Whether it's a birthday or wedding, promotion or dinner party, there's no better way to celebrate than with a slice of glorious cake. In Decorated April Carter shows home bakers how to take your cakes to the next level of amazingness without all the fuss. Crammed with tips and tricks, there is something for everyone, from beginners to experienced bakers. Use fresh flowers, fruit and sprinkles for decorative impact, master the art of piping, add tiers, colour and height to your basic sponge, and discover new and delicious flavour combinations. Try your hand at a flourless chocolate almond cake with an impressive decoration of amaretto whipped cream, toasted almonds and chocolate shards, or for ambitious bakers there's a choux bun tower with rainbow icing! Delight your friends with the dark chocolate blackberry cake, topped with blackberries dipped in edible glitter for some extra sparkle. If you are bored of novelty cakes and fussy sugarcraft isn't your thing, Decorated is the book for you.
