Présentation de l'éditeur

When the world-famous shoe designer Manolo Blahnik walked into his surprise birthday party and saw the cake that was waiting for him - a Manolo stiletto perched alluringly next to a tissue-filled shoebox - it was his turn to ogle someone else's talent. The cake, created by Elisa Strauss of Confetti Cakes in New York City, was a sensation.
This unique book contains projects for every skill level, from gorgeous, sugar-dusted heart cookies to delightful billiard-ball cupcakes, to sculpted cakes in the shape of wine bottles and Chinese takeout boxes, to the extravagantly beautiful, three-tiered embroidery cake showcased on Sex and the City.
With delicious recipes, stunning projects for every occasion, suggestions for time-saving shortcuts, and hot tips for fabulous results, all illustrated with gorgeous photographs and easy-to-follow diagrams, Confetti Cakes is a must-have for the outrageously chic baker in all of us.

The cake decorating pedestal has another person to hold..... 15 mai 2007
Par Toni - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
What a lovely book of cake decorating education!! Well done Elisa!! Ms. Strauss is the owner of New York City's "Confetti Cakes". Though she worked in the fashion industry, a playful idea of mixing her love for baking with her eye for fashion brought her to this career, and it seems to suit her well. From her bakery comes this addicting book!!

Having been mesmorized by the feats and skills of such accompished cake decorators, I always look forward with great anticipation, to the latest tomes written on this subject. Ms. Strauss does not disappoint. She has compiled a rather delightful writing of the mastery of cake design and teaches a wide range of baking skills. The cake decorating devotee is given all the information necessary to reproduce what you seen on each wonderful page. This book has the ability for anyone, from novice to professional, to use and create and ooooh and aaaaah!

The instructions run from basic cookies in shapes from onesies outfits (that's the baby's first year everyday garment of basically longjohns) to purses, and cupcakes with beribboned polka-dots to beach sandals to the main event of spectacular cakes that would fool anyone due to their unique appearances, like popcorn bags to a sushi table, replete with "rice" and "California rolls".

The book is sturdy and thick with beautiful and detailed photography of each creation so that any questions can be answered with just a glance of the eye. Her explanations are clear and concise and they are given to you in steps both for the actions required as well as the timetable needed in order to plan your time wisely.

Her book is written in this order:


This photographic and written section has what you need to work with as far as equipment and decorating tools, and each piece is numbered with a matching explanation of how you use it. There is a glossary, baking terms, practical matters, how to transport your creations, techniques for the actual decorating, filling cakes, sculpting cakes, covering cakes with fondant, constructing the cakes to hold their weight, piping with frosting and royal icing, brush embroidery, "wood staining" for making candied "tables" and "crates", making sugar bows, and more.

I would highly recommend this for anyone who enjoys this type of culinary conquest; no doubt about it, you'll be happy with this acquisition to your baking library!

Disappointed this book is effective in terms of matketing, poor in terms of cooking and learning 4 février 2009
Par J. Pruneda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I was very excited about this book before it arrived, I even purchased the other book from this author specializing in kids cakes; I have to say that once I was able to finally read it I was deeply disappointed, the recipes presented are scarce and not accurate, the instructions and step by step guides inexistent, or at least ineffective for novices in cake decoration (I have studied 4 different Chef courses and still find it difficult to follow).
Photographs of finished cakes are quite impressive, but basically there are no photographs for the whole construction and decorating process (which was what I was looking for).
From my personal opinion this book is a wonderful example of what can be accomplished with great marketing strategy, but not necessarily provides anything in terms of learning.

Unbelievable - you have to see these to believe these @}->--- 2 mai 2007
Par Little Miss Cutey - Publié sur Amazon.com

Finally, the book we've all been waiting for is out. I've seen Elisa interviewed and do demonstrations and seen her work, and now some secrets are out and helpful hints and stunning pictures are all in this great book.

For some people, I imagine you'd want to dive right in and begin/attempt to recreate some of the fabulous cakes in here (I personally don't think I even have half the skill to try), but whether you want to try and make them or just admire her fantastic work, this book is spectacular.

For each recipe, there is a complete list of what you need (materials, equipment, and techniques etc). To me, I like simple, and this isn't. It can be mind boggling if you aren't practiced in baking, but I can't stress enough how beautiful this book is, and it would make the perfect gift on Mothers day or for a birthday for anyone who loves baking, or just amazing and stunning looking cakes. I love this.

FABULOUS PURCHASE !!! 25 mai 2007
Par mayas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I LOVE this book!!! Some of the cakes pictured in it are incredible to look at but a stretch for my limited artistic abilities....but most are totally doable, especially with the very specific instructions provided. Details like when to use what kind of icing, when to use a dowel to support the cake structure, what to transport the cake in, etc, are really helpful. So is the section on "techniques", which gives the foundations of decorating, before the book launches into the specific design ideas. A great mix of different kinds of cakes, cookies, mini cakes, etc, also. So far I've made two of the cake receipies and the cookies a few times: and people loved the flavors and textures too.

Very Cute Book 16 juin 2007
Par K. Summers - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I have just begun taking cake decorating classes and thought to buy a couple of books to expand what I have learned in class. Although I am not a big fan of how fondant tastes I can't wait to try some of the cakes in this book. I like the fact that there are templates and recipies in the book and not just pictures.

Note: The Sugar cookie recipie on pg 53 on the flour amount, change the 4...cups as written to 2 1/4...cups. (It says it on her website also)
