Make the holiday season even sweeter with this beginner's guide to decorating impressive and tasty cakes!
Decorating cakes at home is easy and fun, thanks to Rose Atwater's clear and detailed cake decorating guide. Rose started her "accidental cake business" in late 2009 with more than 20 practice cakes she made for her brother's wedding. By the following year, her prototypes had caught the attention of friends and family and turned into a steady stream of orders.
Since then, she has turned her talents into a thriving business, decorating more than 1,500 cakes for her blog, Rose Bakes. Now, with Cake Decorating for Beginners, she turns her years of knowledge and experience into a comprehensive cake cookbook for any aspiring cake decorator!
Getting started — Begin with basic recipes for baking the cakes you'll decorate and get an overview of the decorating tools and ingredients you'll need.
Essential techniques — Learn how to decorate with frosting, piping, fondant, and chocolate so you can create cakes for any occasion, from baby showers to birthdays.
Instructional cakes — Find 10 complete cake tutorials to help you put your new skills into practice, like a Shades of Blue Hexagon Cake, a Sweet Flowers Wedding Cake, and a Bright & Happy Sprinkles Cake.
This cake decorating book for beginners contains everything you need to create your own gorgeous, photo-worthy confections!
