Overview

Delight family and friends with exquisitely decorated cakes for birthdays, dinner parties, or just as a special treat. Through a simple question-and-answer format, with every procedure shown in color photographs, beginners will find out how to decorate without icing (just use a powdered sugar design); how to make chocolate curls and gumpaste flowers; how to prepare the drizzled chocolate icing known as ganache; and how to embellish tiered, bundt, and raspberry-filled cakes. See how to whip up fondant, ice petits fours, and use a pastry bag to write greetings and create adornments. The all-important wedding cake is here, too. And while the focus is on decoration, there are also basic cake and icing recipes, too.

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.

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.

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.
