HASH(0xa08b066c) out of 5 stars Lots of Fondant! Oct. 31 2009
By AJY - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book with one picture and recipe just about every 2 pages. The photography and cookies are stunning. However, the authors rely heavily on the use of fondant for decorating which I found disappointing. I also purchased the Cookie Craft Christmas and prefer that book which focuses on various piped icing techniques.

HASH(0xa08b08b8) out of 5 stars DISAPPOINTED!!! Only Fondant NO OTHER decorating method!! Aug. 15 2011
By Karen B - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was extremely disappointed with this book. Had I known that it was only about using fondant to decorate cookies, I would NEVER have purchased it!!! Eventhough there are beautiful photos, there is not enough content. The method is the same for all the cookies. The fondant might be dyed a different color or various colors/designs and it's applied to the cookie. There is very very little decorating with a pasty bag and icing. I was also disappointed that there was not a list of resources for purchasing supplies. The author ONLY mentions her own retail web site!!

HASH(0xa08b0af8) out of 5 stars Fondant Doesn't Taste Good Dec 6 2009
By M. Hill - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love cookie cookbooks and own dozens of them. The cookbooks that focus on decorating are a small but very special group. When done correctly, the imagination and design skill involved in creating jaw-dropping treats adds greatly to the cookie making and eating experience. That said, I am glad I looked at this book in person before buying it.

The subject here is creating mini works of art -- the cookie recipe aspect is kept to a minimum because they are only here to serve as a foundation for the fondant ornamentation. There are exactly four cookie recipes in this book - Cookie Dough, Gingerbread Cookie Dough, Chocolate Cookie Dough and Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Dough. They are located in the back of the book.

Included is a beautiful full color photograph of each cookie creation and detailed directions for decorating it on the page opposite the illustration. Obviously, the "how to decorate" part of the book takes center stage. I have no problem with the book emphasizing the art of decorating cookies rather than baking them, but fondant simply isn't tasty so, unlike other recent books that create both visually amazing cookies that are also delicious, this is all for show rather than consumption. As lovely as these cookies are, the effort to make them just seems wasteful and rather pointless. The expression "it is too pretty to eat" comes to mind.

A good book but sometimes it is difficult to get the necessary items to do some of the nicer cookies.
