The minute I opened this book, I felt a great affinity for Margaret Braun. It is like we have the same kind of brain, our relationship with the cakes we create is artistic, personal; it is amazing that we sometimes get paid for what we love to do!
I haven?t tried the recipes, and possibly never will; they are doubtlessly quite good. It just that this book isn?t about a to-do list, rather it is about imagination, passion, energy, art; a study of one person?s focus, concentration, and inspiration. We follow along as she envisions her creations, and then manifests them, merging art and pastry to create wonderful presentations, divine cakes, beautiful statements?
Ok, I admit it is total food porn; the photographs are achingly beautiful, and the book is a symphony of design and character. Still, when I study it clear-eyed, her techniques are really cool, and practical, and inspirational, with great insight. For any aspiring cake designer, this is a marvelous book by a superb talent, fueled by a great love for her work. Recommended completely.
