Sylvia Weinstock's Sensational Cakes (Hardback)

Usually despatched in 1 week.


This lavishly illustrated tome is a celebration of the cake as art. It takes the reader on an inspired behind-the-scenes tour of this expert baker. We are welcomed into her artisanal workshop, where she shows us the crafting of her incredible confectionary masterpieces. We also see a panoply of imaginative sugar flower and fruit-wreathed marvels and ribbon piping methods, as well as a portfolio of incredible cake designs. Sensational Cakes will inspire readers to produce perfect edible fantasies of all shapes and sizes for such occasions as weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, leaving parties, christenings and bar mitzvahs. Whether the cake of choice is a multi-tiered extravaganza with spun sugar or a simple round layer cake adorned with flowers, it is always the centrepiece of any special occasion. Weinstock discusses how to determine the right cake size for your event, as well as different ways to display your confectionary creation. Basic cake recipes (chocolate, white, hazelnut, almond, yellow-butter and carrot) are provided, as well as recipes for fillings, icing and simple syrups. Fundamental cake-designing techniques are explored, and Weinstock provides an in-depth directory of resources for cake-decorating tools and supplies, specialty foods and kitchen equipment.
