Editorial Reviews

George Cohen
Here are 70 cake recipes for special occasions--baby and wedding showers, housewarmings, graduations, birthdays, and holidays, such as Christmas, New Year's, Easter, Fourth of July, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Hanukkah, President's Day, Mother's Day, and Father's Day. With decorative gels, candy, chocolate, mint leaves, coconut, food coloring, nonpareils, and sprinkles, an assortment of cake decorations can be created: gym shoes for an athlete, a car to send friends off on a trip, ballet slippers for an aspiring ballerina, basketballs, soccer balls, baseball caps, sailboats, snowmen, spaceships, trains, and teddy bears. There is a chapter on cake basics that offers tips on batter, on measuring ingredients, on using shortenings, eggs, and chocolate, on removing layer cakes from pans, on using dowels, on freezing and storing cakes, on using decorating bags, and on making rosettes, flowers, borders, and leaf designs. The finished book will have 57 color photographs and 96 line drawings.
