Overview

Colette Peters's one-of-a-kind wedding cakes — for which she charges hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars — have made her America's most sought-after culinary artist. Now, with this dazzling cookbook, brides-and-grooms-to-be can bake their own Colette's wedding cake — or commission a professional baker to follow one of Colette's designs.

Illustrated throughout with eye-popping color photographs, step-by-step drawings, and templates, Colette's Wedding Cakes showcases more than thirty of the author's most amazing wedding creations, organized by season — a love-in-bloom cake, an Edwardian cake, a chocolate fantasia cake, an art deco cake, a coral reef cake, and many others.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Peters is an artist and former Tiffany's designer turned cake decorator extraordinaire. Here she presents detailed instructions, accompanied by line drawings and color photographs, of three dozen of her elaborate creations. Her collection is somewhat more sophisticated than Greg Robinson and Max Schofield's The Icing on the Cake ( LJ 5/15/89), and cake bakers with lots of patience should find it inspiring. For special collections.
Denise Perry Donavin
From the creator of "Colette's Cakes" comes a splendid collection of Christmas confections, cookies, cakes, and other creations. Plenty of novel ideas appear beautifully illustrated on these pages, but most will be too difficult for the amateur, even though precise instructions are given for every item. There are a few, such as Christmas cookie boxes and edible ornaments, that the dilettante could attempt. A elegant treasury of treats.
