What an absolute treat!!! Fun, whimsical, and creative idea's all put into a great cake decorating book!

I had first heard of the Planet Cake Shoppe when I had been perusing the Flickr website, and had looked into their baking section. There are untold joys of finding cakes, cookies, and such that are decorated by both non-professional and professionals alike. It was during one of my sojourns that I noted that they were coming out with a cake decorating book and I wasted no time in acquiring it.I needed to go through the "New and Used" section at Amazon in order to acquire it, but I'm hoping that they will be able to get it for the baking faithful soon.

Planet Cake is owned and operated by Paris Culter, who started in finances but had been pulled to cake baking and decorating because that was her real love. With the help and support of husband, family, and friends, plus an incredibly talented staff, Planet Cake stands out as a creative and "outside-the-box" cake company, which has catered to the likes of the average Joe to celebrity events such as the wedding cake for Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

For those who are skilled or advanced bakers and decorators, this might be a bit too basic for you, though you will find the idea's refreshing and fun. For those who are just beginning, this is an excellent teacher and guide that will make your work a showstopper the first time out. Large, clear print plus close, vibrant photo's are the reason I found this so helpful. The only drawback I found was that when you began the actual decorating projects themselves, rather than have photo's of all steps involved in the decorating process, colored pencils drawing were used; they were large and detailed enough, but for my thought, I'd rather see photographs.

This book was given to me as a Christmas present. Thought it would be just another beginner cake decorating book but I was wrong. Planet Cake book is like being in their classroom. It's very informative, provides detailed instructions and pictures, recipes, and truly unique fun designs. It introduced me to the art of ganaching a cake (which I have difficulty with), how to make ganache and techniques on how to keep the cakes moist. I absolutely love this book and would recommend it to any beginner cake decorator like myself.

I bought this book to learn how to make a cake purse, It had so many other ideas as well that now I have new ideas on cakes decorations. It's very helpful with step by step directions on how to do these cakes, I'm totally getting more Planet Cake books!

Cake decorating couldn't be easier. The cakes in this book are fascinating. My particular favourite is the beautiful knee length book. Totally stunning. I have already made the record player cake - I was very pleased with the outcome. Brilliant ideas and easy to follow.

I recently obtained the book, so I have only been able to try a couple of the designs.
The book has very useful tips (one of them has already helped me improve my decorating).
I made the baby fondant cupcakes, and they turned out wonderful thanks to the instructions.

I really like the ideas in this book. I would definitely say they are for the more advanced cake decorator. So far I've only made some of the cupcake ideas which are easier. But hopefully I'll get better at cake decorating and be able to do some of the cake ideas.

I haven't had the opportunity to try any of the recipes or designs yet but the book was all that I expected and more. The designs are amazing with easy to follow instructions and the recipes sound absolutely delightful. Can't wait to play around with it.

I was so impressed with this book that I had to write a review. It was full of so many fun cake recipes that are surprisingly not to difficult. But the thing I liked was that they were challenging enough to make me feel I was learning alot about cake decorating.
Now I just want to do their classes!
