Paris Cutler’s first book Planet Cake was an incredible success, inviting cake decorators into her studio to show them the skills and tips that anyone can master to create their own stunning cakes. Now Paris turns the spotlight on the perennially popular cupcake, setting a new standard for decoration and appealing to both aspiring sugarcrafters and cake decorators as well as home cooks who are ready to tackle something more challenging than standard icing and frosting.
Planet Cake Cupcakes includes 20 different cupcake designs, a comprehensive basics section with photos and trouble-shooting tips, and features all of the icing and decorating techniques that have made Paris an internationally recognised name in sugarcraft.
The cupcakes range from simple yet stunning designs to more complex ones for all occasions, including birthdays and weddings
