I saw this book at a baking supplies shop in Taman Megah today and I just had to have it. It is a local publication and is written by Grace Mariasoosai, baker extraordinaire and founder of Grace Home Cakes, School of Baking and Decorating. It features some of her fabulous creations using butter cream, fondant and sugarpaste decorations. There are also recipes and step by step instructions to create these amazing cakes. She is really one generous lady. Thank you Grace!
My daughter especially liked the Fairy Tale cake on the cover and now wants it for her birthday next year. Yikes! I don't know whether I am up to it ... maybe I'll order it from Grace. On the other hand, I can go for one of her courses at Grace Home Cakes, School of Baking and Decorating.
As can be seen in my recent projects, I am becoming more interested in using fondant in my cakes, So far, it is limited to 2-D motifs and 3-D figurines on my buttercream decorated cakes. I hope to be doing some fondant covered cakes in the future ... starting with my Christmas Project 2009.
Wish me luck, Cheers for now!
