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 picked up this book in a bookstore today and thought it was incredible. I had no idea I’d be on this website later on looking at it! I must go and pick up a copy next time I go in.

    Oh! This post is a little bit old, but I just wanted to share that I am in the book too. Those days I was so busy and pregnant! So I never heard about the submissions, I had the luck that in December 31st Gina herself sent me a Flickr mail inviting me to participate. I was unsure because I did not know if it was real, but a friend of mine helped me to know that it was real. I sent my photos the last day (I had only 7 days to investigate and think!). A year ago I was told that 14 of my photos had made it. I’m very happy because since then many people have contacted me to congratulate me for what I do, I never would have imagined!
