About "Contemporary Cake Designs: Book One"
Jackie Thompson has just about done it all! Jackie emigrated to Australia in 2004 where she established her own highly successful Contemporary Cakes and Classes cake decorating business in Brisbane. Jackie is a highly qualified chef and pastry chef who has worked in some of the grandest five-star hotels in UK and Europe. She has created cakes and food for Bridget Jones, The Edge of Reason, Finding Neverland, Wimbledon and Iris in the UK, and she is qualified at the highest level of British City and Guilds in Sugar craft in all aspects of cake decorating and flower making.
And now Jackie has harnessed her significant experience and passion for baking and cake decorating into a very practical DIY book for decorators of all levels. Her first book, "Contemporary Cake Designs - Book One", brings together a wealth of knowledge about recipes, baking and twelve (12) distinctly different decorated cake projects that allow the reader to learn how to decorate at their own pace in their own home, with the aid of some amazing photos.
Contemporary Cake Designs - Book One is not just another book about cake decorating. It is a book that is filled with a wealth of wonderful tips on what to do, what not to do, how to do it and why not to do it and it has an amazing 500+ photographs that make this book a pictorial step-by-step guide on some of the intricate techniques of this growing craft.
“I take inspiration from life – from the environment and friends and I use these daily lessons to build ideas for my cakes” Jackie said. “And it is this positive attitude for life that has driven me to try to create a book, a DIY tool, which will take my craft to the masses.”
You can purchase Jackies first book with your class booking. You will receive a signed copy at your class.
