American Cake Decorating subscription

By goldie

from illinois

I must need cake decorating for idiots because the stuff in this book was worthless to me. The first sample of this magazine i received had a outline picture of the beach and sunset and I was able to trace, airbrush, and use the instructions on how to color the horizon, but since that first sample free book there has not been one thing i have been able to use. Cake decorating is so time consuming I wish there was a magazine that just showed easier designs, layouts, and outlines.

Extremely poor customer service and delayed delivery

By cindy

from usa

I placed an order for my first subscription in october of 2009, the first issue arrived @ 6 months later in 2010. I sent a few emails to customer service, trying to find out when my magazine would arrive, I received a rude response giving me excuse why it's taken over 6 months to receive my first magazine.I never recieved a single issue on time, most were at least 2 months late... which is the main reason I would not advise getting this magazine.

By cake princess

my husband subscribed for me dec 2009, I e-mailed every so often to see when i'd get my first issue, i got one around july, that's the last I heard from them... for now, I wouldn't take the chance with subscribing.

Don't bother

By The Baker

from U.S.

I'm floored by the glowing reviews below of American Cake Decorating. I have yet to see an issue with any substance.

I've Been Disappointed with Every Issue

By Party Planning Queen

from Seattle, WA

I have had my subscription to American Cake Decorating magazine for a year now and will be canceling. The cakes in this magazine are for professional decorators or for those competing in competitions. There is nothing to help teach or advance my knowledge and I am pretty talented! It is also VERY heavy in advertising!

Best Bang for the Buck

By NYC Cake Decorators Member

from NYC

I just received my first issue of ACD today, and my only thought was why did I wait so long to subscribe? Excellent how-tos, expansive information on sugarcraft events nationwide, and I also like the fact that it lists suppliers, books, and videos---one stop indugence for my passion for cake decorating.

Great Techniques

By NewbieCakes

from Undisclosed

I am a novice cake decorator, and I find ACD very helpful in terms of techniques. The step-by-step instructions are clearly written and little suggestions are included that help me work out each step. I would love to someday make a cake as beautiful as Rebecca Sutterby, but in the meantime, I am steadily learining new ways to make ribbons, flowers, and sugar people. It is also really nice to get new ideas and see what is going on in the cake world with different cake shows. It did take me a long time to get my first issue, but it was defintely worth the wait!

ACD - a "must- read" for decorators

By cakediva

from Jacksonville, Florida

I simply love this magazine. I've been decorating cakes for only a few years, but everytime I get my ACD magazine, I learn something new. I like to see what the professionals are doing and because the directions are so precise, I find I can make the cakes that are shown. You don't have to be a pro to enjoy this magazine, but if you read it enough you might become one!
