    DescriptionA romantic Three-Column Wedding Cake adorned with fresh roses; eye-catching Kalei-doscope Cakes iced in geometric designs; glittering Bollywood-inspired lollipop cookies--you don't have to go to a high-end bakery to be able to serve these beautiful desserts at your next party. Master cake decorator Peggy Porschen shares her designs for the gorgeous cookies, cupcakes, and cakes that have graced some of the world's most discriminating tables--and they're as easy to create as they are spectacular. Written for everyone from beginning bakers to seasoned pros, each design in "Pretty Party Cakes" is broken down into basic steps that turn even complicated cake sculptures into rewarding, accessible creations. "Pretty Party Cakes" is brimming with dozens of innovative designs that are all based on fundamental recipes provided in Porschen's introduction to the basics. This section also covers the equipment and techniques needed to make her luscious creations. Once you've mastered the key skills, you can confidently move to chapters on cookies, cupcakes, miniature cakes, and large cakes. Designs range from sparkling heart cakes and butterfly-topped pastel cupcakes to enchanting, edible Treasure Boxes that can be used to present gifts. Ambitious bakers can create stunning desserts such as the Romantic Rose Tower cake and Gift Box Cake, and even simpler sweets such as Alphabet Cookies and Chocolate Canapes will wow your guests with their alluring presentation. Packed with tips, step-by-step images, and striking photographs to accompany every design, "Pretty Party Cakes" brings together everything you need to re-create Peggy Porschen's delicious masterpieces. Whether you're preparing a wedding cake for dozens of guests or creating a showstopping dessert for an intimate dinner party, these stunning designs will be sure to rival the cakes that line the windows of the chicest designer bakeries.
