I have to say that this book is WONDERFUL! All the recipes are there and all the techniques are shown. Fantastic book.

Of course, to be good at something, it takes time and practice. Thats okay...in the end, if you follow the directions, even maybe change things about the overall look of it a bit, you'll end up baking those cakes just fine.

I love the little dog cake...its a great start point.

ENJOY!!!!!

The cakes in this book are as beautiful, fun, and creative as you'd expect from Debbie Brown. The author does assume a certain level of experience in cake decorating when she writes the instructions, however, and it takes some artistic talent to make the cakes look like hers; every little detail of how to create that finished product is not included. I'm pretty new to making novelty cakes like these, and this book is a little beyond my skill level right now. Even so, I'm glad I bought it, as it's inspiring and gives me a goal to shoot for.

The book is loaded with ideas of cake decorating. It is very helpful when I am looking for inspiration on my next cake creation. Easy to follow instructions and leaves a lot of ways to expand cake decorating ideas that would fit the occasion. Great book and looking forward to use ideas from the book.

This was my third Debbie Brown book - and I pre-ordered it since I liked the others I'd gotten. Fairly disappointed in this one. Seemed simpler and repetitive. Granted, I don't have a whole mess of children to bake for in my life, but some of the others (Magical Cakes and Enchanted Cakes) had some cool/cute dragon and elfin cakes. Learned my lesson, wait until its out and you can see some pictures or a list of cakes.

It came as promised actually in better shape then I was expecting and the ideas were fantastic. I'm not a cake maker but I try to get ideas from every where and this book helped with getting ideas. The title is all wrong though should be Gorgeous & Gruesome Galore!!! Very good book and fun.
