About the books
Sharon has self-published two books so far. Her first book
Adorable Cakes for All Occasions was released in 2014, and Playful Party Cakes followed in 2016. Each book contains:
A number of major and minor projects
Beautiful images of the finished cakes
A step by step guide for every project, with at least one image for every step - adding up to hundreds of images
All the basics - ganaching, covering, and stacking cakes
A glossary of terms and tools, some reliable recipes, and templates to speed up the projects
They are available as a traditional paper book, or a more cost effective (and environmentally friendly) PDF version is available for direct download.
To see the full set of project images please visit our store which has our books and many other
cake decorating tutorials. Or continue below for resources and free samples! Free Sample Projects
