In her forward, Maida Heatter says, “This is a grand, encyclopedic collection of cakes and everything related to them–crystallized flowers, fondant, thirty-eight different buttercreams, white or dark chocolate roses, lifelike bees made of marzipan, spun sugar, chocolate ribbons, caramel cages, chocolate writing, 22K gold-leaf letters and decorations, enough piped flowers to fill a florist’s shop, and still more. It was difficult not to spend all my time making one after another of these cakes.”
