It's no longer enough to produce a homemade cake for your mum's birthday or a pile of freshly baked biscuits for tea: bakers are getting more creative with their endeavours and now they want to make their offerings look as amazing as they taste. Squarely aimed at the home baker, "The Cake Decorating Bible" is the definitive guide to turning your cakes, cupcakes and biscuits into showstoppers.

And alongside all Juliet's invaluable tips, cheats and troubleshooting advice for how to remedy 'cake-tastrophes' the book is packed with step-by-step photography of all the techniques and stunning shots of Juliet's inspiring designs.
