    • Nice book

      Nice little book if you are interested in cake decorating, or beginning to decorate cakes. I only wanted to know enough to get by for birthday cakes, etc. Illustrations are just that, illustrations, not actual photos, but clear enough to clearly make out.

    • Cake Decorating for Dummies Book

      My wife has taught cake decorating classes for over 30 years but still wanted this book. It tells you why to do things as well as what to do; and what happens when you try to cut corners with recipes and techniques. She shows it to 'problem' students who question why they need to follow directions so closely. It is not a substitute for hands-on training by a qualified teacher, but it covers the basics pretty well.

    • Purchased item as a gift

      I purchased this book for my aunt, so any information in my review was through her. She said it was very informative; but lacked in pictures. Definitley good for beginners.
