Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Carol has put together a range of fun designs to suit any occasion. The cakes are full of character and perfect if you donAEt have much experience in sugar modelling. Carol provides easy-to-follow instructions with plenty of other ideas so you can adapt the designs to suit your skills, and each project has an accompanying cupcake design which looks just as good on its own."—Cakes & Sugarcraft

Meet the Author

Carol Deacon began cake decorating when a friend asked her to make a birthday cake and the combination of cake and creativeness appealed to her. She entered a few icing competitions and won a car and a gold medal for her amazing creations. Carol decided to leave advertising to work at Jane Asher's cake shop in Chelsea London for a year. Carol then went freelance and as well as making celebration and wedding cakes has written for cake and food magazines—these include Cake Craft and Decoration and BBC Good Food. She is the author of Fabulous Party Cakes and Cupcakes. Carol lives in Hertfordshire, England with her husband, three children, a very sticky kitchen, and a whole bunch of ideas for her next book.
