CakeJournals November favourites

Welcome to the first monthly post of CakeJournal’s favourites. Every month I will make a post about cake books, cake tools, cake crafts, cake recipes and cake websites that I find interesting. So lets start with CakeJournals November favourites.

I have been waiting impatiently for the book by Zoe Clark: Cake Decorating at home. I was not disappointed when I opend the book. It is filled with sweet and romantic ideas for cake decoration. It has easy to follow step by step instructions and I like how she use both cakes, cookies and cupcakes for the projects. So you can pick out the parts that you like the best. One of my favourite projects in the book are Zoe’s Secret garden party with a birdcage theme. If you love Peggy Porschen, you will also love the book Cake decorating at home by Zoe Clark.

Some of the (new) cake tools that I have been looking at for a long time now, are these sweet Teatime moulds from Squires Kitchen. There are two different designs and with those in your tool box, you can style up any cake, cookie or cupcake with dainty fondant decorations.

Take a look at my friend Pia Marianne’s sweet mini cakes decorated with the mould decorations. So pretty! I just know that these sweet moulds will be in my in my own toolbox very soon.

With Christmas soon approaching I have been looking at this Mini Ball Pan from Wilton. Perfect for making beautiful decorated Christmas bauble mini cakes.

Finally, I will get a copy of the book: 1,000 Ideas for Decorating Cupcakes, Cakes and Cookies by Sandra Salamony and Gina Brown. A book filled with lots of ideas and inspiration. I cant wait to flick through it and hopefully recognise some of the creations made by some of you readers and other friends from the cakeblog world.

    Hi, Louise,
    I’m the publicity director at Storey Publishing,and we’d like to send you a new cake cookbook we’ve just published entitled A World of Cake. Written by Krystina Castella, it features 150 recipes from cake traditions around the world. We’d be happy to offer it to your readers as a giveaway as well. May I send it to you for your opinion? Thanks!

    Ooooooo. That book looks amazing! I have been looking at Thanksgiving themed cupcakes (I’m in the US). So many to choose from to bake… so little time!

    That’s too funny. I just ordered both of those books from Amazon. I was hoping the decorating at home book would be as good as the 1000 booked seemed.
