This was the next step for me after Maisie's marzipan figures book and it is fantastic. The instructions are clear and the cakes are clever, funny and full of personality. You can also use the fondant creatures as a starting point for your own ideas and cake creations. I loved this book.

It has good variety and good instructions, easy enough for a beginner-intermediate level but not too easy that it becomes boring such as the basic lessons that Wilton offers

I was amazed when I got this book at how adorable the projects are! Such cute ideas, and I LOVE that there are complete step-by-step instructions on how to create the adorable people and animals in the book. Definitely worth the money and now I want to buy the rest of Maisie's books.

This book has some great tips in the front of the book for non-experienced decorators and bakers.
The directions are easy to follow, and there are a few great cakes inside that are absolutely adorable!

I made the cake on the front cover and got rave reviews. I would highly recommend this one if you do children's cakes. I have used the characters on many different cakes. The instructions are clear, easy to follow and well planned. A must. for fondant character makers.

This was a gift for my 14 yr old niece who by the age of 8 already decided that she wanted to be a pastry chef. This is part of a collection that I started to buy for her. She liked it, but hasn't made anything out of it.
