    • Pretty spectacular
      Verified Purchase

      I teach cake decorating classes and do an advanced wedding cake class. I brought this book in for my students to look at -- and the next week they *all* had bought it! The cakes are stunning and fortunately MS provides directions for techniques and some pretty amazing recipes -- but there are no step-by-step directions on making any of the cakes. This is not a book for beginning cake decorators. You pretty much have to know your stuff and have an advanced knowledge of cake decorating techniques. Other than that small caveat, it's an awesome book!

    • Full of Incredible Photos
      Verified Purchase

      This is a very comprehensive wedding cake book - from recipes to finished photos -- the quality expected from Martha Stewart. The book is beautiful, full of photos, detailed instructions, recipes, techniques and advice. Though I have not tried the recipes yet, the book is well worth the money just for the extensive photo gallery. I plan to use it in my bakery as a design catalog and idea book. This book shows Martha's excellent taste and why she is consistently "the" trend setter in wedding cake designs for real-life weddings.

      This book was featured on The Today Show. It really sounded like a great book. I wish the book had been organized differently. For example putting all of the recipes together in one section. I had hoped for more recipes. The cakes shown were beautiful. There were a couple of cakes, one being the bubble cake, that I am guessing are for professionals only. The picture was shown but no details given. The book in whole gives the viewer different ideas. I suppose if I were to call this book anything it would be AN IDEA BOOK.
