Create 12 intricately designed, single-tier cakes for a variety of occasions.

One-Tier Party Cakes features 12 elaborate, single-layer cakes for a variety of occasions from birthdays to baby showers, friendship celebrations to Christmas festivities. Lindy Smith demonstrates how to transfer a template to the cake and decorate each of the three-dimensional designs in the book, while providing plenty of inspiration and encouragement for the reader to develop their own designs.

This book features recipes for two delicious layered cakes (Madeira and chocolate fudge); plus the ingredients you need to make successful cake coverings and fillings including sugarpaste (fondant), flower paste, modelling chocolate, ganache and royal icing.

It also includes new and popular cake techniques such as achieving sharp edges, working with modelling chocolate, airbrushing, cocoa butter painting and mastering double-height cakes.
