More About the Author

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".

Format: Paperback
A wonderful book for a complete novice in cake decorating! Lots of brilliant ideas which look really impressive but are amazingly easy to make and without a piping bag in sight. I keep coming back to it and you really can make a cake that looks like the one in the picture. After the last one I was even told I should go into business........and I promise anyone reading this that I am not a confident cook. Thankyou Carol for dispelling the fear and for all the compliments which I would never have received without your instructions.

This is a really good book, even for beginners. There's something for everyone in here. Birthday cakes for men who like football/golf/fishing/DIY/snoozing on the sofa etc. Birthday cakes for women who like makeup, chocolate (the chocolate box on the front cover), and loads more. Many cakes for children with underwater themes, animal and jungle themes, princess castles, teddy bears etc. There's christening, christmas and valentines cakes and even a get well soon cake.

All of the instructions are easy to follow with step by step pictures on how to make the little figurines. There's a useful guide about the different types of icing you can get and which type is best for particular things, and how to get certain effects such as woodgrain and ocean waves.

Most importantly, the basic sponge cake recipe the book suggests (with a butter icing and raspberry jam filling,) is the best I have ever used, I made it for my son's birthday and I will never look back! Everybody loved it...that alone is worth 5 stars!

I bought this book for ideas, and based on other reviews. I have not been disappointed. Well balanced, no special tools needed. A real bargain

Format: Paperback
This is my favourite of Carol Deacon's books. While most of the designs lean towards children there are also some lovely ideas for other occasions. My particular favourite is the burger cake, which went down very well with my 14 year old step-son. This book doesn't require you to buy any special tools as most other books on the subject do and the techniques used are mostly pretty straightforward. There is a good mix of very simple cakes and more elaborate ones so you can start at a level you feel comfortable with. With a little patience you can get some incredible results that really do look like the ones in the book!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book containing many different designs - ranging from easy to difficult, but all with extremely good finished products. The ideas are stunning and there is step-by-step instruction for all parts of the production - the basic designs being easy to adapt for a specific occasion, I've already made 3 cakes from this book and I only bought it a fortnight ago! Excellent.

As soon as I got this book I simply had to read/look through it. So many hints and tips, and my hubby even practised the Santas with plasticine and made a pretty good job, so we knew that this would be ok, especially as he can get involved too (when he's not at work)!!! It is well worth every penny, with beautiful colour photos of the cakes and helpful weights etc.
