Mich Turner, whose critically acclaimed catering business designed wedding cakes for Madonna, Pierce Brosnan, Paul McCartney, and Catherine Zeta-Jones, has created a step-by-step guide to creating spectacular special occasion cakes that delight the senses and are exceptionally impressive.
There is no better guide to the art of cake decoration than Mich Turner, who outlines her basic philosophy that a special occasion cake should reflect four key variables-the personalities in attendance, the venue, the time of year, and the number of guests. This authoritative primer demonstrates how to design and decorate the perfect cake and guides the reader through the many layers of decision-making necessary to achieve crowd-stopping results. The one common denominator of every one of Mich Turner's designs is that it is guaranteed to add that "wow" factor to any celebration.
Spectacular Cakes is a versatile sourcebook of cake decoration styles and techniques from the traditional to the cutting edge. It also includes cake recipes and a portfolio of incredible designs that can be copied step-by-step or adapted to suit any formal or informal event. Spectacular Cakes will make your next celebration an unforgettable event.
Mich Turner trained as a food scientist and after enrolling on a cake design course, found she had a flair for decorating cakes in her own unique style. Mich worked as a buyer at Harvey Nichols prior to founding Little Venice Cake Company in 1999, and together with her team has designed and produced numerous special cakes for private and corporate occasions, including BAFTA and Madam Tussauds, and her designs have been in great demand with celebrities such as Madonna, Pierce Brosnan, Sir Paul McCartney, Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, Emma Thompson, Elvis Costello and international royalty. LVCC acts as a consultant to M&S and supply some of the UK's most prestigious hotels with special occasion cakes, including The Ritz, The Dorchester and Claridges, and she designs an annual collection of wedding cakes exclusively for Harrods. Mich's cake designs are regularly featured on TV and in Vogue, Harpers and Queens, You and Your Wedding, Brides, the Sunday Times and BBC Good Food magazine.
