In her practical and pretty book, the leading exponent of this extremely popular form of cake decorating shows the reader how to turn cakes into literal works of art using fondant painted with edible colours.
The Painted Cake provides detailed step-by-step instructions for more than 20 projects. These encompass cooking, constructing and painting baked goods ranging from single-level to multi- tiered cakes, as well as cupcakes and cookies. Most featured projects use a freehand painting technique, but templates of design elements are included where appropriate. The book progresses from the simplest projects through to more advanced, and includes detailed information on basic techniques and essential materials and equipment.
