    simply gorgeous!

    I'd heard some buzz on this side of the atlantic about Mr. Lanlard's fantastic celebrity creations (Madonna, Elizabeth Hurley, Elton John) so my curiosity was piqued when I saw this title. GLAMOUR CAKES doesn't disappoint - these are some of the most beautiful, ambitious, and unique pieces I've seen. I especially enjoyed the variation options (miniatures or single servings) for non-wedding or more casual celebrations. Despite my limited baking skills, this elegant collection inspires me to shoot for the moon!
