Her repertoire includes not just grand, romantic, floral wedding cakes but cakes appropriate for andlt;Iandgt;allandlt;/Iandgt; of life's festive moments.

Sylvia shares recipes and some great ways to improve your skills as a caker. This is one book worth investing in if you want some good know how. She shows step by step on some flowers and how to make gum paste ribbons. Just an all over good book to have if you want good information.
