Book Review: Artisan Cake Company’s Visual Guide to Cake Decorating

For those of us who are ever racking our brains on the ‘how to’ of structural support when attempting to make that ‘gravity defying’ cake creation, celebrated cake artist Elizabeth Marek completely demystifies that mind boggling mystery.

The Artisan Cake Company’s Visual Guide to Cake Decorating takes us on a detailed tour of how to build cakes from beginning to end (as well as from the bottom to the top) along with the Science of Structure, Starting with recipes for cakes and frostings to the oh so important Elements and Principles explaining in depth how to ‘balance’ your cake design, the use of color and the theory behind it.

This book will help guide you to take your cake decorating skills to the next level with tutorials on Textures and Finishes, Making Sugar Flowers, and Sculpting and Modelling Figures.

In my humble opinion I think this book should be entitled ‘How to Make Kickass Cakes by Lizzo Marek’ and that everyone should have this book in their arsenal of the cake decorating section of their own personal library.
