I was hoping for a book that was about real cakes and flowers. What I found was a book where the flowers are made and the cakes look like something you would not eat. I have never seen a cake like this at a wedding. Not only that but the flowers are not pretty. If you are looking for a natural look then this book is not for you.
Wow, Alan Dunn does it again! The gumpaste flowers in this book are so lifelike and the instructions so clear, that he makes learning new flowers an enjoyable experience. A must have book for the professional decorator or for the cake show enthusiast.
As a professional cake decorator, I found Alan Dunn's new book a necessity in my library. His attention to detail and ability to instruct through writing makes the book a bargain. The book is open and in use more often than not.
