Cake decorating is a skill that anyone can master with a little guidance. In this fact-packed reference book, Rachel Brown takes the reader back to basics and proves at the same time that cake decorating really can be fun. The aim of the book is to give answers to the really basic questions that beginners often ask, such as: how do you use a frame; how do you level off a domed cake; how do you cut a dowel and how do you get a modelled figure to sit. Starting with lining tins of different shapes and finishing with making perfect wedding cakes, the book also gives detailed information on covering cakes with marzipan and sugarpaste, adding ribbons, simple piping with royal icing, creating special effects with sugarpaste and basic modelling. Rachel also gives her tried-and-tested sponge and fruit cake recipes, with gluten-, egg-, sugar- and dairy-free versions for those with specific dietary requirements. Each chapter is liberally illustrated with step-by-step colour photographs and peppered with hints and tips from Rachel's rich experience. Here, in one indispensable book, is all the information you will ever need to make and decorate the perfect cake.
