The book that I am reading this week is titled “The International School of Sugarcraft Beginners- Book One” by Nicholas Lodge and Janice Murfitt
About the book
A beginner’s guide for anyone who has never attempted to decorate a cake, as well as an excellent refresher course for those with a knowledge of the basic techniques.
The book begins with an explanation of how to bake the perfect cake and recipes for every type of icing.
It then continues with step-by-step guidance on covering cakes, piping, run-outs and ribbon work.
By the end of the 20 lesson course, the reader should have the skills and confidence to bake, cover and decorate every one of the specially designed cakes which are illustrated throughout the book.
