Amazing, melt in your mouth Swiss-style buttercream is the perfect decorating tool.

And then the fun really starts, with her detailed, step-by-step explanations of icing techniques, decorating fundamentals and, best of all, 50 gorgeous cake decorating projects. Every step is accompanied by a color photo, ensuring that you’ll be able to duplicate Carey’s results and create a sensational cake for any occasion.
