My favourite cake decorating book!,
This review is from: Cakes to Inspire and Desire: Over 35 Unique Designs, from Mini-Cakes and Simple Shapes to Beaded Delights and Fabulous Flowers (Paperback)
I bought this book mainly to find out how to make the wonky cake shown on the front cover and have used it countless times since buying it.
It's full of really useful information for those who are unsure how to cover a cake with sugarpaste and some great recipes for cakes. I use the sponge recipe for all my cakes and not only are they great tasting, but are a good consistency for carving and keep REALLY well.
The projects shown in this book are not overly complicated and the instructions are easy to follow with plenty of photos for those who are less experienced. I found it gave me some good techniques to adapt to my own decorated cakes as well as a great book just to leaf through and enjoy the pictures.
If you're looking for some interesting ideas for your cake projects with sound basic information, this book is for you.
