"Another great Debbie Brown book"

Love the book it has some great ideas for both boys and girls from babies to tweens. Aliens, monsters, teddies, puppies, a shark, eye ball cake, princesses and fairies, glass slipper on a pillow and much more. Well worth the purchase.

5 stars "This is an awesome book"

This book is so good my sister got me to order her one as well. I have already made the pirate skull cake for my nephew. He loved it. The pictures and instructions are easy to follow. The grandchildren have already chosen their birthday cakes. Might Ape is very prompt and it is great you know exactly what is in stock and when purchases are sent.

If you think its to hard to decorate a beautiful cake by yourself this is the book to get.
It shows you just how easy it is. Great instructions and wonderfull pictures. My wife loves it.

5 stars "Amazing!!"

Not only do I love this book and can't wait to make all the fantastic looking cakes in it, my nieces and nephews can't pick which one they want for their next birthday. At this rate I'll be making three cakes for each of them.
