Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin von dem Buch sehr begeistert. Es ist zwar mal wieder auf englisch, aber wie so oft bei solchen Büchern, leicht verständlich. Die Ideen in diesem Buch sind sehr schön und die Tipps und Tricks sind äußerst hilfreich. Manche Sachen sind zwar etwas schwer für Kids, aber eine geübte Mami kann vieles vorbereiten und ausbessern.

2.0 von 5 Sternen A bit disappointed in this book... 25. Oktober 2012
Von MKinz - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
First, let me say that I have been decorating cakes for years and I am very familiar with fondant and sugar gum paste methods. So, I am able to look at all of these final pictures of the cakes and reproduce them without issue. However, if I was a person that was new to cake decorating, this book would be horrible. The cakes are cute and fun, but they aren't really much different than the pictures you can find for free online. So, when I looked at this book I was looking at it from a perspective of... could you make the cakes if you had never had any cake decorating training and could you make them with a child? I feel the answer to this is that it is highly unlikely.

The book sections are divided very strangely. It is kind of divided into three major sections, 1) Tools and Recipes 2) Projects 3) Techniques. I tried one of the cake recipes (Cereal Cupcakes) and the recipe was good, but not great.

RECIPE SECTION - There are only a total of six cookie/cake recipes and only four frosting recipes. What they refer to as sugar paste I would refer to as fondant and what they refer to as petal paste, I would refer to as gum paste. I found it interesting that they provided recipes for buttercream, maple frosting and a ganache, but they don't give you any recipes for the sugar gum paste and the fondant. They tell you to purchase these at the store. I would never purchase store bought fondant, as it tastes terrible. You can make very good fondant very easily with marshmallows and powdered sugar that tastes wonderful.

PROJECT SECTION - The second section is the project section. It gives you a whole lot of step text and very limited visuals/photos. The photos it does give you don't really seem to be all that helpful. Some are even a bit fuzzy. Extremely lacking in help if you have never decorated cakes before and a child certainly couldn't do it. I had my teenager help me that also knows how to decorate cakes and she said, "It doesn't even show you what to do."

TECHNIQUES SECTION - Some of these cakes are pretty technical. I wish all technical information would have just been put with the cake project we were working on. But instead, it is all in the back of the book in the last section. So, we went to the techniques section hoping to get more detail on how they wanted things done. Basically, there still wasn't detailed information. They showed the final piece done, but hardly any visuals on each step to get to the final. For example, there is a really cute cake in here with teddy bears having a picnic. It shows all of the pieces... two bears, cake grapes, chicken, etc that are part of the picnic. It shows the finished result and it shows the smaller completed pieces like a single bear, but no in between visuals. There is a beautiful winter swan cake that also has the same issues.

Overall, I have a lot of cake decorating books and this is by far my least favorite. If you are a visual learner, you probably will not like this book. However, if you are a person that prefers text and follows textual instructions better, then you might like this. For me, I wouldn't recommend it.

Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Got kids? Need some "fun" time? Then here's the perfect book to help you spend that time with the kids in a fun and foody way.

"Cake Decorating with Kids" is the outcome of 2 moms who love their kids and love their profession and made a rather enjoyable inclusion of both. Jill Collins and Natalie Saville are the co-owners of "The Great Little Cake Company" located in Great Britain. While their talents stretch across the baking field with cakes, wedding cakes, specialty cakes, etc, it was the love of family that brought them to this, their second book. (Their first book from the Bake Me, I'm Yours series is entitled "Whoopie Pies"; great little book!)

The projects range from simple to more intense; you can determine the project based on the age and talent of the children. You'd be surprised what some aspiring little bakers can tackle!

There are ten themes with other various projects within such as cake pops, cupcakes, etc. The dexterity of your wee ones fingers will help you figure out whether they will need some help or whether they can just have a go at it. For an example, there is a cake project where the cake is shaped like an apple and it has an adorable worm sticking out of it; very simple project but loads of fun. Other projects have more elaborate steps but which can be just as much fun for older or advanced baking kids. But to be honest, you would need to be just a tad familiar with the baking kitchen and the skills involved for some of the projects such as working with fondant, cutting out shapes with cutters, making cake pops----nothing requiring a degree mind you, but just being comfortable with some of the mediums out there. Otherwise, there are plenty of simpler projects for even first-time folks that will slowly get everyone to the next level. The weights and measures, as well as baking times, are given in both American and Metric versions. They have supplied plenty of photography to make the steps easy to follow, especially if you are a visual person who appreciates that type of instruction.

They begin the book with Introductory Sections that may sound too simple but are necessary, especially if you want to teach the children the basics of tools, equipment, recipes for the cakes and cookies and cupcakes and how to follow them, plus toppings and flavorings, cake size and amount determinations. But for me the best was the "Safety in the Kitchen". Kids get excited and want to just start working but if you are starting the project from scratch, this would be a great time to teach them the do's and dont's of kitchen safety.

As an aside, you will probably be having to repeat yourself a thousand times not to stick the frosting bag in their mouths; I make sure that each child has their own set of bags (I makes for more work but lets be honest here). And one more thing........try to have them wear aprons otherwise you will need to hose them down after.

The projects are:

FAMILY CELEBRATION Cake and cakepops and balloon cookies are great party food; how you can take a simple cake and turn it into a real piece of art is all explained. For this cake, I really appreciated the simple but wow effect of making patterns in fondant so that your cake really pops! (They took white fondant and layed various cut strips of black then lightly rolled them into the white fondant; place that on the cake and watch the smiles on the kids faces!

WHITE CHRISTMAS This was probably my favorite. They teach you how to create gorgeous white swans which "swim" in a pond in front of white Christmas trees that are set in the background. So very, very pretty along with the other treats.

EASTER SUNDAY An extremely simple cake shape with enough required work that your kids will probably all be able to take turns piping the "feathers" on this adorable chick without arguing. Cookies and cupcakes finish the theme with alot of pastel prettiness!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN Now this would probably be a more "grown up" of projects for the older kids. Ghosts and goblins, eyeballs and skulls will surely keep things busy and fun as they will try to gross each other out.

PICNIC PARTY Here's where little fingers will have a fine time making little food for the Bear family picnic. Shaping the bears and the tiny food for the bear picnic, plus cookies and whoopie pies, will make for a grand time.

MOTHERS DAY DELIGHT Wow! What a pretty gift this will be for any blessed Mom or Grandmom! The cover photo of a cake with delicate butterflies (that are so easy to make!) plus flower cookies and cupcakes will make any special mom smile!

GIFTS for TEACHERS This was soooo cute! You won't mind the worm you find in this adorable apple-shaped cake! Edible "pencils" and candy apple red cake pops finish out the fun.

SUMMER FAIR An easy cake and simple treats make for a festive party.

RAINY DAY FUN This would definitely be a rainy day project, but any day would be fun to bring together the abstract swirls and splatters in this palette of bright and happy colors to any cake or cupcakes. But the best part is the colorful surprise inside the cake!

BE MY VALENTINE What a great way to get the whole family involved in loving Valentine treats and goodies that have chocolate all over them! I think the cake that is surrounded by chocolate swirls pieces (cigarellos) was one of the prettiest parts. And you need not just go with regular chocolate; you could easily substitute this with white chocolate. What a combination of red and white and wow!

They finish the book with a couple more sections that delve into the more detailed aspects of cake construction, assembling, carving, dowelling, piping, flooding, figure modelling, etc. This was a righteous chapter in and of itself and is a great primer for the first time decorator, in particular for the adult. You're given an extra lesson in the basics of cake decorating and you will really appreciate the way they show you.

The end of the book gives you suppliers who can be found in the UK, Australia, and the US. Templates are also included.

I thought this was a fun book that any adult would enjoy with children of just about any age. I always tell the kids that they best part of any project is that you get to eat your mistakes and for some reason, they love to get involved. Thanks Jill and Natalie!!

3.0 von 5 Sternen UK book 5. November 2012
Von Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome - Veröffentlicht auf
Not translated for a US market.

Recipes ask for superfine sugar, harder to find than granulated sugar and more expensive to buy here in the USA. Terms are confusing and require some research such as petal paste (gum paste), sugarpaste (fondant), and sugar dough (fondant with tylo added) and recipes for those items are not included.

Beautiful photos, many of children decorating goodies.

Wish the instructions detailed piping a little better. It is my understanding to stop applying pressure to the piping bag before pulling up but I don't see that written in the book under piping with buttercream.

Kitchen scale is required to prepare recipes and projects do not give detailed photos for each step listed in the book. The modeling projects seem ambitious even for adult beginners.

OK if you know what you are doing but maybe not for beginners in the US due to terminology issues. Mini cookie cutters would be a must for working with children. I would not except all the projects to be doable for a non-sculpting child or adult as it looks frustrating as a beginner task to get a pleasing swan or bear. More photos would have been beneficial.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Cute But Not for Kids or the Inexperienced. 3. November 2012
Von Antigone Walsh - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Although this book is chock full of pretty pictures, the directions are spare and insufficient for kids or those with limited experience. Written by two British bakers, it contains terminology which at times both confusing and annoying. Note that in their recipes they use castor (superfine) sugar and "self-raising" flour. Neither confectioners sugar (what they call icing sugar) nor granulated sugar can be substituted. Super fine sugar can be purchased at a premium in most supermarkets but is more easily made by placing granulated sugar in a food processor until it is powdered. Similarly, self rising flour, while a staple in the south, is rare where I am in New York. Again, it can be easily made by combining on cup of all purpose flour less two tsps with 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt. They suggest you buy your sugarpaste (fondant) and petal paste (gum paste) and do not provide recipes for them. I find homemade preferable to the store bought and neither is terribly difficult to prepare. There is also something referred to as "sugardough" in the Teddy Bear Picnic project. I am not sure what that is, I am assuming fondant. They provide measurements both in weight ( grams, ounces) not volume (cups). The conversions from metric to english are odd, ie, 9 3/4, 11 1/4, 7 ounces. Most little kids get a kickout of using measuring cups, not scales. There is also apparently a difference between European and American eggs. You can use a Euroopean large or an American extra large. Apparently there is no need to substitute large American eggs for European eggs as nothing is mentioned in the recipes where they use medium eggs.

The projects themselves are cute but not wildly inventive. I have seen versions of pretty much all of the designs. I don't find that they are especially directed for kids, although they are charming.

There are only a few recipes. I was going to make the sugar cookies but noticed that there was no baking powder or soda included. This was one of the recipes that actually used all purpose flour not self rising. All the sugar cookie recipes I have made included one or the other. So instead, I made the maple frosting. It was good although I did add a pinch of salt.

Althogh this is an attractive book, it is not one I will be using. Experienced decorators will be uninspired and the novices will be confused. The projects are not especially kid friendly and not broken down into easily manageable steps. Sure you could have the roll some fondant or cut out some decorations but you could do that without this book.

This book is not for kids or beginners, the projects and techniques are complicated but the book is pretty the pictures are great.
The projects are definitely for someone with experience on cake decoration.
