Description: Ask anyone who decorates cakes -- there is always something new to learn, some new trick that creates a special effect, a new idea for dressing up an occasion. This book is loaded with them, and all in full color. 63 cake and cookie designs to choose from. 213 step-by-step, close-up photos that show how to make the designs, patterns for the cut cakes, and full-size, full-color practice sheets. 

Clear, Attractive Instructions That Work - Over 200 how-to photos, that show every step in full color. Many of the shots were taken over-the-shoulder of the Master Baker so the reader can see exactly how his or her own hands should look. (The editors actually videotaped every procedure, then had each essential step photographed in color.) And the pictures are large, with captions written in a clear, down-to-earth style, almost like a friend speaking to you. 

Broad Appeal to Decorators of Any Ability - Have you ever tried this creative hobby? You can learn to make buttercream borders, stars, and swags in less than an hour from an experienced teacher who knows how a beginner feels. Want to start making luscious, realistic flowers with pink royal icing? See how it's done the easy way by following the 16 steps in full-color photos starting on page 58. Do you know how to make a dozen long-stemmed chocolate roses? Look at the photo on pages 116-117 and the coloring and molding secrets that follow. 

Convenience and Good Value - This book is organized like a professional baking school course (which is where it came from- The Roth Institute of Baking in New York). Each chapter introduces a new skill, then demonstrates it in step-by-step-color photos, then gives you creative cake designs to practice the technique. No need to buy expensive tools. Patterns and practice sheets are included; professional advice on how to price and sell your cakes yourself; plus 50 recipes. 

Name the Occasion - Weddings and Anniversaries, Birthdays for Kids and Grown-ups, Baby Showers, House Warmings, Valentines, Father's Day, even a Chocolate Castle. The "Candy Dough" orchids look almost like real ones (page 104).
