Home Bakers, like myself, and Home Pinteresters ….yes I just made up a word…..are getting a real knack for baking up delicious treats for their home parties. But where I find myself falling short is when it comes to decorating my cakes. I do a relatively good job, and from a distance sure the cake looks great! But I’d really like to craft my skills and I feel that with Shelly Baker‘s new book The Complete Book of Icing, Frosting & Fondant Skills I’ll be able to do just that! She covers tips from fondant, royal icing, buttercream, marzipan or sugar paste, readers will find everything they need to create fresh-baked perfection. Enjoy her book HERE.
I am most excited about this next book by Amanda Rettke, author of the blog I Am Baker. She has crafted together an amazingly beautiful cookbook titled: SURPRISE-INSIDE CAKES: Amazing Cakes for Every Occasion–With a Little Something Extra Inside where she shows her readers, both skilled and beginners the magic of “surprise-inside” cakes. Seriously stunning, she displays cakes with hearts, bumblebees and more, giving your guests an added pleasure to eating your cakes. This is one you will definitely need to scope out.
