I love this book!

I found the information on color combinations and flower techniques very informative. I immediately tried them out on a cake I made and I was totally impressed with the results. I made wisteria flowers following the directions in the book and they were beautiful. My cake looked like a work of art!

Original Style, Great Taste, Beautiful Techniques

I have decorated cakes for more than 20 years, and have devoured cake decorating books from the early days of Wilton in the 70's to the more recent publications of artists such as Colette Peters. I first learned of Ann Warren's beautiful cakes, unique style, techniques and recipes on a fairly detailed segment of Martha Stewart Living on Lifetime, and saw a couple of short segments on the Food Network -- I tried them and I'm hooked. If I had the privilege and pleasure of spending a day with anyone in the field of cake decorating, it would be Ann Warren.The book does a great job of explaining all the important details of her unique style and gives detailed recipes and instructions. I highly recommend it. Though there are several pages of color photos of Ann's beautiful cakes, I would like to have seen more of them and more close-up shots of some of the flowers for studying techniques. Perhaps a sequel???

clever and challenging!

When I first saw this book I had just begun decorating cakes (initially I thought it was too difficult without enough pictures.) I didn't buy it until two months later after reading and investigating much of what the cake decorating world is currently producing. I feel strongly that it is more rewarding to create cakes that people can actually eat and enjoy, not just look at, then pick all the flowers off. I love this book because although it does not offer all of it's secrets outright, it has challenged me and given me a foundation to begin my own craft of cake decorating art. Most of all I appreciate the detailed information on colors. I have read my book at least 15 times and continue to absorb new information every time. This is the best book that I own. Thank you Anne and I can't wait for your next book!

The Cupcake Cafe makes GREAT FOOD!

OK -- I have an admission to make: I haven't yet read the book. But I'm qualified to comment because: I am the founder and former owner of The Well-Bred Loaf,Inc., where Mike and Ann Warren met. In addition, I'm Mike's cousin!! Now that you know how objective I am, I can tell you that Mike and Ann really learned their trade, then turned it into art! And they are masters of buttercream -- none of that sweet, sugary icing found on so many cakes elsewhere. Both Mike and Ann have a way with words, and I'm looking forward to reading the book, myself.
