Vintage Cakes Made Easy is an accessible guide to using pre-made moulds and mats to apply beautiful details to structured cakes or cupcakes.
Christina Ludlam shows every step of the cake-decorating process from the baking to the application of the icing, and the final touchesmade with the mats or mould that will set your cake apart from the rest. There are several projects to try, ranging from simpler, basic floral designs to elaborate cakes with lace ribbon effect, with motifs to suit all recipients.
The moulds and mats used throughout the book are widely, and readily, available; but Christina Ludlam also shows you how to use everyday objects to add a touch of finesse to your bake, for a vintage, classic look that will be remembered for years to come.
