Wedding Cakes You Can Make 
(Wiley)

This is my second wedding cake book and I have streamlined the process for all you baking enthusiasts. (The images here are ones that I took during our photo shoot). Here you will find the Essential White, Yellow and Chocolate Cakes as well as Essential Moistening Syrup and Essential Buttercream. All of the cakes in the book spin off of these basics. For instance, the Chocolate Covered Cherry Cake begins with the white cake, but has kirsch soaked cherries and bittersweet chocolate shavings added to the batter. The syrup is enhanced with additional kirsch. The buttercream filling is filled with chopped chocolate covered cherries!  You will find everything from a light-hearted cupcake tower covered with coconut and sugared pansies, a Valentine’s Day cake jam-packed with red roses, chocolate truffles and chocolate dipped strawberries to a square chocolate caramel cake covered with bittersweet chocolate tiles. Think of me as your wedding cake fairy and I will guide you through the process of making the most delicious, spectacular celebratory cake you have every imagined! This book is a great resource for bakers who like to make cakes for a crowd – even beyond weddings! Think anniversaries, graduations and large office parties…
