This is one of the best cake decorating books I have. Mr. Winbeckler is amazing and he is a great teacher. All the animals featured in the book are achievable by cake decorators of all levels. The instructions are very simple to follow and you will be making adorable cakes or cupcake characters in no time! I HIGHLY recommend!

After purchasing several of Mr. Winbeckler's pamphlets, videos and tools from his website and Amazon.com, I can accurately state that he is an excellent instructor and my decorating skills have improved tremendously. Phamphlets are packed with information but require practice and patience.

I had the pleasure of taking a class when Roland Winbeckler was in town several years ago. This book in particular is one of my favorites. I created all kinds of wonderful cupcakes -- the animals were easy to recreate. I even added them to my cakes with rave reviews.

The only thing that would improve this book would be to make it bigger! These ideas are truly unique and easy (well, if you do it step by step). Helped me to have a new outlook on decorating.

Verified Purchase
This is the second time I have purchased this book. The first one I purchased was so worn-out from use, it was time to replace it. I learned how to make several animals with this book - simply using buttercream icing and a piping bag. The lion, tiger and frog look great on cupcakes. The other animals are wonderful on cakes. But, you can scale any of the animals based on the size of your cake or cupcakes. I am very accustomed to using a piping bag and have a variety of tips in my decorating supplies. If you are a novice decorator, the directions are easy - you just need to master the piping bag and you may have to add a few tips to your supplies.

This book is perfect for those needing ideas for characters for cakes, but it is also wonderful for making figures on top of cupcakes for any party. Easy to recreate, all you need is colored buttercream and a pastry bag, and the pictures are easy to follow. One of my favorites from Winbeckler.
