Product Description

Of all the decisions that go into planning a wedding, choosing the cake may be the sweetest. Much more than dessert, this beloved wedding symbol should be as special as the bride and groom themselves.

You will learn:
Where to begin- how to decide what style and flavors are right for you, taking into account the season, location, and theme of the event

I just couldn't wait to get this book! If you love to create cakes, and not just bake them, this will feed your appetite for cake baking and decorating, and you will place this alongside your other prized tomes of cake education. It's a wonderful journey of the wedding cake, aka "a good thing". If you purchased Martha's "WEDDINGS" book, this is the expanded and transformed chapter on cakes into this book.

Martha has outdone herself once more in her passion to give us every possible idea, and instruction, to create the wedding cake of our dreams for the day of our dreams. And to join her in this quest is Wendy Kromer, master baker, who worked for Martha for many years, on both Martha's former TV show and for Martha Stewarts "Weddings" magazine; she now owns and operates her own bakery.

While this book was made to help engaged couples decide on what type of cake they would like for their wedding, it also gives instructions should you wish to bake your own wedding cake. For those established bakers and caterers that are looking for ideas and concepts, this will be certainly be a well-referenced tool. The "Album of Cakes" section offers 111 official photographs of cakes, but if you add all photo's of cakes from other parts of this book, you will have well over 135 delectable wedding delights in which to choose.

Martha and Wendy do not hold back on any instruction and it begins with the incredible photography of each cake, frosting, filling, and detail of these stunning cakes. These cakes come from both Martha's former TV show, Martha's "Weddings" magazines, as well as some new ones from collaboration with other cake artists.

As a caterer, I found this book to be a good guide for those who create cakes for special occasions. Many of the cakes in this book are ones that have previously been in "Martha Stewart's Weddings" magazine, and I have made several of them over the years, but it is nice to have the collection all in one source. For the inexperienced, some of the instructions may seem a bit vague, but that is the martha Stewart way, as mostly she assumes that everyone knows how to do the basics. If you've never done this type of baking/creating before, this book is not for you. I do recommend it for those who do this professionally or as an advanced hobby.

I cannot add much to Toni "the bookworm's review." The book is gorgeous -coffee table quality. It is loaded with full color photographs, including numerous examples of different piping patterns. The decorating style is very Martha Stewart: classically elegant. The book does not provide pictures of whimsical cakes - there are other books on the market for that.

While I did not buy the book for cake recipes (so I can't judge the quality and flavor of the ones provided), I did buy the book to complement a wedding cake decorating class that I am taking. If you are a baker who is very interested in cake decorating, or need instruction on how to prepare large, multi-layered cakes, "Wedding Cakes" is very helpful. If you are willing to put the considerable amount of time needed to perfect these techniques, (and believe me, it takes a lot of practice), this book is a wonderful resource. You will, however, have to be patient; your cakes will not look like Martha's the first dozen times you try!

Im an intermediate cake decorator. I bought this book for inspiration and hoping for a few tips here and there. This is a great book. There are lots of really nice pictures, there are quite a few recipes and also quite a few "how to's". If you are a beginner and are looking for a book to learn from, this is probably not the book for you, as it's not very instructional in my opinion. The authors do not show decorating processes from start to finish but assume you have some previous knowledge. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in it. Also the price on Amazon beats the bookstore price . I almost bought it in a big retail bookstore but decided to look here first. I saved more than $20.00

I purchased this book because I was interested in learning how to make wedding cakes. My first, which wasn't even a wedding cake, it was my neice's 3rd birthday cake, came out so beautifully. I used the recipes for the Vanilla Bean Sponge Cake and the Chocolate Butter Cake...both were PHENOMENAL and I got rave reviews. I even had three people inquire about me making cakes for them!!! Although some of the recipes may seem a little tedious, I truly believe that it is the small things that you do that make these cakes wonderful. They take time (LOTS of time...mine took about 15 hours from start to finish!!!) and cutting corners does not get you the best results. I have already recommended this book to many people interesetd in learning to bake like myself! BUY IT!!! I know its expensive....but it will last you for a VERY long time!!!

I have bought a lot of cake decorating books but if you are looking for a guide to decorating cakes I thouroughly recommend buying a collette peteres or peggy porschen. Even though this book has a lot of photo's it provides some information not much and honestly for the price I would prefer to buy a wedding cake magazine. This book was a dissapointment not very helpful or useful really.
