Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Peters ( Colette's Cakes , LJ 8/91) was a designer at Tiffany's before starting a successful cake-designing business in New York City, and her artistic talents are evident in the elaborate, often jewellike cookies, cakes, and ornaments and decorations in her new book. Decoration is the star in this collection of whimsical fantasies, from stunning stained glass cakes to a miniature Victorian greenhouse constructed of royal icing. There are some less complicated projects, and holiday bakers will be inspired by the cut-out cookies and gift ideas--but busy cooks would probably have to start now to complete some of these creations before next year's Christmas! For most baking collections.

From Booklist

From the creator of Colette's Cakes comes a splendid collection of Christmas confections, cookies, cakes, and other creations. Plenty of novel ideas appear beautifully illustrated on these pages, but most will be too difficult for the amateur, even though precise instructions are given for every item. There are a few, such as Christmas cookie boxes and edible ornaments, that the dilettante could attempt. A elegant treasury of treats. Denise Perry Donavin

Colette Peters is a true artist. Her cakes, which I've seen in person, are remarkable. Her books are very thorough and concise. I am no artist, but I have made several of her cakes and they all turned out great! She is able to explain the cake-making process so that even I can understand how to do it. I have all her books and love them all!

Wanted this book for several years--
Gave up owning this book, due to being out of print with an extremely high resale price ($99.00 plus). Now that it is more reasonable - so I am now a very proud owner! This is a great addition to my collection of her books. She was my first "idol"!

The only thing I was interested in was the cake designs and this one has an incredible chapel design in it out of sugar/royal icing. I haven't made it yet but am planning on doing it for our church dinner this xmas.

She is an amazingly creative cake craftsperson.
Her instructions are good. The pictures are beautiful and do inspire!
It's nice to have decorating info that may not be available elsewhere.
I'm inspired and Christmas is nearing, so I am trying some not so involved but beautiful ideas!

One of the best Christmas cake, cookies & pie books ever. You and I will probably never make a single one of these cakes: who has the time? But they are so much FUN to look at and drool over. Incredibly creative. I've purchased 3 copies so far, as gifts.

Even though Colette's oldest book, it is still full of wonderful cake decorating ideas. Colette is the leader in cake decorating and her works are always truly amazing.
