You’ll learn how to make delicious cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, and more—and transform them into fantastic creations. In Cool Cupcakes, make pink piggy cupcakes, classic butterfly cakes, pretty spotty cupcakes, and more. The next chapter, Crazy Cookies, gives you ideas for creating ladybird cookies and pretty star cookies, as well as for gingerbread—including gingerbread families, animals, and a village. Then have a go at the Brilliant Brownies and Cake Pops—from adorable penguin pops to delicious brownie pops and cute brownie owls. Finally, take your pick from the Novelty Cakes, where there are super snowmen, under the sea mini cakes, and honey flake crunchies. There are basic recipes so that you can make the cakes in any flavor you want, and a techniques section that will teach you all you’ll need to know, such as how to pipe frosting, and how to make shapes out of marzipan. All the projects are easy to follow with adorable artworks to guide you along the way; plus, each one has a grade so you can start with the easiest and then move on as your decorating skills improve.
