Format: Hardcover
Beautiful photos. Great Ideas. Lots of instructions. What's not to like? Well, there isn't a mention of portion size or number anywhere to be found. I figured out that the larger cakes serve 150 wedding portions by finding one that is made of 150 molds filled with chocolate mousse. If you don't really know how to work with cakes and their decorations this book is a bit advanced- I'm a pastry chef and had problems with the first one I tried. It was worth the effort- a tasty cake and wonderful to behold. I'm going to try another of the cakes in a few weeks-and now I know how much time it might really take. YOU MUST PLAN AHEAD when using this book-like a week in advance. Otherwise- go for it, you'll definitely learn a lot

As an avowed chocoholic, I had to have this book also. It runs the gamut from dipping strawberries, making roses from chocolate paste and the best [in my opinion] on page 32, is a 3 tiered wedding cake with a marbled chocolate drape adorning all three tiers and secured at intervals with chocolate roses. There's also centerpieces, truffles, a list of suppliers, etc.
This is a must have for your library. The photos are incredible, everthing is clear!!!
