Excellent book that gives very helpful suggestions on how to plan, design and decorate your cookies. I'm new to cookie decorating but this book has given me ideas for countless cookie projects. Beautifully decorated cookies throughout inspire me and the clearly written instructions give me confidence. I CAN do it! And you can too!

I was so excited to get this book to help me with certain aspects of my cookie designs. While the book is full of helpful tips, I was very disappointed with the pictures. They looked really sloppy & that was shocking to me, especially coming from 2 very talented women. It really looked like they just threw the cookies together for the book. I believe that when you do something, no matter what it is, you take your time and take pride in your work.
This book showed what cutters to use for the specific cookies and quick write ups on basic decorating. I really had higher hopes for this book. This book is not written for beginners or intermediate. There are a lot of things in this book, that if you didn't know what the supplies that were being used already were, you would be lost! Thankfully I know my cookie tools!

I did buy this book used and it was in PERFECT condition!!! I am 100% happy and satisfied with the Seller, just not with the book itself.

I was so excited when I ordered this book in hopes of it giving me ideas for new cookie designs. One of the cookie artists I follow online had recommended it in her blog and thought for sure this was something for more creative projects. When I received it however, I was very disappointed with the content. The pictures looked really sloppy & all of the cookies were very basic. I've been decorating cookies for about a year and consider myself to be a bit of a novice, but there wasn't much to take from the designs. The content about which tools to use was pretty decent, so I would only recommend this for a cookier who knows next to nothing about decorating cookies. Otherwise, you're better off finding inspiration from Pinterest or other bakers' blogs.

This is a fine book for a novice or elementary level home baker. It is not for the serious home baker or for anyone at a professional level. I purchased this book based on the rave reviews. However, I found nothing that I hadn't already known or made many times. I had hoped for inspired decorative designs or methods and techniques, but found nothing new. In fact, I just returned the book.

This book might be useful for a less experienced or less knowledgeable baker, but don't expect professional or production techniques. It does contain practical information and advice that could help a novice avoid mistakes.

I found the designs to be quite conservative and traditional - nothing very original or striking. However, that's just my reaction. Quiet and traditional might be your cup of tea.

Let me start off by saying the information in this book is great. I might even go as far as saying I refer to this information almost every time I make cookies, which is often. Now let me explain why I only gave three stars. Years ago I bought another book by the same authors and loved it. So when I same this book I thought it was more great information to add to the wonderful info from the first book. Unfortunately, it is literally the same info page for page after the cover. The thought never occurred to me to check publishing info, and there was no peek inside at a page or two. I have included a pic of the first book so you can draw your own conclusions, but I can't help but feel tricked

I am a cook, with a culinary degree and I am not a fan of baking. I am a horrible decorator. I can usually make things taste good, but not look good. With this book my first attempt came out pretty good, and I criticize myself harshly. It might seem like a lot of details and steps (it is), but if you read everything and follow every step it will come out really really good. Cookie slats, squeeze bottles, parchment paper, written out game plan,and doodling ideas, all worth having/doing. I made soccer balls, and that is not even in the book! Once I started to try and look at things like they do I realized "I have the power, I can make the rules". I made soccer balls with black sanding sugar. Even with all the work, it was fun, seriously. Awesome!

I am a pretty decent cook but NOT a baker -- I have never used a piping bag before nor have I ever made icing. Under a fit of curiousity and inspiration, I bought this book a few weeks ago and LOVE it! After reading the book and purchasing some suggested supplies, I did one test run of cookies and then a few days later made leaf and pumpkin cookies for my daughter's entire class. They loved them and they looked fabulous. The authors make cookie making and decorating as simple or complex as you would like for it to be. My designs looked a lot more complex than they were, thanks to the authors of this book who made it easy to get started. Couldn't recommend a better book for beginners, and the more complex designs (like a standing cookie sled centerpiece!) will challenge and inspire those who have been decorating for years. Since I'm a visual learner, the only negative is that I would have liked for the authors to provide a picture depecting the consistency of flood and piping icing, instead of a written description. However, I easily found pics online that answered my question.

Edit: I'm adding this comment one year later after purchasing this book. I've been decorating cookies this whole while and this book has become my cookie bible. The sugar cookie and chocolate/cocoa dough recipe in this book are the only two cookie recipes that I use. The chocolate sugar cookies taste almost like brownies. Yum! And the royal icing recipes work like a charm. I love how they give all the different recipes for icing depending upon if you use liquid eggs, powder egg whites, etc. I still find massive inspiration within these pages. I've bought several cookie books since this one, and though great for ideas, this is the only one that is my go-to for every cookie I make.
