From the Back Cover
Twisted Cakes subverts sugary sweet cakes and celebration baking to produce designs with a nod to the dark side, all executed with a wicked sense of humor. From eyeball mini cakes for Halloween to a cake that looks like a lamb chop to amaze barbecue guests, there's a daring design for every occasion, including Valentine's Day, weddings, birthdays, and special events.
The author of Twisted Cakes, Debbie Goard, is an innovative Californian cake maker who has appeared on The Food Network, has a large internet following, and teaches classes on baking and cake creating to a wealth of eager students. Her instructions are easy to follow, even for the most challenging designs, and the 20 cake designs and recipes featured in Twisted Cakes are each accompanied by full-color photos.
Goard's cake-making directions will whet appetites and please novice and experienced bakers. As an added bonus for readers, the back of the book contains a pocket with design templates and stencils to create all of the terrifying cakes, such as the knife shape for stabbed cupcakes and ear and heart shapes for the 'Ears to You Dear' cake. Think of Twisted Cakes as a guide to making unique, creepy, crafts that are hard to look away from.

I was thrilled with the (really freaky) two-headed pig cake, as Debbie provided instructions that I could use for my very first attempt at a standing 3D cake. While my My Little Pony was no where near being as perfect and polished as Debbie's work, there is NO way I would have been able to even attempt such a thing without some help.
The entire time I was working on that cake, I was inwardly fuming at sugarartist "radkoguy"'s review relegating Debbie's book to the bargain book bin. Firstly: What a rotten thing to say! Secondly: So what if some of the designs are "hardly ground-breaking"? I have a gigantic collection of cake books, and I have been decorating for quite a few years now, and I have yet to see another book with this kind of information in it. There are plenty of very useful techniques demonstrated here.
My summation: The designs are completely gross, but that was the entire point here. There is a ton of useful information for creating sculpted cakes in general, and I'm grateful to Debbie for sharing her knowledge with us. I'm looking forward to Debbie's next book!
This book is written so that someone with basic cake construction, airbrushing and fondant skills can manage to re-create some of the wonderful cakes in the book. Not really written for someone with very basic or elementary cake skills but if you have delivered a few Wedding cakes that have not toppled or collapsed and have your basic fondant skill and would like a bit of a challenge, then THIS book is for you.
I love the fact that Debbie Goard has included the templates in a pouch at the end of the book. Debbie, then takes the extra step to tell you what to do to preserve these templates. The cakes in "TWISTED CAKES" by DEBBIE GOARD can be done. You can't really fail with her instructions, picture tutorials and you can take many, many ideas from how she stages her cakes.
Great job Debbie, I can't wait for her next book to come out.
