Book Description

Sept. 10 2012
The magic of the holidays comes alive all year long with these delightful and delicious decorated cakes!

In Holiday Cakes and Cupcakes, professional cake decorator Carol Deacon's incredible cake designs run the gamut of seasonal holidays to provide that special touch that only a personally baked and decorated cake brings to the table. Deacon shows you how to create 21 fabulous cakes, including Christmas cakes, Halloween cakes, Valentine's Day cakes, Easter cakes, and cakes to fit any other occasion.

The step-by-step instructions ensure that all the cakes and cupcakes will be easy to make and become the frosted focus of your holiday celebration. Each cake has a matching cupcake design that can be made as an accompaniment to the cake or, if you wish, on their own as the stars of the occasion in their own right.

Deacon also shares sugarcraft tips and tricks along with her winning cake baking recipes so that your holiday cakes will taste as wonderful as they look. So make the most of your next holiday by creating a cake that will impress and delight your family and friends.

Product Description


"Carol has put together a range of fun designs to suit any occasion. The cakes are full of character and perfect if you donAEt have much experience in sugar modelling. Carol provides easy-to-follow instructions with plenty of other ideas so you can adapt the designs to suit your skills, and each project has an accompanying cupcake design which looks just as good on its own."—Cakes & Sugarcraft

About the Author

Carol Deacon began cake decorating when a friend asked her to make a birthday cake and the combination of cake and creativeness appealed to her. She entered a few icing competitions and won a car and a gold medal for her amazing creations. Carol decided to leave advertising to work at Jane Asher's cake shop in Chelsea London for a year. Carol then went freelance and as well as making celebration and wedding cakes has written for cake and food magazines-these include Cake Craft and Decoration and BBC Good Food. She is the author of Fabulous Party Cakes and Cupcakes. Carol lives in Hertfordshire, England with her husband, three children, a very sticky kitchen, and a whole bunch of ideas for her next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Santa sliding on a triangle of a cake Oct. 4 2012
By Himri - Published on
The book has many pictures with creative ideas both simple and complex. A simple pipe cleaner become the antlers on a candy cane. The complex ones are pared o simple ones in subsequent pictures. This act of breaking down a whole decoration into its parts is sure to get your creative juices flowing to mold the fondant in a way to customise and please whoever you want to decorate the cake for. The Chinese Dragon cake, summer Holiday Flowers cake (with its 3/4 standing cake), a hot dog, Thanksgiving Turkey Cake (with a story of a turkey crushing the cake built onto the cake).
Edible paper. I enjoyed it as a kid. some papercutting to make a snowflake. wow.
Its a magical world that the author Carol Deacon presents to us. Whats even better is we can make it ours.
