Editorial Reviews

Booklist - Mark Knoblauch
Dam offers illustrated guidance in the construction of contemporary decorated cakes that celebrate street scenes, plush cushions, peacocks, bouquets, and more. Full-color photographs guide where mere text cannot fully explain intended outcomes, and they show off the flamboyantly intense colors that modern tinting gels offer cake designers.... Given the popularity of such television shows as Ace of Cakes, this book will attract a number of readers.
