Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Smith is passionate about cake decorating and shares her skills in many books on the subject (e.g., Celebrate with Mini Cakes). Strong in technique and instruction, her latest title is more of a how-to book than a traditional cookbook. An abundance of photos accompanies the instructions, so this is a good choice for visual learners. The compilation of techniques and projects will be appreciated by both beginners and those wishing to strengthen their decorating skills. Smith's book contains mostly higher-level techniques perfect for those who already enjoy the art and are looking for more inspiration.
