I am no cook. Therefore, I will never be trying the techniques in this book. My review is simply from a pictorial perspective - the pictures are luscious! It's not all cakes - there are cookies and cupcakes and petit fours as well. They all look amazing and make me wish I had the patience to try some of the design tips out. If you like looking at gorgeous pictures of yummy treats, this book will hit the spot.

First of all it is truly beautiful book, the pictures and designs are amazing to look at.

Second- it is not a recipe book. It does contain basic recipes for cookies, three cakes, sugar syrups, buttercreams and ganache which is enough to make already some different cakes but thats it. No complicated recipes.

I would have given this book 5 stars for the beautiful cakes and cookies decorated in it, but I would have to be a pastry chef to pull these off. I don't even know where you could purchase some of the decorations used.

this book was beautiful to look at. It has treats that you'd find in a bakery shop. Easy directions on how to make some stuff. Little too putzy for me but doable.
