This book is beautiful. As a beginner cookie artist it is the dream resource guide to techniques, recipes, and colors. I am so grateful to Georganne for her witty and wonderful personality. She explains things in a way that makes you really feel like you can do it too. I would recommend this to anyone who loves to bake and anyone who already makes decorated cookies. It's awesome. --Amazon
I just love this book! It is so full of wonderful information and I can't wait to try some of the color combinations. What a great information book this is. Not only full of information but of wit and fun! Thank you so much for writing it. It was certainly worth the wait! --Amazon
This book is now my bible when it comes to cookie decorating. Not only is it full of great ideas but has easy to follow instructions with clear step by step photos. The information is easy to find and Georganne has such a delightful writing voice that I found myself laughing out loud and feeling like she was sharing a cup of tea with me as she showed me how to do it. Highly recommend to ANYONE that is interested in cookie decoration no matter your skill level - if you only have room for Cookie Book on your shelf then this is it! --Amazon

This was why I was rather disappointed in the layout of this book in that it is a confusing layout of techniques and lessons, all being set in alphabetical order rather than a systematic order for more easy learning. For instance, most baking/teaching books have the preparatory section, equipment section, recipe section in the beginning of the book. In this book, everything is scattered in an alphabetical order as opposed to titled sections. For instance, "consistency of icing" is next to "cookie cutters" or you see a couple of cookie exercises, then a paragraph with an explanation about a tool or a technique, then back to the cookie exercises. Food coloring is next to a fox cookie, frame cookie, then a section on freezing cookies and royal icing. Perhaps for some, this might be an appreciated outline of learning, but for me, this is a very difficult way of trying to find the section you're looking for, let alone having to learn steps in order. I would offer that in the next printing, they might consider changing the layout of the book.
Also, I purchased the color cards; they are a very nice portable tool, but these are already in the book, so if you're satisfied with them being in the book, you wouldn't need to purchase them in addition.
So for content, I would give it 4 stars, but for ease of learning, the layout would be 2 stars.........meeting in the middle would be 3 stars. If you're good with whatever order the book is displayed, then this would be a wonderful cookie decorating book for you.
Thanks, I would definitely recommend this book just for the color charts but make sure you look for another book for the basic decorating details.
