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."
