Book Description

April 24 2012
Bake it, Craft it, Style it! Amy Atlas, home baker, crafter, and party planner extraordinaire, shows her readers and fans how to create fabulous sweets tables for adults and kids, combining easy recipes, dressed-up store-bought treats, and craft ideas, to make dessert a fitting grand finale to any gathering.

Amy Atlas gained an international following when she introduced the concept of meshing baking and crafting to make beautiful sweets spreads. She has designed tables for Brooke Shields, Electrolux with Kelly Ripa, Gayle King, Martha Stewart Weddings, Mindy Weiss, and O Magazine. Since 2008, hundreds of thousands of readers have flocked to her award-winning blog, Sweet Designs. Now they'll learn how she does it for the first time in her first book filled with brand-new tables, original recipes, do-it-yourself instructions, and dozens of tips and secrets.

Sweet Designs includes 15 chapters filled with more than 100 recipes for every kind of irresistible treat, plus over 75 easy, affordable DIY craft projects to make them even more special. Each chapter features an amazing dessert table that reflects themes Amy's clients most often request: a favorite color, design, flavor, destination, passion, or holiday. Amy tells readers how they can make just one item, mix and match items from different tables, or make the dessert tables as shown.

For every maid of honor who needs to plan an epic bridal shower (and then later the baby shower), every mom who needs to put together a birthday bash her kids will never forget, and every Scrabble aficionado who wants to throw the game-night party to end all game-night parties, Amy serves up that elusive "wow factor" to make every celebration an event to remember.

5.0 out of 5 stars HUGE books of dessert and candy bar secrets May 2 2012
By C. Stone - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Amazing. That one word is the only one you need to describe this book. I got this Amy Atlas book in anticipation of my May 2012 wedding (we're doing a dessert bar in lieu of the traditional wedding cake) and was floored when it arrived. First, IT'S HUUUUGE! Page after page of full colored images and instructions - it's a tome! Second, there's so much more infomration than I had expected - TONS of recipes, resource guides, and DIYs. Three, it's not just rehashs from Atlas's blog - there are lots of mew ideas and projects. Last, the instructions and DIYs are so simple and easy to follow. Wonderful book.

As an admiring and long time follower of Amy Atlas' work, her first book "Sweet Designs: Bake It, Style It, Craft It" was all that I imaged it to be and more.

The book is organized into dessert themed chapters which makes it easy and fun to read through!

For anyone who loves to entertain and host unique and delicious parties this book is for you! It's also inspirational to anyone wishing to follow in Amy Atlas's footsteps in becoming an event planner/sweet stylist and it has certainly helped me figure out how to execute and pursue my passion for event planning and sweet table design.

Oh my, this book is like hostess porn, the photos are AMAZING. There are so many ideas, and best of all the information is there for you to replicate these tables at home!
