Product description

In her very successful first book, "Pretty Party Cakes", celebrity cake designer Peggy Porschen brought us a range of fabulously stylish decorated cakes, cupcakes and cookies. Now, in "Romantic Cakes", she has applied her inspirational vision to her own favourite subject area - cookies and cakes for romantic occasions. There are delights to celebrate all the steps on the course of true love, from the earliest stirrings of affection on St. Valentine's Day, through the proposal and engagement, the bridal shower and hen or stag nights up to the big day itself. And for the weddings, Peggy has included all manner of irresistible inventions, from decorated cookie favors, bridesmaids' gifts and decorations for the children's table. Beginning with an easy-to-follow introduction covering all the equipment, basic recipes and techniques needed to make the cakes, the book is designed to suit both beginners and more experienced cooks. Chapters cover Cookies, Small Cakes and Large Cakes and include delights such as Venetian Mask Cookies, Je t'Aime Fondant Fancies and the breathtaking Bed of Roses. User-friendly text and clear step-by-step photography make even the most elaborate creations achievable so that every romantic occasion can be made a little bit sweeter.

Me encanta Peggy Porschen, y obviamente éste no es un libro para expertos, pero si estáis empezando es magnífico, lo recomiendo, explicaciones excelentes y las técnicas explicadas además de las fotografías son una maravilla.
