As most brides know, shopping for wedding cakes can incite sticker shock (“It’s HOW much?). Problem is, making your own cake is no piece of cake. It is, however, a little easier when you’ve got a great guide showing you the way, and that’s why we’re so excited about Annie Dam’s new book Cake Couture.
The Edmonton-based baketress will take you from basic steps that every wannabe-baker needs to know to full elaborate cake projects that you could steal for your own wedding, all with plenty of pictures that will keep you on track (and drooling).
Dam, who perfected her craft in France and Spain, even covers details like transporting your cake (trust us, it’s crucial information if you DIY it).
If nothing else, you can gift the coffee table-worthy Cake Couture book to a friend with baking skills…and try and convince them to take over cake duties. Order it here.
