Welcome to the world of baking and decorating!

(NetGalley Synopsis)

My mother used to make beautiful cakes and I always enjoyed helping as a child, For many years as I got older, I didn't do any baking, but I recently started again and love the decorating aspects.

I found this book full of inspirational ideas and some lovely designs. For the most part the instructions seem clear and easy to follow, but it is obvious I am going to need to invest in some more equipment to take my own cakes and biscuits to the next level.

In a few instances, I would have liked a few more step by step pictorial guides, but overall this is a great book for the cake enthusiast, from beginners to the more experienced.

I received this book as a free e-book ARC via NetGalley.
