Alan Dunn's anticipated ninth book, Celebration Cakes, is an incredibly practical and comprehensive guide to the enticing world of sugarcraft. The book's straightforward layout is paired with step-by-step flower tutorials that are oh so easy to follow. To compliment Dunn's accessible floral creations, the book is filled with high quality photos that are as instructional as they are elegant. Dunn's book stands apart because of the way he has consolidated a wide variety of diverse flower tutorials. We tried out the "Purple chili peppers" tutorial on page 58, and found the material and equipment lists (as well as Dunn's instructions) to be clear and manageable. It seems that Dunn has truly thought of everything. For example, if you aren't sure where to buy a specific product listed in the book, he has thoughtfully provided a list of suppliers in the back for easy reference. Yet another bonus is the inclusion of a photo gallery of flower bouquets. In these photos, Dunn has cleverly taken individual pieces from the flower tutorials in the book and placed them into larger arrangements for inspiration. We think Celebration Cakes is definitely worth celebrating, and if you love Dunn's other books you will not be disappointed.
