A post on the author's website claims that "Frostings" teaches creative ways to style and serve food as well as providing delicious recipes. Indeed, the book contains gorgeous, inspirational photos though it sorely lacks information on how to produce the photographed desserts. ALL it gives readers is frosting recipes, each including a tiny box called "Garnish It!" that contains extremely basic ideas like sprinkling chopped nuts.

The book certainly provides a solid repertoire of frostings, from buttercreams to ganaches to glazes, but it seems awfully unfair to present a photo of a fluffy cupcake piled with hot pink icing and chocolate glaze and then to ONLY give the recipe for the glaze.

Maybe 2.5 stars...
