Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Book buyers expect nothing less than perfection from Martha Stewart, and somehow she always delivers. Martha Stewart's Wedding Cakes is an elegant confection just as beautiful as the towering objects it addresses. This coffee-table book is much more than a lavish compendium of memorable recipes or cake inspirations; it serves as a fully conceived tutorial for brides-to-be and bakers on wedding cakes in all their dizzying varieties. Wendy Kromer, the veteran master baker of Martha Stewart Weddings, contributes a full measure of kitchen wisdom to Martha's delightful concoction. A gorgeous prenuptial gift; a peerless wedding planning aid.

    Very useful!

    I was unsure if I wanted to pay the price for this book but decided what the heck and am so glad I did! I haven't owned it long and have already tried three cake recipes, two filling recipes, and two frosting recipes and each one has been excellent and I have gotten great feedback. It's easy to use, very simply explained techniques, great pictures and worth every penny!

    I never thought I'd buy a Martha Stewart book...especially a $60 one, but this book is amazing. The recipes are wonderful and the cakes are gorgeous. It's the best wedding cake book I have, and I have quite a few. Everything you need is in this book.
