I was so excited about this purchase and couldn't wait until I received it. I was not disappointed! I have spent the last week looking the new off the pages. The photos are wonderful. They show all the details on the cake which, by the way, are stunning. I can't wait to give some of the designs a try, as the photos have the creative side of the brain working overtime. This book is a keeper! Whether you are a beginner or a master decorator, you will not be disappointed with this purchase.
