Decorating Cakes: A Reference & Idea Book is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 50.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this book! It never gets old. I look through it often. I have taken all four decorating classes at Michael's in Columbia, SC Ms. Tara Robinson is my instructor and what a informational and wonderful instructor she is. We had a family class with my daughter, mother, sisters and nieces. Along with this book I can turn to her for anything I might need. I have used several recipes and also used a lot of ideas in this book to make a particular cake I am decorating unique using several of the ideas they have listed...Love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from when I was enriching my knowledge of cake baking I used this book. It is one of the best learning tools that I have had in my hands. It is very direct and hands on and easy to use. It helped me to learn to make better roses and other flowers. It is one of my favorite references, that I have in my baking arsenal. Wouldn't take for it and I highly recommend it to anyone who is learning or even for someone who is an expert!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from five stars I took classes at Micheal's Craft Store, Myrtle Beach SC, the instructor Maureen Lippert was great, very patient. So now I have a storeroom full of Wilton baking products. Made three cakes last week, love working with fondant, and the smiles I get when they see the cake. I'm making a retirement cake for the church tonight. Thank you Wilton. Keep up the good work! Dianne

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This book is a must-have reference for any serious baker-in-training. It has recipes, step-by-step guides for decorating, and handy charts. I may have to buy another one soon since my copy is getting worn out. It will inspire, educate, and encourage you. I bought this after completing the Wilton courses. Using it is like taking a refresher course!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Decorating tips Leaf, 102, 104, star, 199, 1M, 21 I bought several tips to make a birthday cake and a baptism cake. It was my first venture into this. I saw a photo of a cake filled with succulents and thought I'd give it a try-with some variations. The other cake I saw was cake decorated like shirt. I was happy with both results. What do you think?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This is an excellent reference guide/instruction manual. It is easy to follow and the information is precise and unambiguous. The beautiful pictures, while appealing to the eyes, are also a source of inspiration. They provide a benchmark for the user/decorator to aspire toward. Thanks Wilton.
