Confetti Cakes for kids book review

Confetti Cakes for kids

Confetti Cakes for kids is the second book from New Yorks famous cake decorator Elisa Strauss.

The book is really lovely to look at with its bright and colourful photos through out the book. The book contents is: Cake basic, Techniques, Basic recipes, Cookies, Cupcakes, Mini cakes & Cakes. Especially the technique parts gives you really valuable information so dont skip this part when you read the book. You will also find templates for some of the projects in the book and “new” recipes like gingerbread cake, amazing chocolate brownies and brown sugar buttercream along with the basic recipes from the first book Confetti Cakes.

You will find many sweet cookie ideas like Farm Animal Cookies and Pajama Cookies . Learn how to transform cupcakes into bright Beach Pail Cupcakes just perfect for a beach party or celebrate the birthday party with Slice of Cake Brownie Mini Cakes or you can make a MP3 mini cake for your teen boy or girl.

From mini cakes the book will show you how to make fantastic cakes that will thrill every child and even grown up’s aswell. You will learn how to make the cute Monster Cake from the front page. Elisa have also included another style of her signature design’s the Gift Box Cake with a loopy bow on top. A cheerful Toy Train Cake that would be loved by my son at any time and the old-fashioned Sock Monkey Cake to just name a few of the cake designs shown in the book.

One thing that I think is missing in the book is pictures in the guides on how to make the different cakes. This I think can make it harder to understand at some point how you make the decoration on the cake.

All things taken in to consideration Elisa Strauss has once again created a really good book and I can with no hesitation recomend for you all to get a copy.
