I just loved this book as I make Birthday cakes for the grandies it has great ideas in. Most of my friend will get nice cookies for their Birthdays now

Description

Forget the image of maiden aunts and country fairs - cake decorating has become cutting edge! Peggy Porschen is at the front of this new trend. Her cute designs have won her a host of celebrity clients - she provided the chocolate Faberge eggs for Elton John's "White Tie and Tiara Ball" and designed the stunning cake for Stella McCartney's wedding. Her instantly recognisable designs are inspired by current trends: Bollywood mini cakes are lavishly decorated in rich pinks and glitzy golds, cookies include funky handbags, Doris Day Polka dots, candy coloured stripes and romantic sugar blossoms and butterflies. The book begins with an easy-to-follow introduction showing all the equipment, basic recipes and techniques needed to make the cakes. Readers of all skill levels can then go onto the subsequent chapters: Cookies, Cup Cakes, Miniature Cakes and Large Cakes. All the designs have comprehensive instructions and crystal clear photography so that a stunning professional finish can always be achieved.

Author Biography

Her work is much in demand and she has recently started supplying cakes to Fortnum and Mason. Her designs have also featured in magazines and newspapers such as OK, the Daily Mail and Brides magazine.
