As someone who loves exquisitely designed statement cakes, I fell in love with Alan Dunn's Celebration Cakes - Beautiful Designs for Weddings, Anniversaries, and Birthdays book, which elevates sugar paste into confection artistry.

Alan Dunn's Celebration Cakes - Beautiful Designs for Weddings, Anniversaries, and Birthdays not only provides sensational ideas and inspiration for special occasions that deserve a statement cake, it also provides you with the all the knowledge to succeed short of having Alan Dunn in the kitchen standing by your side guiding you, with its detailed step-by-step instructions.
The book provides in-depth information and discusses what you need toget started in the chapter on "Equipment and Materials," and thoughtfully provides a listing of Suppliers on where to purchase specialty materials and equipment at the back of the book.
The chapter entitled, "Recipes," provides essential recipes including how to make "cold porcelain," "royal icing," and "flowerpaste," and I found the chapter on "Techniques" to be especially helpful as it not only provides experttips, it always explains "the how" and "the why."
Armed with my new found knowledge, I read the chapter on how to create, "Flowers, Fruits, and Nuts," with wild abandon. Alan Dunn guides the reader on how to make sensational, realistic-looking artistic flowers including Fringed nigella, Sweet violet, Rose, Peony, and Lilac, how to create vegetables including Asparagus and Radish, as well as Hazelnuts, and even a Fantasy Butterfly, to name but a few of the many creations that dazzled my eyes; the possibilities are endless.
The last chapter is dedicated to "Celebration Cakes" and has wonderful designs for christenings, birthdays, anniversaries, engagements, weddings, Valentine's Day, and many more, and includes patterns to help you create thedesigns. The photographs throughout the book are simply irresistible inmouth-watering color to inspire flights of fantasy.
