October Book Review
CUPCAKES and FAIRY CAKES
by The Australian Women's Weekly
Brand new large-format softcover book, 120 pages, gorgeous, mouthwatering colour photos and step-by-step instructions
Cupcakes are wonderful for afternoon tea, of course, but these splendid and original little cakes should be given a much bigger role than that. Serve them as a special dessert at a chic dinner party (a different cupcake for each guest) or make a loved one (adult or child) a cupcake as a birthday cake. While the cupcakes in this book look like little works of art, the instructions on making them are clear and undaunting.
Includes cupcakes for every occasion - children's and grown-up party cakes, wedding cupcakes, Easter, Christmas and other special events.
Equipment list, techniques including working with chocolate, toffee and fondant, piping techniques, colouring sugar, drying and shaping fruit, dusting-on designs, sugar-frosting fruit and more
Cupcakes and Fairy Cakes is an Australian publication. All measurements are metric and metric cup & spoon.
