Celebrate special moments such as weddings, anniversaries, Christenings and birthdays with a cake as memorable as the occasion. Well-known novelty cake designer Lindy Smith offers a comprehensive guide to making a range of beautiful celebration cakes, and guides the reader step by step from baking and carving to icing and adding special finishing touches. A clear techniques section introduces the wide range of equipment available to today's cake maker, and explains how to make sponge, fruitcake, fondant, buttercream and other recipes required.

The 15 projects have easy-to-follow illustrated steps revealing how to create and decorate the cakes. Handy tips for short-cuts and creative variation ideas throughout allow you to tailor each cake to your timescale and taste, resulting in bespoke cakes for any occasion. Handy templates and cutting guides are provided to ensure professional results every time.

Various techniques can be found in the book, giving you the opportunity to achieve such effects as the gentle folds of fine fabric, delicate rose petals, soft, liquid swirls for decorative icing as well as modelling a gift-wrapped present, flowers, a baby, and a butterfly. You will also find exuberant ways of topping a celebration cake using feathers, hearts and flowers on fine wires.

To accompany the innovative cakes in the book there are also dress up and dress down ideas so that you can adapt the cakes according to your particular occasion, or make the designs simpler if you are new to cake decorating or more advanced if you are more experienced, or you may simply need a quicker version There are also matching cup cake designs or variation ideas to go with each project. Most of the cakes are covered with sugarpaste (rolled fondant), but there are also buttercream-covered cakes, Exquisite Bouquet and Birthday Butterfly, for those who prefer them.

The cakes exhibit a variety of colours, and this is an area that can be particularly complex for the novice cake decorator. To help you to understand the way that colours work together I have included a detailed section on colour, which I hope will give you confidence to approach new colour schemes in your own designs.
