“World-famous cake designer, Colette Peters, presents a vibrant collection of distinctive creations to inspire home cake makers of all abilities.” (Cakes & Sugarcraft, Autumn 2007)


Colette peters, the celebrated queen of the confectionary arts, unveils an inspiring resource for serious home bakers, professional chefs, and aficionados of Colette's incredible edible architecture. The ingenious cake decorator - whose miraculous and luscious concoctions have appeared everywhere from White House Christmases to royal weddings - presents a master class in cake design and decoration, alongside an all-new selection of her own cake designs. With Cakes to Dream On, Colette's inspired creations can now be rendered into show-stopping cakes of your own. Cakes to Dream On reveals the secrets to fashioning gorgeous and utterly distinctive cakes for all occasions - whether it's an opulent marriage reception (the majestic Ivory Wedding Cake) or a fanciful children's party (the whimsical Homage to Dr. Seuss). Colette presents designs for cake architecture ranging from the imperial splendor of Dolce de Medici, to the elegant grace of Bride's Vintage Cameo, to the topsy-turvy daydream of Mad Tea Party.

Colette begins with the foundations: she illuminates step by step the process of constructing a multitiered cake, from determining serving sizes and choosing appropriate cake pans to making fillings, and ultimately stacking layers so they don't tumble off the table. Cakes to Dream On also discloses insider tricks of the trade: Colette's easy-to-follow instructions in techniques such as sugarwork, gumpaste, brush embroidery, and piping will help readers recreate the spectacular effects of this singular confectioner's toolbox. Bakers - and their enthusiastic audiences - will discover that these sensual masterpieces tantalize the palate as much as they do the eye. Colette's cake recipes include the Coco-Loco Cake, an alluring marriage of coconut and coffee; the Meringue Buttercream and its luscious lemon, raspberry, and mocha variants; and the ambrosial caramel-tinged Heavenly White Cake. As breathtaking as Colette's cake works appear, her clear explanations of technique are meant to stimulate readers' creative instincts and give them ideas for crafting their own distinctive confections.

With more than 150 dazzling full-color photographs illustrating both processes and finished presentations, and more detailed instruction than ever before, Cakes to Dream On will inspire readers to create their own mouthwatering masterpieces. Colette's master class is truly a launchpad for cake lovers' own confectionary visions.

Es ist ein Kuchentraum-Buch für jeden der gerne in einem etwas größeren Stil backt. Das Buch zeigt einem sehr genau wie man die dargestellten Kuchen nachbacken kann, ebenso wie man selber "Kuchen-Figuren" entstehen lassen kann.
Ich gebe zu, ein paar der Kuchen sind eindeutig etwas... extravagant.
Was ich ein wenig schade finde ist das es nicht wirklich einen Kuchen gibt der nicht "Übermäßig" bunt ist. Alles ist immer in sehr vielen Farben und Mustern und Verziehrungen, was ich fantastisch finde, doch ich bin niemand der zehn Verschiedene Farben in einem Kuchen braucht. Deswegen nur vier Sterne.
Die "Bauten" der Kuchen sind großartige Ideen und mit guten Hilfestellungen.
Größtenteils ist dieses Buch ein Buch zum Träumen und zum Faszinieren nicht wirklich zum Nachbacken in der Art wie es in dem Buch dargestellt ist. Doch die Ideen sind wirklich nett.

These are truly cakes to dream upon...not realistic to make unless you are a five star pastry chef. The photos are yummy eye candy, and I think this book is more to inspire you, rather than to copy her designs exactly. She does give detailed instructions, and even a few recipes, for those daring enough to take on the challenge. Nevertheles, a very beautiful book, even if I cannot make the tea pot cake on the cover. Smile!

HASH(0x947f1498) von 5 Sternen Great Cake Designs. Good Book for Professionals 19. Januar 2005
Von B. Marold - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
`Cakes to Dream On', subtitled `A Master Class in Decorating' by major American pastry artist and teacher, Colette Peters has the ambition to be an advanced class in multi-tiered cake decorating. This ambition is not to be taken lightly, as there is very little in this book for the amateur home / bake sale cook. This is not to say that the book is not chocked full of great ideas, if you already know a lot about how to work with royal icing, fondant, marzipan, and multi-layered cakes. I have made a two and three layered birthday cake in my day, but these creations are entirely out of my league.

The book consists of four general parts. The first part is the first chapter on `How to Make a Decorated Cake', which covers materials to use as the base of a multi-layered cake, who to reinforce the layers, and how to make crooked cakes on purpose. For those few of you out there who actually make tiered cakes, this is one of the more useful topics, although I confess much of it is pretty common sensical.

The second part of the book is the next eight (8) chapters, which are almost all alike in being simply collections of decorated cakes done by the author and her company with instructions on how to make these cakes and their decorations. The instructions assume the person making the cake has access to a lot of specialized tools, materials, and specialized training. One decorated cake chosen at random requires:


Tracing Wheel

Gumpaste Ribbon Roses and Leaves

Royal Icing dots on wires (oh my)

Luster dust

Royal Icing

Gumpaste Pearls

Three foamboard circles

Foamboard base

Gumpaste curly hearts

Lemon Extract

Piping bag and #2 tip

Oval shaped dragees


Descriptions of how to construct several of the cakes include printed templates for preparing some of the designs on the cake. I find these particularly unhelpful, as they require one to have an enlarging photocopier handy to enlarge the diagrams on heavy paper from which they can be cut and used as a template. Now I am certain that a commercial pastry shop would have such a copier, so this reinforces my impression that this book is really meant primarily as an idea source for other pastry professionals.

The third section is recipes for cakes and icings. One is likely to find as good or better recipes for these things in books by Maida Heatter, Nick Malgieri, or Rose Levy Beranbaum. If your primary interest is in baking birthday cakes or bakesale cakes, I strongly suggest you get Beranbaum's `The Cake Bible' (which happened to win best cookbook of the year from the IACP a few years back) instead of investing in this book which works much better as coffee table decoration than as a manual for cake baking. Beranbaum includes such things as candy and nut embellishments, food processor fondant, rolled fondant, chocolate fondant, pastillage, rose modeling paste, crystal flowers, as well as her extensive recipes for cake, fillings, and icings.

The fourth section has a title suggesting that now the `master class' in techniques really begins. This chapter includes short sections on which one could easily write a whole book, such as:

Mixing paste colors into Fondant

Painting with Powdered Colors

Airbrushing a cake

Fondant Decorations

Gumpaste Decorations

Piping Techniques

Run-in Sugar

Brush Embroidery

Making Edible Crystal Beads

Sugar Beads

Basic Techniques

- Dividing a Round Cake evenly for Decorating

- Sculpting a Cake

- Getting Cakes from Here to There

Quick Reference Guide to Tools and Ingredients

Without a doubt, Ms. Peters' cakes are knockouts and her photographs and techniques are chocked full of ideas for professionals. Jacques Torres and Ewald Notter are not going to endorse just anyone's book. It is just that her book is simply not very well organized to teach people with modest skills and objectives.

So, if your objective is to daydream or to open a professional decorated cake store, this book is for you. If you simply want to improve your cake baking and decorating skills a bit, get Beranbaum's book and an inexpensive pamphlet on cake decorating from Wilton at your nearest hobby mart.

I took this class with Colette Peters this summer, and this book now makes sense to me. It is really for those of us who already know how to decorate cakes using fondant and gumpaste. This is much more about the engineering of these crooked cakes, and techniques. Definately not for the beginner.

Von Glenn Jordan Hines - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I am a (very) amateur cake decorator. I have been using Ms. Peters' books to make cakes for about 5 years, now. I have always been impressed at how she is able to show you in her books exactly how to create one of her cakes. I feel very successful creating cakes that I never could without the help of these books. This latest is no exception. I will never rise to the level of Ms. Peters' artistry, but she gives me something to strive for. And whenever I attempt to recreate one of her cakes, I get raves (I just don't show them the photo of how the cake is SUPPOSED to look).

These books are so much fun, and I have learned a lot from them without ever having taken a class.

Von B Tricci - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This book is absolutely mind-blowing.

I was not familiar with Ms Peters' work previously and after seeing this book was inspired to take a look at her earlier books. It was interesting to see how she has developed since "Colette's Cakes" -- her imaginative designs, her sense of color, her sense of whimsy -- even her writing, has grown with her talent.

This is, however, 'A Master Class in Decorating' as the title indicates. Although I think an attentive beginner could readily follow her instructions, as with anything, innate talent and experience will play a large part in the end result.

I imagine there will be those who will look at this book and think it is far too elaborate for the average person capabilties.

Well, if one never aspires to greater heights, one will always be.......average.

This is a book for inspiration.

HASH(0x947f1eac) von 5 Sternen This book is mainly a catalogue, not a master class book as the title states 4. Februar 2009
Von J. Pruneda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I bought this book, I though it was going to be very instructional and as the name says that it was going to be a Master Class, I was very disappointed, this book is only a catalog of the cakes Colette is able to accomplish and photos on how they looked.
In terms of learning it does not provide anything, there is very little explaining, no step by step instructions nor photos for the whole construction process (which would be needed due to the complexity of the designs presented), recipes range from 80 guests to up to 200.
I guess the author wasn't even interested in scaling the recipes for "regular" cooks.
If you want only to look at the pictures, then you can visit her website, if you want to actually learn then this is not for you.
