Cool Layer Cakes by: Ceri Olofson {Written by Cassie}




One of my passions is making cakes for my kid’s birthdays. Since I have three birthdays in the fall, this is the perfect book for me to make three unique cakes.
Today, I want to share a cake book with beautiful photographed cakes, a list of supplies you will need, along with frosting and cake recipes.


About: 
Cool layer cakes contain 50 exciting celebration cake projects that can be created by bakers of any skill level. Master cake designer Ceri Olofson provides everything you need to know to begin creating these stunning designs, from basic tools and core recipes to insider tricks for creating a professional finish.

About the Author
Ceri Olofson is a master cake designer and owner of acclaimed London-based cake studio Olofson Design. A leader in her field, Ceri has developed a reputation for exquisitely designed wedding cakes. Her creations are regularly featured in the international press, including Brides and Wedding Cake: A Design Source magazine.

About the publisher:
Founded in 1941, Barron’s Educational Series, Inc. rapidly became America’s leading publisher of test preparation manuals and school directories. Among the most widely recognized of Barron’s many titles in these areas are its SAT and ACT test prep books, its Regents Exams books, and its Profiles of American Colleges. In recent years, Barron’s has expanded into many other publishing fields, introducing extensive lines of children’s books, foreign language learning books, pet care manuals, gift books, cookbooks, crafts and hobbies books, parenting advice books, and art instruction books.

In my opinion: 
I believe that first impressions count. When I first looked at the cover, I was drawn to the beautiful rainbow colors of the cake. I immediately opened up the book to see what the rest of the book was like. Because I am a visual learner, I was happy to see that there were step by step visual instructions on how to frost a cake, essential supplies to buy, templates at the end of the book, and cake and frosting recipes. I will definitely be looking for other books this author has written. I recommend this book for anyone who loves to bake or who is interested in learning how to make beautiful cakes.


Disclaimer: I received one or more of the products or services for free in the hope that I would mention them on my blog. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
