If you are interested at all in learning more about cake decorating, this book is fantastic! Everyone that has come into my house, seen it and flipped through it all said, “I have to get this book!” It is a larger size paperback book and it’s filled with clear photos throughout that explain in detail how to create gorgeous effects simply and easily.

I was delighted with the many techniques that I felt I could recreate, including the ombre petal technique. It’s as easy as piping mounds of frosting on the cake and then going back and using an offset spatula to create a lovely petal effect.

As long as I can get my frosting the right consistency, not too soft or too stiff, then I feel pretty confident about almost any of the ideas in this book. It was interesting to me how even the simplest techniques can really dress up a cake!
