Decorating cakes at home is easy and fun, thanks to Rose Atwater's step-by-step guide. Rose started her "accidental cake business" in late 2009 with more than 20 practice cakes she made in the 6 months leading up to her brother's wedding. By the time he tied the knot in 2010, her prototypes turned into a steady stream of real orders. Over the past 11 years, she has gone on to decorate more than 1,500 cakes for her blog, Rose Bakes. She shows you primer recipes and techniques in this comprehensive book!

You'll learn basic recipes and how to choose the right equipment. After you're comfortable with the basics, you'll master different techniques to decorate cakes for any occasion, from weddings to baby showers to birthdays.
