    Great recipes!

    The chocolate cake recipe is tremendous, as is the banana cake. Kaye's buttercream is not for the faint of heart, and you really have to whip the heck out of it if you're using a hand held mixer, but it is worth the time. Even if you're not a fan of the decorating style of this book, one should really try a couple of the recipes before dismissing it.

    Excellent Outlet for the Serious Decorator

    I have never seen chocolate used as the way they use it in this book! Excellent resource for someone who is looking for a new and beautiful way to decorate their cakes. I HIGHLY recommend this book!

    THE BEST BOOK EVER!

    This book is GREAT! It is unlike any other cake decorating book I have seen. I loved it! The recipes are great, and the ideas are wonderful! I hope they write a second book with more great ideas! I have made several things out of it and they have all exceeded my expectations! GREAT BOOK!

    Great cake book with new ideas

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! The authors make copying their designs so easy. One of the first cakes I made was the lightening bug cake. The frosting came out beautifully and the chocolate lightening bugs could not have been easier. Their directions are so easy to follow, you'll feel like a pro after the first cake. The cake and frosting combinations are delicious!
    Not all the ideas are new, but the chocolate decorations are just too much fun, if you like working with chocolate and creating your own unique decorations, give this book a try.

    A Cake Book That Delivers!

    The Whimsical Bakehouse delivers what is says it will. I have tried many of the recipies in the book. They ALL came out excellent! The teniques described in this book will also answer some of your most daunting questions. I learned tons of information from this book. Anyone that has the desire to make professional baked cakes, this is the book for you. Just one thing, be prepared to put forth some effort. This is not one of those 'quick cake' books. All the steps outlined in the book are easy to accomplish and understand. I hope that they come out with another book. Kudos to these fine women.

    Creative Book!

    The Whimisical Bake House book is full of creative ideas. I have had great success trying the recipes and playing with color in a new way. Using wafer chocolate to do designs is very clever. A great book for anyone wanting to expand their creativity in cake decorating and a plus for any serious collector of cake decorating books.
