This must-have book for anyone interested in cookie decorating, The Complete Photo Guide to Cookie Decorating, truly is complete. The book is filled with almost 200 pages and over 550 photographs of cookie decorating instruction. Author Autumn Carpenter takes you by the hand and walks you through every component of cookie decorating, from the tools for cookie decorating, recipes, how to plan and design your cookies, to icing consistencies, piping royal icing and working with fondant. You’ll learn how to create effects such as marbling and brush embroidery, how to make shimmery cookies, how to use stencils and edible frosting sheets, and even how to package and present cookies. No detail is forgotten, and every technique possible is covered. A tiny sampling of the cookies you can create (before, that is, taking what you learn and making your own, which this book very much sets you up to do): Ducks, butterflies, flowers and wedding cakes, an entire farm of animals, cookies for your princess, sea creatures and cupcakes, pretty birds and hot lips, scary skulls and a cheery Santa.
