I was looking for some ideas for my mother's birthday cake when I came across this book. Having not attended any celebrity birthdays, I was unaware of how ornamental cakes had become. While most of the techniques appear intimidating at first, the step by step instructions are very helpful. I believe that with some basic background and a lot of patience, most people should be able to create the cakes in the book. The photographs of the various cakes have opened my eyes to what is possible in the way of cake decorating. I look forward to my first attempt next week.
