I received a copy of Artisan Cake Company’s Visual Guide to Cake Decorating in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.
I could spend hours touring food blogs. I have been a fan of Artisan Cake Company’s blog–you have to check our their post on 10 Totally Fantastic Animal Cake Toppers! The blog offers great tips and tricks for any baker, like how to get sharp corners on square cakes and more! Then I learned there’s a whole big book of Cake Decorating from Artisan Cake Company!
I have some cake decorating skills, but I still marvel at the skill behind gorgeously decorated cakes. You know, the ones with intricate designs, delicate features, that look like art and not something edible. I’ve seen them in bakeries. I’ve attended weddings where the cake was, dare I say it, more beautiful than the bride! I’ve gone to birthday parties where the cake stole the show! Fancy frosting and sculpted cakes are a great duo.
