I love the pictorial!  It's very clear, good quality images and detailed instructions. I wanted to learn how to do the terrazzo technique although I also thought the price was excellent.  Lots of techniques covered including basic skills such as covering a cake with fondant for those who are more beginners.

I also was pleasantly surprised to find that other techniques were covered eg the velvet spray and using textured fondant.  I already use the latter technique but not the spray.
