Reader's review: If you would like to see the types of cakes included in this book, as there are no pictures here, I advise you to go to the author's websitein the UK, which can be found easily in the usual way. You will find a link to "books" with photos of each cake included in this book. Debbie is the best known novelty cake designer in the world, whose designs have inspired every professional cake maker, and her wedding cake book also includes mainly novelty designs so it is difficult to recommend the book to anyone without knowing whether you like this type of designs. Here, she is at her usual standard, but to be honest, I don't feel that I would personally want any of these cakes for my wedding but as an inspiration for other celebrations, it is a good book with very varied (all fondant) projects including a pastillage church, bride and groom models, hat shapes, boxes, mice, cars, aircraft, indian Buddha type figure, musical notes, doll cake, etc. With regards to instructions and layout, the book is nicely done and instructions very clear and detailed, and includes cake recipes and comprehensive equipment and ingredient lists. I must say that personally I am not crazy about Debbie's cake recipes, I have tried a few, but it's a question of taste, and no matter what, they are ok and work. As still fairly new to the craft, I like Debbie's designs because they are achievable and stretch you just the right amount to teach you a lot each time you complete one of her cakes. There is also always a good variety of techniques used and those are always transferable to other novelty cakes (e.g. birthday cakes in particular). One important point is that she does use a minimum of equipment rather than dozens of cutters and all sorts of icings. She tends to use fondant, a drop of royal icing here and there, and simple blossom cutters for flowers. I have done a course with Debbie this year (one from this book) and she is a nice lady with much talent and no ego and this is reflected in her books. We all managed a good result (see above)and I felt I learned so much in just one day.
