    Good Book for self starter

    It's a good book for a self starter that has a little bit of knowledge of cake decorating. Not sure a true beginner can accomplish some of the projects, but good overall.

    Worst decorations

    I made a terrible mistake buying this book. The way the author was decorating the cake was inexperience. I decorate cakes and I bought this book for some ideas, but this was nowhere near what I was expecting. I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone experience or not. Don't buy it, you will end up returning it like I did.

    great but needs a little proofing

    For most things, the instructions are clear and easy to follow- great for learning the basics. However, something is wrong with the chocolate cake recipe. It tells you add 1/4 CUP cinnamon (although the picture shows what looks like a 1 tsp) and no where in the directions does it tell you to add sugar. This is the only mistke I've found so far, but I haven't tried everything yet.
