1,000 Ideas for decorating cupcakes, cakes, and cookies

Back in October last year, my former co-writer Michelle wrote about two sisters, Sandra Salamony and Gina Brown.

They were seeking submissions of photos with decorated cupcakes, cakes and cookies for their new book: 1,000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cakes and Cookies. After seeing the interesting cover of the book, I was wondering if some of CakeJournals readers will be featured in the book with their sweet creations? Please share with me.

You can read more about the new book and pre-order it from my bookstores:

Happy Caking!

    I saw the ad for submussion in your website and responded while riding on the bus to work. Five months later Gina contacted me and 28 of my creations were shortlisted and eventually 16 were successful. Thanks so much and I’m proud to have my work on display for my kids to see for a lifetime.
