Tempting, original and versatile, these 15 new cake decoration projects incorporate a range of skills and can be adapted for a wide variety of celebrations.
Although ready-made celebration cakes are readily available from the supermarkets these days, they do all tend to be much of a muchness. They also belie the ease with which they are made. This colourful book from David and Charles highlights the work of three celebrated cake designers - Stephen Benison, Lindy Smith and Linda Wilson-Barker - and teaches you how to make them yourself. Some admittedly require a degree of experience and confidence but many are far simpler than at first appears, needing only an artistic eye and a little patience. Footballers and motorcycles, frothy anniversary and engagement cakes, children's dreams come true, - pretty AND edible - all feature, clearly explained in step-by-step instructions accompanied by colour photographs to emphasise the steps. Basic cake mixtures and icings, techniques and equipment precede the actual designs ensuring a basic understanding before you start. So treat your loved ones to something really special with these delightful ideas and make that day even more memorable for all.
