In this beautifully presented book 12 of the world’s leading cake designers come together to reveal their tried-and-tested recipes and cake decorating techniques.
The book opens with a comprehensive guide to the foundations of cake decorating, from baking and layering to making sugar flowers and models. The recipes that follow include a basic butter cake and fruit cake that you’ll be using for years, as well as some more adventurous options, including an ambitious Banana and Brownie Pâtisserie Cake. Alongside the method for each of the recipes you’ll find a table of ingredient quantities and baking times for a range of cake sizes and shapes so you don’t need to spend time scaling recipes up and down when making multiple tiers.
The 25 cake tutorials are elegant and varied, covering a wide variety of sugarcraft skills including piping with royal icing, airbrushing and sugar flower making. Each project has clear instructions and detailed step-by-step photography to make sure you achieve professional, polished results every time. Although the cakes are all tiered, many of the designs will also work as a single tier with a few small tweaks so they’re suitable for all sorts of celebrations.
It’s the shared knowledge of 12 talented authors which really sets this book apart and makes Designer Cake Decorating a must-have for your bookshelf.
