Que de tentations ! Tous ces cookies sont magnifiques. Le livre n'explique pas comment les réaliser individuellement, mais donne des indications générales pour la décoration de biscuit. En effet, l'auteur encourage à la création personnelle. Il y a des recettes de base, et la description du bon matériel et des ingrédients à privilégier. Pour l'inspiration, beaucoup de photos de réalisations. A vos fourneaux !
Un coup de coeur pour ces splendeurs. Me reste plus qu'à ...

Tout y est..de l'organisation du plan de travail, aux outils nécessaires en passant les techniques de décoration ou bien encore d'emballage si l'on veut envoyer ses "cadeaux sucrés".
Un mine d'information et d'astuces que je conseille vivement.

Worth every penny! 29 décembre 2007
Par Toni - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
What a gem of a cookie decorating book! Many books have been written on this subject; some OK and others are great---add this to the "great" list! Bakers and writers Valerie Peterson and Janice Fryer have turned out quite the encyclopedia of cookie design and here's why.....

Visually, the photography is sharp, clear, and very detailed; this is necessary in any instructional book that needs to show you how it's product is to turn out. And instead of one page and one cookie, the cookies are grouped into a category and photographed all together on that page. Each cookie stands out alone, but as a finished photo, each category of cookies is lovely.

On the opposite page of each grouping of cookies, they have made a outlined, numbered chart that describes how each cookie was decorated, step-by-step, so that you can't make a mistake. How much more could a cookie baker ask for other than having Valerie and Janice make them for you?

Peppered throughout the book are sidebars and hints on all the little things that you can do to make your cookies just that much more perfect, along with all the trials and errors they've had over their years of baking, to help you avoid the same problems.

Then, to make your cookie experience even easier, they made cookie templates that you can zerox and enlarge in order to make the shapes and designs you see in the book. This is a wonderful part of their book, but for myself, I don't have the time and patience to do that, so in addition, they have listed some sources for cookie cutters. My personal suggestion for a great cookie cutter company would be "Fancy Flours" at "[...]". This company literally has hundreds of the most unusual and adorable cookie cutters, and they have every single one used in this book as well.

As a little sidenote, in Chapter 7, they teach you how to make cookies for construction pieces like houses, sleighs, gift boxes, etc. It is an excellent chapter and is worth the price of the book all by itself. It details what type of dough to use to withstand the weight of the project, how to construct each piece, etc.

The book is sectioned as such:

CHAPTER ONE: COOKIE CRAFT INSPIRATIONS

COOKIE CRAFTS for HOLIDAYS and SEASONS
New Year's
Winter
Valentine's Day
Winter Into Spring
Easter and Spring
Mother's Day

CHAPTER 4: COOKIE RECIPES for CREATING BLANK CANVASES

CHAPTER 8: FREEZING, STORING, WRAPPING, and SHIPPING

CHAPTER 9: COOKIE CRAFT EVENTS
Bakesales, parties, cookie swaps, etc

RESOURCES
Suggested sources for cutter, baking supplies, etc

This is a very sweet book of knowledge, hard work, and creativity; you will be very happy with this as part of your baking library, thanks to Valerie and Janice!

If after this endeavor, you would like to go to the next level of cookie creations, I would highly recommend "Creative Cookies" by Toba Garrett; the dimensions of this art are boundless, and Ms. Garrett will instruct you as she is a Master Cake Designer and Sugarcraft Artist.

Become the cookie decorator you've always dreamed of being! 12 novembre 2007
Par Barbara Alpert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was lucky enough to see the authors demonstrate this book's cookie decorating techniques at a store in Brooklyn on Sunday, and I bought two copies--one for me and one for a friend who always does a holiday cookie swap. I read it the same night, and immediately bid on three lots of cookie cutters on Ebay! I'm hooked, and I can't wait to try all their tips for cookie decorating. One of the smartest makes your cookies come out evenly, which has been a problem in the past. You just use two thin pieces of wood and roll your rolling pin along them to produce a perfectly even dough for cutting. The book is full of resources and fun ideas, but what captured my imagination was all the gorgeous color photographs! I think this is an amazing gift for any baker on your list, and you could make it extra special by topping your package with a fun cookie cutter. This isn't just a holiday book, either--reading it makes you think of all kinds of cookie "occasions". I'm planning to make cookies with my niece over Thanksgiving, and I can't wait!

Gorgeous book full of cool ideas for cookie decorating! 2 novembre 2007
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This is a beautifully bound book full of color pictures of beautifully decorated cookies. It's giving me tons of great ideas for the holidays. There are also a lot of helpful hints--(e.g., how to keep your cookie cutters from rusting, how to roll out the dough to a consistant thickness) as well as detailed instructions for really cool party favors, centerpieces -- all made from cookies. The instructions break it down really simply, so it looks doable too. This is going to be the holiday book of choice for this year!

Great baking and decorating insights 14 juin 2010
Par Practice Daily Gratitude - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
These authors did their homework and put together a great collection of the best tried and true decorating and baking techniques. I'm a huge Martha Stewart and Food Network fan, and I've read or seen my share of commentary on sugar cookie "best practices" that seem to contradict what you've heard in other books and magazines (e.g., stick cookies in the freezer before baking / pop them immediately in the oven; only use Silpats to evenly bake your cookies / Silpats aren't worth the money; cool cookies on the tray to avoid breaking / remove immediately to avoid burning). What this book does differently is that it explains why something works for them and yet also acknowledges that the authors have tried other equipment or methods you may have heard of and tells you why they feel their method is the best. I love the no nonsense and to the point commentary in each section that explains their point of view (e.g., when to use wax paper vs. parchment paper, what are the best types of cooling racks, how can you safely remove intricately-shaped cookies, how long baking prep should take). They've organized their tips into super-helpful tables and checklists, and also provide tips on how to cut down on prep time. I would have liked to give this one 4 1/2 stars. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because I don't think designs and decorating techniques are as strong as the baking tips sections. Some of the designs are gorgeous (e.g., winter, Valentine's) while others seem very basic (1 or 2 colors, basic decoration) or are poorly executed (uneven piping) in the photographs(e.g., New Year's, Christmas). You also have to remember that this book covers decorating essentially one type of cookie --- you're not meant to get a bunch of great recipes or varied ingredients or flavors in this book.

The total genius of Cookie Craft! 2 novembre 2007
Par Rachel Stevens - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I just saw this book in a store yesterday, and had to bring it home with me- wow! It's beautiful, the cookie designs are beyond adorable, and the directions are broken down in such an easy way that anyone can make the beautiful designs. I'm already plotting the various cookies I plan to bake up as holiday gifts. (I think even my impossible-to-impress Mother in Law is going to be bowled over with these designs.) I'd recommend this gorgeous book to bakers of any and all experience levels. And anyone who likes to bake will love to receive this as a gift to add to their collection, too! Happy cookie making.
