When I was in college, I worked in a scratch bakery, decorating cakes for all occasions. I remember first learning how-to make roses. My boss put me in the middle of the bakery department on Mother's Day with a decorating station and about 100 heart cakes. I made "made-to-order" cakes embellished with roses and a written sentiment on each cake while the customer watched and waited. I'm such a perfectionist and if the rose wasn't perfect, then it went back into the frosting tub and I started over! I had the best and most patient customers that day!
What I appreciated about this book is that Erin does a great job explaining the importance of having a solid cake or foundation to work on. She further explains how-to make frosting and other decorative elements in a clear, concise manner. I am new to fondant and she has given me the courage to try it! I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to delve into cake decorating.
