolate Embroidery Wedding Cake. This is a Must Have for any baker. The Sock Puppet Strikes Back for Elisa Strauss!

    Best Red Velvet cupcakes! Great gift

    I love this book! I have made the red velvet cupcakes so many times and everyone loves them, with or without frosting. Many friends have requested the cupcakes as my present to them for their birthday parties. I use either the cream cheese frosting or the Italian meringue, the meringue is my favorite.<BR/>I am an avid baker and have tried all the recipes and am very impressed with the end product.<BR/>The instructions are very easy, this is a great book for a beginner or a pro.

    highly recommended

    this book is a must have , wonderful techniques so far i have tried a few of the ideas that worked well. It also teaches you how to get a wood effect from the fondant, which looks so real.

    Buy this book!

    Read the review and decided to pick this book up. I was not disappointed. This is easily understood for a newbie but interesting enough for a more experienced baker. Beautiful pictures and basic recipes. Love it.
