So the next thing is – is it any good?!  Lets ask some of the reviewers..

The Good

Most people said that this kit contains all of the basics that you need to get started, and makes it cheaper than buying each of the items individually.  They also comment on the fact that the caddy is big enough to fit a lot of extras, and this makes it very useful to store and carry all of your must have items.

Another positive that keeps coming up is that the instruction guide is very useful and easy to follow for beginners.

The Not So Good

One cake decorator was very happy with the kit, apart from the pastel colors of the caddy, and the fact that some of the longer/larger Wilton tips don’t fit in the case and allow it to close.

Conclusion

Overall, it seems that an overwhelming majority of people that bought this caddy as a gift or for themselves were more than happy with it.  It would make a PERFECT gift for someone who likes to make cakes, and would like to get started in cake decorating.

Reviews of Contemporary Cake Decorator’s Bible

The “Contemporary Cake Decorator’s Bible: Over 150 Techniques and 80 Stunning Projects” by best-selling author and sugarcrafter Lindy Smith is packed full of modern, fun and exciting ideas to make your cake something special.

Not only does it include loads of ideas to inspire you, it also is a useful resource and reference book for mastering over 150 techniques in cake decorating and baking.  It also includes over 80 projects for you to get started with detailed step-by-step instructions.

Whether you are an experienced cake decorator looking for new ideas, or a complete novice, you will enjoy creating and learning from this beautifully illustrated book.

It also makes a fabulous gift for anyone who loves making and decorating cakes!

The Good

This book is viewed as a favorite by many customers, especially beginners as it contains detailed and clear step-by-step instructions and information about how to use a variety of tools, molds etc.

Some sections of the book that were really appreciated were “Non-Sugarcarft Tools” which shows you how to use everyday household items as tools, the “Color Wheel” sections for help on tinting and coloring icing and the “Cake Carving” section which is a particularly tricky thing to master.

Loads of people say that it is a fantastic book for explaining how to use the tools that most people probably have at home.

The Not So Good

Although claiming to have something for everyone, most people felt that it was more useful for those not so experienced.  People who are already skilled at cake decorating may not find that much to inspire or teach them.
