Impress your friends and loved ones with your cake decoration skills - whatever the occasion. Ann Pickard sets out 25 fun and fabulous cakes that are ideal for that special celebration, including an enchanting fairy castle, a delightful Jack-in-the-box, mouth-watering chocolate ruffles, a Halloween Pumpkin, babys cradle and a figgy pudding. No prior knowledge is needed - Ann has simplified the process in an ingenious way, so even beginners will be amazed by the fantastic results they can achieve following her fully illustrated step-by-step instructions. Making royal icing, covering the cake, creating a range of cake characters and piping hair and grass are just some of the basic techniques carried through the 25 projects that are suitable for the beginner to the more advanced cake maker. Whatever the occasion, the personal touch will mean so much more and the guest of honour will be delighted to receive a cake that has been custom-made just for them.

Each technique is presented in detail and illustrated with delectable photographs, from making royal icing, to using a special piping nozzle for creating hair and grass, to modeling some of the sweetest characters your party guests ever ate.
