Cakes to inspire and desire – book review

The seventh book from Lindy Smith is called Cakes to inspire and desire. It is an exciting, colorful and dramatic book for the more trained cake decorator. As the cake designs are a bit more difficult to make. But that should not stop the beginner, in cake decorating, to buy the book, because you can easilly take out the more simple ideas and still make a beautiful cake. This is also the book where she reveals on how she make her Wonky Cakes.

The book have more reading parts, to understand the way to construct the cakes. So it is important that you take your time to read, so that you fully understand how to do it. But Lindy has always a “shortcut” in her sleve on how to make the design more simple. It is listed with 36 unique designs in round – square and creative cakes. She also shows how to make her beautiful cake jewllery and her charming mini cakes to match the cakes.

I love in particular the luxurious orchid wedding and the eastern ornament cake designs and of course the charming wonky cakes.

Happy Caking!
