Cool New Books

Just so you know, I received for Xmas, Confetti Cakes Cookbook by Elisa Strauss and Romantic Cakes by Peggy Porschen. I've yet to create anything, but when I do I'll give my appraisal of the instructions. Peggy's book may be useful for my class, as she does a lot of flowers, while Elisa's book has more fun styled cakes without being tacky.

If you have used these books, please let me know!

Hi Clare, Happy new year! Did you enjoy the festive season? I loved it! The books look great, I've had a flick through them both in the book shop before now and the cakes look amazing, i can't wait to see you bake some! I'm on a healthy eating month :) I'm not sure there are many 'healthy' cakes for me to bake but I will try, lol! Thanks for your support too!
