To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I had already bought this book when it first came out, but no longer have it, so I was thrilled when I saw I could purchase it again. It is wonderful for the complete beginner and offers easy, and very clever, solutions for someone who has no idea about icing cakes. It also showed me that I, a complete novice, can actually create something presentable.
My mother made all my birthday cakes from this, and now my young cousins are still loving it. You won't find directions for Disney characters, but you will find a lot of child-pleasing ideas and fool-proof instructions.
I bought this for my daughter in law and, being an Aussie who had this cookbook growing up, she teared up. She recounted fond memories of choosing her cake each year and how memorable and special it was. She can’t wait to recreate these memories with her own daughter. I guess that means it’s a pretty good cookbook.
The book arrived very dirty. Normally I like this book very much and like to give it away as a baby gift. However; the book arrived in such poor condition that I cannot give it to anyone. Very disappointing.
