Oh my Gosh,

I have that book, wish I would have seen this before I bought it. Okay if I can think that, others must be thinking that. Then it must not be legal right??? Hmmm, strange how they can just let it out there like that. I wonder..

Well it's only a few cakes so maybe it is legal!

It's not complete, but it's not what I would consider a 'preview' either! Dodgy legal ground I'd say!

I've just written to Debbie and included the link so she can take legal action.

I was wrong. It's just a few pages.

I saw more than a few pages.... I saw instructions and photos for about 16-17 cakes.

I counted about two dozen pages --that's certainly a no holds barred all inclusive preview. But I've seen other books featured thusly on amazon. It's done. Maybe not so cool but selling books ain't easy.

Selling anything retail ain't easy huh. Not to mention the current financial tsunami. But just with the ease we can re-cycle books nowadays like on ebay or half dot com, amazon too.

Great book huh.

It's actually just a teaser I think.... It does not have all those pages. They deliberately leave pages out of probably each one. Enough to maybe make you want more of the book. Probably just a sales technique.

if you search for more of her books, it says limited preview under several of them. so it might be legit.

It says right on there "...pages are omitted in this book preview"

The do previews like this on TONS of books. It's really nice because you can get the feel of the book before you buy it.

I just spent all weekend previewing all books cake and sugarcraft related. I made notes and lots of them icon_biggrin.gif

Got great tips and recipes and ideas, pan size amounts you name it. Thanks for sharing this link.

It's the authors problem and nobody else's as far as I am concerned. I have just gathered a load of info for nothing icon_biggrin.gif

how come it looks like most of those "cakes" are just rice krispie treats?
