Review:


As you can see from the samples above, and below, you get some pretty AMAZING photos that take you step by step along the way to make 18 sugar flowers that will not only WOW your family and friends, but increase your confidence that you CAN make some pretty amazing cakes too! The instructions are very straightforward, as you can see, and the intro section goes over tools and tricks of the trade, as well as simple recipes you need tor the flowers. Due to our extreme heat wave, I wasn't about to try to make any of the flowers, but having made fondant flowers with similar techniques, I believe the one sin this book are truly attainable, as long as you have the right recipe, tools and directions, which 2 are in the book for you! Who knows, this book might just inspire you, or the teens, to start a new family business, that future generations will look back on and say "WOW it started with a book?"! We can't recommend it enough for some Summer fun!
