New softcover book with beautiful full-colour photos, templates and detailed instructions. 208 pages, published 2010.

Baking and cake decorating have never been more popular. And whereas there are many books showing how to decorate cakes to a high finished standard, there are very few which focus on delicious cake recipes as well as simple but pretty decoration. If you thought cake decorating was costly and difficult, this is the book that will change your mind forever. Fiona Cairns is bursting with new ideas for making delicious, visually stunning cakes and biscuits easy - even for the least experienced cook - and for far less money than you thought.

Choose from more than 30 delicious recipes for large cakes, small cakes and biscuits in the first part - BAKE - and over 50 fabulous decoration schemes formed from them in the second part - decorate.

From an eye-popping gold leaf-encased torte for a special celebration, to wickedly sophisticated chocolate-chilli cupcakes, Fiona shows every aspiring hostess how to achieve glamorous, fun entertaining from her own kitchen, using easy techniques and tricks that make cake decorating achievable for all. Fiona's cake recipes have the sensual deliciousness often lacking in the sterile creations of other cake decorators. Be transported to a summer garden by the whole crystallised roses on top of a cake filled with the heady flavours of orange blossom and pistachio, or celebrate springtime with a white chocolate cardamom truffle cake, adorned with sugar eggs and fresh spring leaves. Children and the young at heart alike will adore the warmth of Fiona's cakes baked inside ice-cream cones, topped with pastel buttercream that won't melt in the sun, while anyone, regardless of diets, can enjoy her delicious vegan fruit cake recipe.

Dazzle and indulge your friends with modern, magnificent treats that taste divine, using very simple decorating secrets to create impressive cakes that possess great warmth and charm. Here, finally, is the cake book where every recipe is a keeper and each stunning creation made easy to achieve.

About the Author

Fiona Cairns made the cake for Prince William and Catherine Middleton's 2011 Royal Wedding. Fiona trained as a pastry chef at the Michelin-starrede Hambleton Hall. Her greatest innovation was the miniature cake - since widely copied - and first sold to the Conran Shop while working from her kitchen table. She has supplied cakes to Fortnum & Mason for 15 years and her company now bakes 750,000 exquisite cakes every year for Waitrose, Harrods, Selfridges and Le Bon Marche in Paris. Fiona has made bespoke cakes for Bono, Pink Floyd, Simply Red and Sinead O'Connor and she also makes Sir Paul McCartney's Christmas cake every year. Despite the fact that her bakery doubled in size in 2010, Fiona loves home baking and still makes cakes at home for friends and family. She lives in Leicestershire with her husband and two children. Her first book, Bake and Decorate, was published in 2010. Her second book The Birthday Cake Book, was published in 2011
