Simply Perfect Party Cakes for Kids - by Zoe Clark

The saying goes: "never judge a book by it's cover" - but please just take a look at THIS cover and tell me you don't just want to sit down with a cup of tea and enjoy each and every page inside? And that's exactly what I did!

Zoe's fresh, clean style comes through on each and every page.  Her attention to detail from making tiny toys, to cute surfboard cupcake toppers, to camouflage cake batter (one of my favourites!) is impeccable. Even the table of contents has different font styles coordinating with the cake design!  

Inside you'll find there's a design for every occasion and for every age group, Zoe has covered all the bases. Need a cake for a baby shower? - no problem.  A fancy sweet table spread for a little girl's 1st birthday? Zoe has it covered.  Ideas for that adventurous boy? It's all inside!  Zoe has covered it all from cakes to cookies to cupcakes to mini cakes.  All coordinated, all styled, all perfect for any party.

Not only will you find numerous contemporary cake designs - 12 to be exact - you also get simple easy to follow step-by-step instructions with pictures on how to achieve all of those designs.  Including coordinating cupcake and cookie ideas which lend perfectly for a stylized sweet table scape. Don't have the tools? No problem, there's a resource guide inside.  Can't find that cookie cutter shape? Not to worry, templates for everything are included in the back.  Need that perfect recipe for a carved cake? It can be found inside.

Simply Perfect Party Cakes for Kids is, well, simply perfect! I would happily place it along side many of my "must have" cake decorating books as not only does it contain inspiration & great ideas, but techniques and easy to follow steps & recipes which make a good book into a great one!

Thank you Zoe for allowing me to have a sneak peek into your fanciful world of cake!
