Overview

Mich Turner is London’s top cake designer for society and celebrities alike. She has refined a simple and modular approach—start with a dozen basic recipes and let the icing, glazes, and finishing touches be the key to perfecting the design. Here, she focuses on the wedding cake and offers inspiration and guidance to brides-to-be as well as to caterers, chefs, and wedding planners. The cutting of the cake is one of the most cherished memories of any wedding. This portfolio of Mich Turner’s stunning cake designs is organized thematically, from simple sunny cakes redolent of a springtime garden wedding to opulent more autumnal chocolate multi-tiered sculptural cakes. Mich also shows how to present the cake to create drama and a real sense of occasion, including advice on every detail, from the type of tablecloth to use and how best to display candles, flowers, and ribbon. Mich Turner’s wedding cakes are regularly featured in Brides, Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar, and this book amply demonstrates how to achieve perfection.

    Wow!

    Absolutely beautiful, inspiring, artistry! They are perfumed with beauty! I was amazed how simple clean lines and painstaking piping and color balance can still make me awe! There are also stencils to guide you. This book is an excellent inspiration resource. It was a real pleasure to look at her cakes. She is what I call a 'cakie'(someone who loves the art of bakig and decorating). I can only imagine how wonderful they taste! Well worth the price!! Long live the cake!! Long live the 'cakie'!!!!
