    This book has great information and tips. The basic instructions with picture aids help tremendously. I learned so much just in the first few chapters (as a beginner)! Not to mention she gives you all her best recipes for cakes and icings! The only thing I didn't care for was the older fashion style of her cakes. Most of the instructions for the details to the cakes, I would not personally use (which was half the book). However, overall I enjoyed the book and I am figuring out how to adjust her details to my style.

    This book is a must for any decorator's library. It is informative and the pictures are great, too. It is ideal for the beginner or for someone who has been doing this for awhile. There are receips and all kinds of tips. She has put together an excellent book. For the price, it is well worth it. I first bought it at full retail and felt that I got a great deal, then loaned it out to a student and never got it back. This time I got an even better deal on the price so I was delighted to get it again. This is a book I recommend to all my students, I think you'll like it too. I won't be loaning this one out!
