My View:
This is the cake book for all season and special occasions – there is something wonderful here for any special gathering of good friends.
The author provides a section of “classic” recipes – for cupcakes, mud cakes , cake pop dough, vanilla sugar cookies, butter creams, frostings, ganache and a how to of working with chocolate and working with tier and layer cakes - there is everything here to ensure you have a great base for all the recipes in the book. I tried and tested the vanilla

So pleased to have won this hardback cookery book in a recent Goodreads First Reads giveaway.

I enjoy creating cupcakes, but nothing on par with the creative designs in this book. Now given me something to think about when I am next making cupcakes! My young grandson was fascinated with the 'A Frightening Feast' chapter. I myself do not have a favourite as all look so tempting.

Glossy pages and the instructions appear to be easy to follow. A plus for me is that the ingredients are weighed in
Far more focused on the decorations than the recipes.
I checked this out of the library to see if I should invest in it. While there are some very cute ideas which I plan to implement and recipes that I want to try I don't I'll add it to my kitchen library.

This is a very pretty book to look at, lots of full color pictures of cakes and decorations, but I really can't see myself actually doing any of this. All of these recipes just seemed a bit to involved for me. The pictures are very cute to look at, but I know I won't bother with making cupcakes in little flower pots for a gardening theme; I'm not making cookies in the shape of butterflies; I won't make a cake in the shape of a hot dog complete with a ketchup packet floating over it pouring on ...more

This book was OK but there was not really anything that I really liked in it. What did stand out were the Chocolate filled pumpkins and tea cup cakes. That looks like something that I would really like to try and make I think that it would be really cool. There were a number of pictures but most things seemed really in depth, and not really easy to make. I think that you would have to be a semi professional. This is beyond what I myself would care to try.

The book itself was gorgeous, but the recepies did not make good cakes at all.

Devoured this as I plan on devouring the desserts! LOVED how she combined two of my greatest loves: party planning and sweets.

I have really enjoyed watching the videos that Elise has put online, and think that this book is a must-have for fans.

There are so many wonderful parts of this book, not just recipes, and I think that's what makes this book so wonderful. There are themes for different celebrations and each has the dessert part covered, but there are added bonuses of decorating ideas, related beverages, and detailed photos to help you plan for your own gala.

One of my favorite parts is that if you're confused

Good basic recipes and some really creative and cute ideas here... though the thought of doing ALL of them for one celebration is a bit much for me to contemplate. Still, when I am planning a party, I'll take a look at this one again.
