Wedding Cake Art and Design: A Professional Approach (0470381337) cover image
Rather than simply including beautiful wedding cakes for cake decorators and students to copy, Garrett educates readers to design cakes based on their own creativity and their client's unique needs instead. Starting with a look at the design process, Garrett then moves from simple cake designs to elegant, elaborate, whimsical, and theme cakes. Each chapter includes scenarios for student practice with expert guidance from the author. The essential topic of setting up a wedding cake business is covered, and it also includes tested recipes and helpful resources.
