Book Description

25 April 2008
Of all the decisions that go into planning a wedding, choosing the cake may be the sweetest. Much more than dessert, this beloved wedding symbol should be as special as the bride and groom themselves. Whether you imagine a majestic cake blooming with fresh flowers, a pristine fondant-covered masterpiece, or a homespun take on strawberry shortcake- or even if you don’t know where to begin- Martha Stewart’s Wedding Cakes will provide you with more than 100 delicious and inspiring ideas for timeless and beautiful confections that are perfect for every style of wedding.

Not just visually inspiring, these pages are filled with information you won’t find anywhere else. Martha Stewart and Wendy Kromer, the master baker and decorator who has been creating cakes for Martha Stewart Weddings for more than a decade, guide you through everything you need to consider when selecting a cake- and even how to bake and decorate one yourself. Novice and experienced bakers alike will find recipes and insiders’ techniques to create truly memorable wedding cakes.

You will learn:
Where to begin- how to decide what style and flavors are right for you, taking into account the season, location, and theme of the event

Buttercream or fondant? Ganache or meringue? Useful charts explain the delicious materials bakers use, so you can choose the ones that suit your taste and style

Creative ways to display your cake so it takes center stage at the reception

How to find and hire a baker, including questions to ask and contract considerations

I enjoyed this book as a I design cakes myself so appreciate it from that
angle. Plenty of different ideas, but you must take into consideration these are american style cakes and their approach to design is very different to that here in the U.K. Cakes are constructed in a very different manner - often on site! Great as design source for established cake decorators looking for extra inspiration and who have the ability to adapt the ideas to take into account materials available here. Certainly not a "How to" book for the novice cake decorator looking to make their own wedding cake. More a "browsing" coffee table book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Practically perfect. 10 Jan 2011
I adore this book. It is full of beautiful photos of stunning cakes. The book starts out with a chapter that details the planning necessary to decide on the cake and it's components. Then an album of over 110 cakes, all visually stunning, utterly edible yet too beautiful to cut at the same time. The final section is the 'how to ' section. My one gripe is that the individual pictures of the cakes are not accompanied by details as to how to recreate them at home. While this is not a book for the novice baker it is a source of inspiration for any one who loves cake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous... 24 July 2008
By E. Ward
Cor blimey! This is one seriously sexy book... I agree it's more a reference book for inspiration rather than a recipe book, (although it does have several recipes and icing techniques included!) but even so it is absolutely beautiful. Seriously stunning photos of lots of incredible cakes, and worth the slightly high price. Perfect as a reference tool for experienced bakers, or as a source of inspiration for prospective brides/grooms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Cake Designs! 13 April 2011
I'm a Professional Cake Decorator and bought this book as a Design Source, this is 1 seriously Big book, it has Beautiful clear pictures of the cakes made up and at the back of the book there are handy hints and even a few recipes, they are in American Cups, but thats not a problem to convert. I would recommend this book purely as a Design Source for people who want inspiration, most of the cakes are in the American Style which is a little different to how we Brits do things but there are ways to tweak the designs to suit yourself and you cant deny that each and every 1 of them is mouthwateringly gorgeous! Safe to say I love this book

5.0 out of 5 stars A Wonderful & Inspiring Book for Browsing 10 May 2011
By Mrs A
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a really fabulous book. It isn't a step by step guide like some, but is full of beautiful cakes, flawlessly executed with plenty of great tips, techniques and recipes. Despite being an American book, the styles are very compatible with British tastes.

A great book for inspiration. Not for learners though. I love this book though with great photos of wedding cakes and some detailed instruction on some of the cakes.
