SHARON WEE'S BOOKS
Books by Sharon WeeSharon 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.

We’ve created a cake recipe calculator for you to use. The calculator will allow you to adjust the cake and icing recipes from the books for any tin size!
Any mistakes found in the printing of the books is listed below.
- Playful Party Cakes – Page 145, Almond and Honey Cake – Step 2 should say ‘almond meal’ instead of ‘self-raising flour’.
- Adorable Cakes For All Occasions – Page 153, Hazelnut and Orange Cake – This cake has caused some challenges for a few people so we have uploaded a PDF with some additional hints and tips for it (some of these tips are useful for any recipe!). Download it here.
Playful Party Cakes has some supplementary video tutorials to help explain certain steps. You can view them below, or use this Youtube playlist that I've created for you.
