    Elisa Strauss is the founder and sole designer of Confetti Cakes in New York City. A former designer for Ralph Lauren, Strauss is famous for her whimsical, elaborate, fashion-related cakes. Her work has been featured in dozens of magazines as well as on the Today show, The View, and the Food Network.
    When a world-famous shoe designer walked into his surprise birthday party and saw the cake that was waiting for him--a Manolo stiletto perched alluringly next to a tissue-filled shoebox--it was his turn to ogle someone else's talent. The cake, created by Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes in New York City, was a sensation. Not only did everyone at the party want to know how it was made, they wanted to know how to create something as dazzling themselves.

    This unique book contains projects for every skill level: from gorgeous, sugar-dusted heart cookies to delightful billiard-ball cupcakes, to sculpted cakes in the shape of wine bottles and Chinese takeout boxes, to the extravagantly beautiful, threetiered
    embroidery cake showcased on Sex and the City. With delicious recipes, stunning creations for every occasion, suggestions for time-saving shortcuts, and hot tips for fabulous results, all illustrated with gorgeous photographs and easy-to follow diagrams, THE CONFETTI CAKES COOKBOOK is a must-have for the outrageously chic baker in all of us.

      I love the book but not really what I was expecting. The cakes inside are good but I was looking forward to see more purses cakes, very easy to follow but you need to have experience some how in cakes, easy to do cakes but very dissapointed to have only one puse cake, would like to know if you guys have more books with purses and fancy cakes. Love the book and soon will be making the purse one.

    • the confetti cakes cookbook

      was told that anyone can decorate a cake like a professional with this book. ---- not true if you have never decorated a cake before. the person who said it is the lady who wrote it, and she said it on national t.v. beautiful book, beautiful illistrations, not happy with the the instructions.

    • This book only for very experienced decorator!

      This book has some beautiful cakes, but extremely advanced. This is totally for someone who's already a pro at fondant and gumpaste. And even then be very creative to copy the cakes. Maybe part of it is that the instructions are not enough for all the work that the cakes have. I already make cakes on my own and are at a fair level of decorating, but this is just too much! I enjoyed the cake on the cover, and maybe 5-6 more, More than half of the book is not on cakes, which I was mislead by it's title! Most of the book is on cupcakes and some cookies, so if you enjoy that this is for you. This review is basically for the cake section, since that was what I intended to purchase, a cake decorating book. I own about 20 cake decorating books and all are very helpfull. This is the worse one I own and surely will get rid of.

    • Great for beginners

      While I wouldn't necessarily make all the lovely creations that are in this book, it gives the foundation to create simpler designs which I definitely will do. The directions are clear, ingredient lists are simple, and there are lots of pictures to help.
