Not What I Expected from The Whimsical Bakehouse June 15 2010
By Shoe La La - Published on Amazon.com

I am the proud owner of The Whimsical Bakehouse: Fun to Make Cakes... I think that is the best cake book ever written. However, this review is for the Whimsical Bakehouse's latest cake book, Kids' Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse. I had been watching for the release date of this book with high anticipation. I could not wait to get my hands on it because I was so impressed with the Fun to Make Cakes book from the Whimsical Bakehouse.

My book finally arrived yesterday. I opened it, along with my children, and flipped through the book page by page. I have to say that the first third of the book is just recipes and the written word. I finally made it to the substance of the book, the photographs and cake ideas. I kept flipping through, hoping with the turn of each page, that I would be more impressed and find THE CAKE for my kids' fourth birthday. After all, the jungle/zoo animal cake that I created for their third birthday, straight from the ideas of The Whimsical Bakehouse: Fun to Make Cakes..., would be very difficult to top! After I made it the last page, I found myself extremely disappointed. There was no WOW cake in this book for me. I wasn't as impressed with what was even there. The only cake that even slightly appeals to me is the circus cake on the cover. None of the others inside the pages of the book even compare, although my daughter would probably disagree with me there, as she rather excitedly pointed out that she wanted the pink girlie cake inside, complete with a wig, makeup and hair accessories, etc. created from chocolate wafers.

I'm hesitant to give this book 3 stars. However, for someone who has never owned a Whimsical Bakehouse book, you may be completely impressed with the ideas presented here. As a veteran of the Whimsical Bakehouse ideas and creator not-so-extraordinaire (I'm still learning), I found the Kids' Cakes from the Whimsical Bakehouse book a bit disappointing. I hope to find uses for some of the ideas in the future, but find it highly unlikely.

I bought this book hoping to find a recipe for banana cake. The cakes are beautiful and perfect for those starting to decorate for the first time.

I have all the books written by Liv and Kaye Hansen and this one is just as great. All the cakes are fun and cheerful. They are very talented and make it look so easy. I would buy this book for anyone you know that likes to bake and be creative.
