This is a great illustrative book. The pictures are wonderful.


innovative and amusing

by SweettheaCakes on Mar 25, 2009

Colette Peters has been around quite a while, and can be credited for starting the trend towards big, crazy, wildly-colored, wacky-shaped cakes - man they are something to behold! Her innovative and amusing gravity-defying cakes are definite attention-grabbers, and her techniques are quite interesting. I have to say, though, that many of her designs leave me stumped - why would I want a cake that looks like stacked box-spring mattresses? Others are densely designed, packing many ideas and colors onto a single work; I sometimes think she aspires to be the Gaudi of cake. This isn?t criticism - my creative style is different, that?s all, and I am both bemused and amused by her work. Her influence in cake design is considerable, prodding other designers to creative highs and lows. I am fond of this book, both for its imagery and her techniques, and respect Colette?s bold risk-taking and success. Recommended for those interested in the history of cake art, and aspiring cake designers.
