Product Description

The Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating is a comprehensive how-to book about all of the most popular cake decorating techniques, including piped frosting, fondant, and hand-modelled figures. For each technique, there is an overview of the tools and materials used and complete instructions with photos. The organization provides easy access to information with step-by-step directions and 600 full-colour photos for clear understanding. Easy projects allow the reader to try the techniques in each section. Galleries of decorated cakes offer the reader examples and inspiration to pursue the hobby for themselves. Sugar artist Autumn Carpenter perfectly explains her book: "If you are a beginning decorator, this book will serve as a step-by-step course in cake decorating. If you are an experienced or professional decorator, this book will quickly become your go-to guide when seeking out new techniques."
Autumn Carpenter is a skilled sugar artist, demonstrator, teacher, and author. She is a third generation candy-maker and confectionery artist; growing up she worked closely with her mother on books, product development, and classes. Carpenter demonstrates annually at the International Cake Exploration Societé and travels the US teaching her craft. She has self-published several books on cake decorating, cookie decorating, cupcakes, and candy making.

I had checked out the inside of this book online prior to putting it in my wish list. All the subjects it covers in the contents were everything I needed more information on. I am more the type to learn through not only reading instructions but more so visual-seeing the step by step pictures of how the product ultimately is made and finished. I think that for anyone starting out in making and decorating cakes, this is the best book to start out with. I wish that this book was available when i started because I have so many other cake books that covers a lot of separate things where as this book covers it all. Don't think about it, just purchase it! It's worth the investment in the end!!!

From the very talented hands of Autumn Carpenter, comes this wonderful and detailed volume of cake decorating, born of her love of cake decorating and teaching. Her store, Country Kitchen Sweet Art, located in Fort Wayne, Indiana has all things related to cake decorating. And because of that love, plus the myriad of questions she has answered over the years and help she has given so many people in this field, especially those first starting out, she has compiled this manual.

It is written on thick, solid paper with bright colors and clear photography, mostly step-by-step tutorials. It is a heavy book that measures approximately 8"x11" in size so its large and with easy print. It is divided into 4 sections and is color-coded on the page headings.

This would be an excellent book for any beginner, and for those with a need for a good reference book. The photographs are in color, and in ordered numbered. I would venture to say that just the sequential photography alone could suffice for someone for whom English isn't a primary language. Projects are also included at the end of each chapter.

All aspects of cake and cupcake decorating have been covered so that if you see something that you would like, you should be able to do the same, perhaps with a wee bit of planning. Also, many of the tools that are used are easily accessible from craft and hobby stores, and when needed, there are plenty of US companies that can be contacted for the rest.

The four section ares:

SECTION ONE:

Basic Cake Preparation
Every tool and cake decorating toy needed for all the projects in this book, and then some, are listed and shown along with an explanation of each.

Format: Paperback
This is HOW a guide to anything should look like. Has high-resolution, close-up, step-by-step photos for everything - with simple instructions for each step. EXCELLENT for a beginner like me. Because instructions alone cannot teach much. I was waiting for this book for 2 weeks after having placed the order on amazon. It said usually ships in 5-10 days. But after the estimated delivery date had passed, I did not want to wait anymore with uncertainty. So, I canceled the order and ordered from ecookbooks.com on their website. Luckily, they had it in stock and I got the book within 6 days. I needed the book badly as I'm a pastry arts student. This book was not my coursebook but after looking up various cake books, this book, I thought, was ideal for me who is not good at decorating. AND I DID NOT REGRET because it is a GREAT book.

I have brought a lot of cake decorating books over the years.....this one is worth the money. It covers tons, I means TONS of cake decorating skills. It has a great modeling section. It covers everything from basics to more advanced skills, like using certain cake fondant/gumpaste cutters. It even has a section on the Cricut Cake. It should be a must have book in your cake decorating library.
