About the author
Carol Deacon originally trained in Graphic Design and worked for a number of years as an art director in advertising. Then one day a friend asked her to make her a birthday cake… After a few months of baking and decorating cakes, Carol left advertising and went to work at Jane Asher’s Cake shop in Chelsea for a year. She also began to enter competitions to see how her work compared to others around the country and promptly won a car in a BBC Good Food Magazine cake decorating competition. And a gold medal in a British Sugarcraft Guild Exhibition with a fairy book cake.
Carol has written many cake decorating books. She has also written articles for many food magazines and has demonstrated on radio, TV, abroad and even on a cross channel ferry. Her aim is to show people how to achieve stunning results without having to invest heavily in specialist equipment or spend heaps of time on it. If you already own a rolling pin, knife and a fine paintbrush, you can probably make most of her cakes!
Carol's book, Perfect Party Cakes Made Easy is also available. It has 70 cake designs, including many from No-Time Party Cakes - click here for more information
