    A reviewer

    This book has it all the ideas, complete and very detailed how to directions, recipes, tricks of the trade and very importantly, the time lines to help you organize the task of making and decorating your masterpiece. It's a great book for a novice such as myself. I will also use this book as a reference for years to come for ideas and inspiration. Don't let the pictures scare you. They look complicated but Dede breaks it all down into smaller components. She inspires confidence and creativity. This is not only an 'ideas' book but also a 'how to' book. Have ordered many books from this Barnes and Noble site. You can't go wrong.

    The Only Wedding Cake Book

    DeDe changed the way I decorate my cakes! I have a small business and was tired of seeing the same old design techniques. I now use real ediable crystallized flowers, and fresh fruit, and work more with chocolate. She makes decorating cakes a work of art, and her recipes are outstanding. The lemon buttermilk is the best I have ever eaten. I will be purchasing her next book.

    Bring back the Tradition of fine baking!

    Get past what you may consider the 'traditional' wedding cake: grainy buttercream (that tastes more like lard than butter) slathered over bland white cake that is most likely from a mix. Wilson's book returns us to the original intentions of the first multi-tiered outrageous wedding confection developed in Europe: decadent flavor and sophisticated design. As an avid home baker, I had considered making my wedding cake but was concerned it would be a daunting task. After several disappointing taste tests at bakeries, I know my only option is to make a cake from the recipes in this book! The small sample cakes I've made so far have been hits at dinner parties. And Wilson makes clear the designs she presents are only a springboard for your own vision of your unique special occasion. If you are a bride totally lacking in imagination, who must have the same white cake as every other Wedding Package bride, don't buy this book.
