5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful and EASY cakes Oct. 29 2003
By A Customer
I just received the book this week and made the Noah Ark with the help of my three years old daughter. She did roll balls of marzipan to make the animals' head. I had never worked with rolled fondant before, but found it quite easy... though I must admit I did work a lot with polymer clay in the past.
The pictures and instructions are really clear and helpful. I especially like the chart at the beginning with the exact measurements of ingredients needed for each cake, so you don't end up baking too much or too little dough. The designs are adorable and suitable from baby shower to young teenagers' birthday. Very little sculpting skills are needed to model these cute caracthers. I really think a child 8 y.o. and older could create them successfully. If you can play with playdough you can make those cake. Of course, it does take longer than making a cake out of a mix box, but it really worth the effort. If you don't care much for rolled fondant, you can always cover you cake with marzipan... my kids like marzipan a lot more than buttercream icing!
This book is a good introduction on sculpted cakes that makes me want to explore this art further. Now I need more books from Debbie Brown!

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute cakes for the children. Sept. 5 2002
This is another great cake book by Debbie Brown. I've been reading reviews by other people. One thing you need to know is that all of Debbie Brown's cakes are 3D. Made with a cake base and fondant over the top to give a full 180 to 360 degree view. If you want conventional looking 2D cakes, then her books are not for you. You do need a bit of patience and creativity to make the cakes, but well worth the effort when you see the kids faces light up. That's what I enjoy the most.
Out of all her books, this would be the best starting point for beginners.
I've made many of her cakes for the whole family and would highly recommend them all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Only the pictures was worth it... Feb. 4 2002
By Hazel
I have no idea what the author was thinking. I think she has the cakes so nicely done so that children can ooo and ahhh. The pictures are great, however I did want to follow along. I have never used that form of decorating before. There should have been a better title to describe the book. If you have no experience with suagar paste, I don't suggest this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful ! Jan. 28 2002
By Sanooy
This is one of my favorite cake decorating books!!
The book is very well structured and the cakes are beautifully presented. The book contains 50 amazing ideas, each provided with clear instructions and illustration. It starts with an introduction followed by information about the equipments, basic recipes and techniques used in the book. There is also a chart of cake quantities (the quantities of ingredients for each cake).
I appreciate the idea of printing a small picture of the finished cake besides each name in the table of contents. That helped me choose or find a cake without having to go through the whole book searching for it. The cakes might look too hard to achieve, but you will find it quite easy following the clear instructions, the templates and the step-by-step photographs. I made the Mini Monsters' cake when my 7 years old niece had a party for her schoolmates, and they all loved it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! Inspiring . . . Nov. 2 2001
I'm very glad to have this book for reference in my "cake library". Very clever ideas! Some of these could be duplicated in buttercream, while others need to be done in gumpaste, fondant or ChocoPan. If you haven't heard of ChocoPan, it is the same consitency as fondant, but it's made of CHOCOLATE! Much more tasty alternative to achieve the same result. I highly recommend this book.
