The Cake Decorator's Motif Bible is wiro-bound for easy lay-flat use. It provides innovative inspiration with complete and truly fail-safe instructions for unforgettable results every time.
The motifs shown here are mainly made from fondant, although the designs also lend themselves to other materials such as royal icing or chocolate modeling paste. Every cake will be a unique creation composed by you.
Each page describes how to make the motif and gives hints on where to mix and match the design to complete a unique cake top. The cakes can be coated with the covering of your choice be it royal icing, buttercream, chocolate ganache or fondant. Go to the pattern selector on pages 50-61 to make your choice.
With few exceptions, the designs can be prepared off the cake and then placed in position once the cake has been covered. Motif sizes can easily be adjusted to fit a variety of cake sizes and shapes, according to your choice.
