About the Author

Kerry Vincent is one of the stars of the cake decorating world. Her timeless book, the best-selling "Romantic Wedding Cakes" is considered a classic in its niche. Kerry was co-founder of the nonprofit Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show and served for several years as the International Publicity Director for the annual ICES show (the main cake decorating exhibition in the US). Kerry was instrumental in the creation of The Grand National Wedding Cake Competition, founded in 1996, and its subsequent collaboration with Food Network TV where the event is aired in the United States and 150 nations worldwide. In 2004, Kerry was inducted into the International Cake and Sugarcraft Hall of Fame in Washington, DC. She was nominated and elected by her peers from 27 countries around the world for her service to the community at large and for the invention of two sugar-craft techniques. Since 2003, Kerry has adjudicated 154 reality television competitions that have aired around the world, including 'Last Cake Standing.' Kerry was selected as one of two judges for the 'Great Australia Bake Off'.

When I received this book, I was a little disappointed, because all the cakes were too ornate for my taste. An excellent book for recipes and the creation of intricate details, but not for the bride who is looking for a modern, contemporary cake.

The following was circulated to more than 20 national newspapers in the United States & Canada.
The cakes in "Romantic Wedding Cakes" by Kerry Vincent are ambitious and intimidating — if you’re not a sugar artist, as she is. Chalk this one up to inspiration, perhaps.
The designs, for guests’, grooms’ and engagement cakes besides wedding cakes, are indeed elaborately romantic, decked with flowers, bows and frills. Each is accompanied by a professional list of needs: for the cake, for decorating materials, and loads of equipment (cutters, molds, skewers and other tools).
The photographs include detailed close-ups and how-to shots as well as full-view pictures of stately cakes, often evoking crowns and palatial architecture with enough splendor for a royal occasion.
Australian born, Vincent now lives in Oklahoma, and is the co-founder of the annual Oklahoma State Sugar Art Show.

The book I received has a totally different cover but I presume it has the same content as the title is the same.

I was overwhelmed with the beauty of the cakes in this book but I am a bit old fashioned. For anyone that likes topsy turvy and ultra modern, it isn't for you.

I have already made the acanthus leaf cake 'although a smaller version and different colouring' for my granddaughters 21st birthday.

I am a rank amateur only starting this craft at the age of 70, which perhaps helps as the designs in here are not easy, they take a lot of time and patience, (of which I have plenty).

For anyone who is a bit more advanced in cake decorating, I would say that this book is essential. Even for those who feel the designs are beyond them, it is worth owning just to drool, because that's what I did and drooling turned into creating.

Over the past number of years I have seen the most exquisite designs in wedding cakes, and many have been created by Kerry Vincent. So, it was with great anticipation that I awaited Kerry's book. I was not disappointed. The creations have her distinct mark of amazing detail and elegance. The guest cake artists she has included have submitted equally incredible designs, living up to their reputations as tops in the field. This book is a "must have" for every cake decorator, of every skill level.
As the owner of a specialty cake business, I am interested in the feasibility reproducing the cake design, as well as it's beauty. There are a many designs in Romantic Wedding Cakes, that my staff is eager to recreate. The clear directions, and the beautiful, as well as, helpful pictures will make the process easier -- even for my beginning decorators. I, also, appreciate the codes used for tools that we may need for a project, and the accompanying resource list of where to purchase them-what a timesaver.
As with each endeavor she undertakes, Kerry has given decorators a high standard to reach for in their own work. Thank you for all the hard work, it is beautiful.
I hope there will be a collection of decorating books from Kerry Vincent.

Dear Publisher, I awaited with great anticipation the arrival of Kerry Vincent's first book and I was not disappointed. In fact, the book was even better than I could have imagined. The designs were stunning and yet spoke of quiet dignity as well. There were so many cakes to spark my own creativity, that I read through the book and reread it again many times before deciding that I would attempt to make the dogwood cake first. As impressed as I was with the designs themselves, the instructions were even more unbelievable. Kerry's explanations were clear, precise and very easy to follow. The numerous photos are of high quality. This one book contained such an abundance of information that it was almost like several books in one. Kerry's book gave me the confidence to try several advanced techniques like pleating and inlay that I had not attempted before. I can't speak highly enough of this book. It is fabulous tool for the professional decorator! Thank you so much for publishing this book. It should be a must read for every decorator!

First I am enjoying "Romantic Wedding Cakes" as a picture book. The cakes are truly beautiful. As a decorator, the unique designs expand my imagination and the clarity and detail of the directions enable me to futher my own creativity. I look forward to using this book as a reference for years to come.
