    Some of the other highlights of this book include the handful of recipes on making cookies, icing, egg wash glaze, fondant, and candy clay. As well as sections on color, using plastic candy molds for cookies, silicone molds, wood cookie molds, piping fine details, and using edible markers.

    This book is the “Bible” for Cookie Decorating!! It is very well organized, flows smoothly and easy to follow. The photos of the step by step instruction of the decorating techniques are OUTSTANDING, extremely helpful and an excellent “guide” to refer back to as needed. This will be your “go to reference book” for Cookie decorating!!! You will not be disappointed with this purchase!!!! I would give it 10 stars if I could!!!

    I purchased this book shortly after it was released. I’ve been making cookies decorated with royal icing for about 1 1/2 years. This book surpassed my expectations for information. The ideas are endless but all possible because of the great instructions and numerous photos. Strongly recommend this to a beginner or advanced cookie baker. Order it, sit back with a cup of tea and a cookie and enjoy the wealth of information!
