Twisted Cakes subverts sugary sweet cakes and celebration baking to produce designs with a nod to the dark side, all executed with a wicked sense of humor. From eyeball mini cakes for Halloween to a cake that looks like a lamb chop to amaze barbecue guests, there's a daring design for every occasion, including Valentine's Day, weddings, birthdays, and special events.
The author of Twisted Cakes, Debbie Goard, is an innovative Californian cake maker who has appeared on The Food Network, has a large internet following, and teaches classes on baking and cake creating to a wealth of eager students. Her instructions are easy to follow, even for the most challenging designs, and the 20 cake designs and recipes featured in Twisted Cakes are each accompanied by full-color photos.
Goard's cake-making directions will whet appetites and please novice and experienced bakers. As an added bonus for readers, the back of the book contains a pocket with design templates and stencils to create all of the terrifying cakes, such as the knife shape for stabbed cupcakes and ear and heart shapes for the 'Ears to You Dear' cake. Think of Twisted Cakes as a guide to making unique, creepy, crafts that are hard to look away from.
