Thread Starter 
Hi

i want to buy a book in which decoration is shown using butter Icing, Whip cream, chocolate and also decoration for dome cake.

i already have The Intl School of SugarCraft book 2 - Nicholas Lodge, There r so many ways but most of them r done on marzipan or fondant.

I'm attaching 2 simple decorated pics from Intl school of sugarcraft and want to buy book which shows similar kind of decoration simple & elegant.

I hope somebody can sugest me the right kind of book which i can use it as reference and practice to improve my skills.

Thanks

Not sure what book to recommend, but I can recommend some techniques to research.

The side of both cakes is decorated with a Wilton comb. The top of the pink cakes & the right side of the chocolate cake are decorated with Cornelli lace. The border of the pink cake is a shell border. The top right side of the chocolate cake is also decorated with a rosette.

Almost all (& maybe all) of those techniques are taught in the Wilton method. Before purchasing a book, even the Wilton books (which are very economical) I would search the web. There are many resources for these techniques.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

Hi

Thanks for replaying but its not the techniques what Im looking for almost every technique there is I'm sure i know, i may take 20 to 30 minutes but i can decorate the cake & present it as professional.

I'm looking for magazine/book which has HQ pics of cakes for birthday or any occasions except marzipan/fondant/sugar flowers/wedding and cake recipes.

I just want some book having full size hq pics of cake which i can refer or inspire to create my own version of Gateau.

I hope somebody can help me finding the right kind of book/magazine which only has full size hq cakes pics and not wasting pages showing recipe and method of how to decorate the cakes.

Thanks icon_smile.gif

Sounds like you need some old school books from before fondant was really popular. Try looking at the library; I love checking out cake books there before I buy to see if I like it.
