This book shows you how to apply popular craft techniques to cake decorating, creating edible crafts using fondant icing (sugar paste), modelling paste, chocolate paste, buttercream icing, ganache and royal icing. Whether you are a baker or cake decorator who would like to learn new crafts and apply them to your cakes or a crafter who would like to learn to bake and decorate cakes, there is something for everyone. Katrien chose tray bake cakes (rectangular sheet cakes) to work on, keeping the shape simple and focusing on the craft techniques used to decorate them. The cake is a blank canvas on which artwork is created. The inspiration for the decorative designs comes from paper crafts, mosaics, embroidery, printed fabric patterns, quilting, applique and whatever craft you can imagine. This book features 18 cake craft projects from start to finish, as well as mini cakes, showing you step by step how to create your own works of art. As an added bonus there are some tried and trusted recipes for cakes, buttercream, ganache and fondant icing as well as designs to use in decorations.
