Cake Decorating for Beginners is the perfect book for anyone wanting to learn to bake and decorate cakes! It includes super easy step-by-step photos that will guide you through cake decorating techniques, like smoothing or texturing frosting, handling a pastry bag, piping rosettes, creating a drip effect, hand lettering, and much more.
I'm so incredibly excited to share with you news that I've kept secret for months!! This past summer, I wrote a cake decorating book:
Cake Decorating for Beginners
And if you preorder the book through my link, you'll get a FREE exclusive printable bundle from me as a bonus! Find all the details at the bottom!
I've always said writing a book was on my bucket list. But I honestly never really thought or believed it would happen. But now it has. And I could not be more thrilled and excited to share it with you!!
Sorry (not sorry) for all the exclamation (!!!) points… I'm just bouncing off the walls!!!!
I started this blog way back in 2012 because I wanted to help cake decorators learn to decorate cake. I wanted to share recipes and tutorials and information that (at the time) were hard to find online when I was making my first wedding cake a couple of years earlier.
To my great surprise, the blog became very popular and I found myself doing a job that didn't feel like a job at all. Every day I get to talk about, write about and work on CAKE.
It's a sweet life, for sure.
From way back then, when I couldn't find what I needed until now, writing a book for beginners... I feel like I've come full circle.
So, you may be wondering... what's in the book?
Let me give you a little preview... Cake Decorating for Beginners includes:
- Cake walk-through--Get advice on cake prep, the cake decorating supplies you'll need, mixing custom colors, and troubleshooting for so many common cake issues.
- Frosted tips--Frost like a pro with recipes for buttercream, chocolate ganache, fondant, and easy-to-follow directions on how to apply them.
- Cherry on top--Show off your cake decorating skills with 10 scrumptious, stunning cakes--each with easy-to-follow instructions and colorful photos.
Other than sharing all of the basics that you'll need to know, I can't wait for you to see the TEN cake tutorials!
I give step-by-step photo tutorials for cakes that YOU can make! They're simple enough for a beginner but elegant enough that everyone will think you're a pro! They're just so pretty and easy and doable for beginners!

Hello Rose, I have just read this book and I have been doing some decorating. I have ran into a problem that I hope you can help with. I mostly use single use pipping bags but I like the feel of the silicone bags. The silicone bags are bulging though. The icing is very thin but not thin enough to just ooze out. If I squeeze lightly towards the bottom, it comes out real fast, but if i squeeze in the middle or towards the top it bulges. What am I doing wrong? The bag is new.
Thank you in advance.
Hey there! Thank you so much for purchasing my book. So I only tried the silicone bags once and was not impressed with them. If you want reusable bags, I highly recommend the Wilton Featherweight bags. They do not bulge at all and last for a long, long time. I have had some last as long as 20 years. These are the ones I have: https://amzn.to/3lEeHNi.
