Don't get me wrong, many of the pops are gorgeous and I will definitely be using some of the techniques, even the ones using fondant, but it is unlikely a beginner will be able to make these pops the first time. Instead, buy Bakerella's book, which isn't perfect, but is better for beginners and has photos of the decorating elements, makes different shaped pops, talks about candy temperature and cake pop temperature. It will at least give beginners a fighting change to make a recognizable pop the first time.
Buy this book for ideas, after you buy Bakerella's book and view her website to learn to make cake pops.
A caveat for the buyer of this book (like every book on cake or cookie decorating I've seen) is that without additional pans, ingredients, and/or tools, you're stuck. I purchased three Wilton Round Brownie Pop Molds, and a bag of Wilton Dark Candy Cocoa Melts in order to make the "Fun-filled Pops." (pg 49) The directions underestimated the number of brownies produced, and overestimated the amount of chocolate to melt for the frosting. I particularly would have liked a hint on how to get no-stick baking spray into the mold without making a mess. Still, see my customer image for my first try.
Overall, a good source of ideas for decorative brownie treats, but some frosting experience, particularly using different decorating tips,will be required to make the results look "pretty."
