Adorable Cakes for All Occasions by Sharon Wee review and Win a signed copy

When I heard that Sharon Wee of Sharon Wee Creations was releasing a book on cake decorating I had a feeling I would like it and of course once it arrived I was not disappointed.

In case your not in the cake world, I'll just give you a heads up, Sharon is well known for her beautiful and often whimsically adorable cake designs, cake decorating demonstrations and courses.

Adorable Cakes for All Occasions delivers all that you would expect with a lovely variety of cakes ranging from simple to a little bit more complex, with detailed instructions which make creating your own cake totally achievable.

In particular, I loved the sweet Zebra cake with cute floral wreath and monogram, but there are a number of cakes that are pure Sharon Wee with a delightful Super Miss Sunshine cake with a city skyline, sun a balancing superhero and the Fly Away Bunny Cake with a sweet stripe cake and bunny holding a balloon.

You'll love learning the little tricks of the trade that Sharon shares as she shows how to make these cakes.

Adorable Cakes for All Occasions contains a fantastic basics section on covering cakes, cake structure, a number of recipes and of course the actual cake designs with easy to follow picture instructions (see example below).

Plus there are a number of smaller cake and treat recipe and instructions included as well

One of the things I really liked about the book, well apart from that super cute Zebra cake, was how many of the creations did not require the purchase of special equipment. Sharon shows how to decorate many of the cakes using basic cake decorating tools which will probably have many of us (and our credit cards) sighing in relief.

The book can be purchased on line from Sharon Wee Creations in hard copy or PDF form CLICK HERE.
