Summary

This book is a versatile guide for the novice and the more experienced cake decorator alike, to creating a selection of stunning cake designs for formal or informal events that will add that all essential wow factor to any event.
The basic principles for choosing and designing your cake are essentially the same whether the cake is for a wedding, birthday, anniversary or christening. Mich guides you through the many layers of decision making: from establishing the celebration theme to the different cake shapes to choose from, from the type of icing that is most suitable to use, to the specific decorative techniques that give the cake its unique appeal.
Divided into five chapters, the book covers all the relevant technical and decorative aspects: cake techniques; iced cakes; chocolate cakes; cakes by event; and signature cakes.
