Katy Sue Designs - An Introduction to Cake Decorating 2 Disc DVD

Rated 5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent DVD I have only so far watched the first DVD. I bought this as I am struggling to crumb ooat a cake for a wedding next year. I have never fondant iced cakes before. This DVD is brilliant for tips on everything from baking a cake to icing it. I kept saying to myself "oh that's why that didn't work when I did that!" The techniques used are easy and brilliant. I cannot praise this DVD enough. I hope the 2nd one lives up to the first. First class! 20 August 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by I really loved this I wasn't sure what to expect or whether this was too basic for me. I used to make and decorate cakes for my children's christenings and birthdays. I was a really good amateur. I stopped doing all things cake when I injured my hand almost 20 years ago. I never returned to cake decorating until recently. Having watched and enjoyed almost all of the shows in the cake academy, I've caught the cake decorating bug again!! Whilst this dvd does take you through all the basics, it includes decorating three cakes. I found that some of it was completely new to me and the rest I was happy to watch and be reminded. For me it was worth the money to learn how to use my cake leveler properly! I spent three really enjoyable hours watching this. I learned a lot. Personally, I would have liked to see less on using molds and more on making flowers, but I'm sure others will disagree. I would recommend this to anyone returning to cake decorating like me or those who want to start making their own celebration or birthday cakes. Please can we have a follow up dvd to take my cake decorating to the next level? 14 April 2016
