Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful book! I enjoyed this book. The cakes just look so beautiful. I also enjoyed the recipes from this book. My favorite part is that there is a chart where it tells you how much batter you would need for a certain size of cake pan. I find that to be very useful in terms of planning and baking the cake tiers. Definitely a must-have for home bakers and cake decorators.
