While cookbooks are often a dime a dozen, beautiful cake-decorating books are rare gems. Thankfully, Satin Ice Artist of Excellence and owner of De la Crème Creative Studio Heidi Moore Holmon brings us her new book The Art of Modern Cake: Cake Decorating Techniques for the Contemporary Baker (Yellow Pear Press, 2022). With gorgeous photography and step-by-step instructions, she walks the reader through modern cake-decorating techniques to create gorgeous works of art. It features edible sugar flowers, piping, coloring techniques like marbling fondant, and yes, recipes! Naturally, there are cake, buttercream and ganache recipes, but it also includes fun dessert table ideas like donuts. If you want to decorate single and multi-tier cakes, definitely check out this book. It doubles as a perfect coffee table book for bakers!
