Product description

"Cake decorating is a fabulous mixture of cookery and art, a blend of relaxation and excitement, with a sprinkling of inspiration, precise care and reckless use of the imagination all thrown in for good measure. The Home Guide to Cake Decorating will lead a newcomer through the simplest basics of this wonderful, colourful pastime, but also contains great ideas and fantastic creations to inspire experienced sugar-crafters. If you have never baked before, but want to make a teddy-bear's picnic for your toddler's birthday, or if you are planning a three-tiered traditional cake with sugar roses for a family wedding, or if you would just like to bake a luscious chocolate gateau for tea with friends, this is the book to show you how to do it. The Home Guide to Cake Decorating features both easy-to-follow instructions for beginners, from baking the cake to simple piping, and inspirational ideas for experienced sugar-crafters seeking new challenges. It also includes a brief history of cake decorating and a full glossary of the terms used. Basic icing and cake recipes enable the reader to use their favourite cake for any of the decorative ideas. In-depth instructions, with beautiful photography, will guide the beginner from the simplest of sugarpaste decorations through to covering cakes with royal icing and constructing tiered cakes with a professional finish.

I have made a few of the cakes from this book and it has definitely inspired me to try my own designs. Very informative with lots of hints and tricks and very clear instructions which I found so easy to follow.
