Great Cake Decorating…

rainbow heart cake

This rainbow heart cake is one of my all-time favorite cakes! The original design (above) was created by the fabulous cake designer, Erin of Wild Orchid Baking and you may remember, Kate’s birthday cake last year was totally inspired by it! My local baker, Bonnie from Inspired Sugar did a beautiful job replicating Erin’s design (below).

I am so excited to report that Erin just published a book because she has so many amazing cake designs (be sure to check out her super popular Facebook page!) Her book, Great Cake Decorating is filled with instructions and ideas for fabulous cakes. I have never tried using fondant but with her book, I definitely feel much more equipped to give it a go! Erin starts with the basics and explains all of the best tools to have on hand for making beautiful cakes. She then gets into more specific designs, tips and tricks!

Here are a few of my favorite cakes from the book…




…and one that isn’t in the book, but is part of one her cake decorating classes on Craftsy!
