Autographed Book Plate Giveaway

Autographed Book Plate Giveaway

UPDATE: This giveaway is over! Thank you to everyone who sent in their receipt!

I am BEYOND excited! Do you know why? Well if you have pre-ordered my upcoming book, Artisan Cake Company’s Visual Guide To Cake Decorating, you’re getting excited too! The book is set to release November 1st and we’re officially in giveaway mode!

If you haven’t pre-ordered the book yet, it’s not too late to reserve your copy! Here are a BUNCH of places you can purchase the book!

Amazon –
Barnes & Noble –
IndieBound – –

Interested in an e-book? We’ve got that too! (coming soon)

Over the next few weeks leading up to the book’s release, I’ll be doing a TON of giveaways, sneak peaks, contests and other fun stuff in honor of the book that almost killed me to produce (ok not literally but it was the most work I have ever put into anything in my whole life, including the birth of my first born!)

I am so extremely proud of the content in this book! I wanted to move away from the typical “project based decorating book” and really focus on giving you, the reader, skills that can be applied to many different types of cake projects.

The most requested chapter in my book is all about structure! How to create different types, what materials to use, when and how to use them and lot’s of tips along the way to help you trouble-shoot.

Have you been dying to take the leap into cake sculpting? Are you terrified of everything that might go wrong? No worries! I’ve got some great projects in this book that will help you get through it (just breathe) including recipes, easy, practical techniques and lots and lots of photos to guide you!

One of the chapters I am most proud of is the design chapter. Yes you heard that right, a whole chapter dedicated to actually designing better cakes. How to choose colors, how to plan out a balanced, cohesive and beautiful design of your own. No more staring at a blank page wondering, where do I even start! This chapter gives you the tools and the know-how to start creating your own amazing designs or how to trouble-shoot a design that isn’t working out.

Looking for some basics? I haven’t forgotten you! The book will also have tons of my favorite recipes, sugar flower tutorials, topper tutorials and valuable tips from some of the best pros in the industry!

I don’t want to give away ALL the secrets! I can tell you that I’ve got more fun posts headed your way, more giveaways and lots of fun things before the book goes live so stay tuned!

OK enough rambling! Onto our FIRST GIVEAWAY!
