This collection of over 60 humorous sport cake designs provides fun cakes for everyone and all ages, from a young person's surfing cake, a football fanatic to a game of bowls cake. Each main cake features a quick and easy version with many of the cakes also having a sports variation too. Aimed at the amateur to the professional cake decorator, there are simple cakes for the beginner or when time is at a premium, and cakes for the more experienced or for those with a little more time on their hands - with very little specialist equipment required, most items can be found in the kitchen. Each cake design is laid out in an easy-to-follow format with step-by-step colour photographs and instructions. There is a comprehensive recipe techniques section, including cake and icing recipes, plus advice on covering cakes and boards, and working with sugarpaste.
Carol Deacon began cake decorating by accident when a friend asked her to make a birthday cake. The idea of combining creativity with model making and something that also tasted great really appealed to her. Early designs won her gold medals in competitions and even a car in an icing competition run by a food magazine. Carol left her then job in advertising and worked for a year at Jane Asher's cake shop in Chelsea, London. Carol then went freelance and as well as running a succesful wedding cake business and writing books, Carol has designed and written for many food and cake magazines and has demonstrated her edible artistic skills in the UK, abroad and on TV. Carol has just begun running classes. If you are interested, you can find details on Amazon's Carol Deacon Page under "events".
