The price for a new book is $37.80 and old is $31.49 this book is normally $60! What a deal!
I just looked at this book at Barnes & Noble last night! I was so excited to see it, but SO disappointed with the contents. I guess I was expecting new cakes I'd never seen before, but nearly every single cake in the book is already in her magazines! I have most of her wedding mags and already have their pictures! I think there were three that I've never seen before. I was hoping for new, exciting designs! It's still a beautiful book and I would highly recommend it to anyone who doesn't have a stack of her wedding magazines....they're truly unique and beautiful!
I didn't know that most of the cakes had been featured in her magazine. Great heads up Cambo for those who have her magazines and don't have access to a large book store to be able to pre-view the book. I also thumbed through the pages of her book at Barnes and Noble and I had not seen the cakes before and I liked how the recipes and techniques were in the book. I was aware that she had magazines but never sought them out- I guess this was before I became interested in cake decorating. Love your work Cambo- I am a fan!
I sat in B&N and looked through it last night as well! Showed it to my DH and remarked that I would be checking Amazon for it. I don't have the magazines and the book is stunning. As well, there are a lot of recipes and how-to tip for those who don't have the past wedding issues.
I bought the book at B & N w my member 30% off plus an additional 15% off coupon. I got it for about $30.
Its a great collection of Martha's and Wendy Kromer's cakes all in one. Beautiful beautiful cakes.
Did anyone see AMAZON has a 5qt KA on sale today for $150 with free shipping!?!?
