Celebrate with a Cake!

Mark those special moments with a cake as memorable as the occasion.

Novelty cake designer Lindy Smith offers a comprehensive guide to making a range of beautiful celebration cakes, and guides the reader step by step from baking and carving to icing and adding special finishing touches. A clear techniques section introduces the wide range of equipment available to today’s cake maker, and explains how to make sponge, fruitcake, fondant, buttercream, and other recipes.

The fifteen projects have easy-to-follow illustrated steps for creating and decorating the cakes. Handy tips for shortcuts and creative variation ideas throughout allow you to tailor each cake to your timescale and taste, resulting in bespoke cakes for any occasion—weddings, anniversaries, christenings, birthdays, and more. In addition, handy templates and cutting guides are provided to ensure professional results every time.
