Item Description...
"Murfitt calms potentially nervous fingers by not only including step-by-step color photographs and text but also showing alternatives to traditional embellishments.--Booklist

"A `must have' for anyone with the slightest interest in cake decorating."--Publishers Weekly

Everyone will think these amazing cakes came from the best bakery in town. From a chocolate porcupine to candied petals, the options shown in this lush guide are endless, and all presented in a way that even beginners can easily follow. Pretty sugar-paste creations embellish a marzipan-covered cake. Nuts, sugar-frosted fruits, candy, and cinnamon sticks make beautiful decorations in an instant. And there are embossed patterns, ruffled borders, sugar-paste cutouts, and other eye-catching ideas, all with instructions, recipes, and templates, to provide inspiration for every occasion.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
modern for its time  Apr 6, 2005
The best feature of this book is the layout. As the title suggests, instructions are given out in a most logical sequence. Directions start off with information on sculpting, then covering with fondant, onto to using color, then instant decorations and so on.
The techniques offered here were modern for its time, but now seem a bit dated. The sculpting ideas are good. I like the way she showed how a # 3 cake could be made, and there is some interesting information in the instant decoration section. Using jimmies as a board covering is a neat idea as was the caramel decoration-they looked like little butterflies. Other techniques new to me were the fondant ribbon insertions and modeling applications similiar to the polymer clay Fimo (the striped fondant on the circus cake is a good example).

However most of the other techniques have been better represented in other works.The cake designs shown in the book didn't appeal to me and I was not inspired by her book as it read like a text book. She should of shown a different cake to illustrate painting; a toy top would of been a much better choice, as the example she offered looked amateurish.
Other complaints include having too much information in this book to fit the title listed and the piping techniques being too difficult for a beginner to do. Overall not a great book.
Fine if you like fondant  Aug 26, 2001
Like many cake decorating books published in the UK, this book's cakes are not apt to have broad appeal to the US home baker. People who grew up with Aunt Betty's buttercream icing and Mom's frosted cupcakes after school may find the taste of the sugarpaste (rolled fondant) covering used on nearly all these cakes unfamiliar, too sweet, and with a stange texture. Most of the cakes are lovely to look at, but there is not a single one in here that I would actually make.
Beautiful cakes for the advanced cake decorator  Feb 22, 2000
The book is beautifully photographed and written, however the tools and ingredients are not for beginners. Ribbons and marzipan are used frequently, rather than plain icing, and the cakes are elaborate.
Only discusses fondant and sugarpaste techniques  May 26, 1999
This book does not illustrate any techniques used with piped icing.There are some beautiful cakes but they are decorated with either poured or rolled fondant.
I would reccomend this book to many others who are learning.  Jun 14, 1998
I have enjoyed reading this book, and learning all the techniques described inside. The recipes, and guidelines to follow are easy for the first time decorator. I will definitly recommend this book to all my friends, who wish to learn the basics about the art of cake decorating. Thank you Janice Murfitt
