This really is a great book for beginning cake decorators. It explains the decorating tools and what you should have in your beginning tool kit. It also gives several great recipes for from-scratch cakes or frosting/fondant. I use this book every time I bake a cake now.

There's a lot of content in this book, but it's definately for beginners - those who have never baked a cake before. If you have any cake decorating experience, you won't find a lot of additional info in this book that you can use. If I would have known that the book was so basic I wouldn't have purchased it. On the other hand, if you've never baked or decorated a cake, this is a good starting point, but I feel it's the tip of the iceberg!

I bought this book for my 24 yr old niece that is getting married in a week. When she opened it for Christmas, she was so excited. It was just what she wanted. She went in the other room and started reading it right away.
