I use her book, Sweet Celebrations, as a cake bible. Her recipes are flawless. Her directions are perfect. Her creations are to die for.
When I'm baking from scratch, I always turn to her recipes first, and my Christmas Tree cake is no exception. I have a full batch of her buttercream and cream cheese filling, several layers of spice cake in the freezer and her ribbon design hardening on the back porch.

I love this woman, and yes, I would LOVE to have a pair of glasses like that. I mean really - it's possible she's able to do the intricate stuff she does because she can see microscopic detail through those things!
