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'.

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.
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.
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.
