This book is AWESOME!,
This review is from: Decorating Cookies: 60+ Designs for Holidays, Celebrations & Everyday (Paperback)
Every picture is beautiful. The book is filled with clever ideas and tips. I love the way her voice comes through in the text. She knows her subject and she knows how to pass the information on. She provides great little stories with many of the designs. She's fun, she's a good teacher, and she does not take herself too seriously. But she is serious about giving the reader everything needed to know on the subject of decorating cookies.
I've looked through many books on cookie decorating and I've never been impressed enough to purchase one......until now. Every single design is one that I would actually want to make. And if (like me) you stand at your kitchen counter with icing bags, couplers, and decorating tips wondering how to assemble them.............she shows you in this book. Many books assume we all know how to do that. But there's also plenty of material for people who already know how to make beautiful cookies.
I also like that these are new designs. I've purchased books and then been surprised to find all the contents on the author's blog. Still, if you are not familiar with this author's blog, you will be a fan after reading this book. I'm ordering this book for everyone I know. It would be a perfect hostess gift, new baby gift, wedding gift, birthday gift, etc., etc. Even if you never decorate a cookie, this book gives you a wonderful reminder to celebrate life......."for holidays, celebrations, & everyday."
