If you are a decorator of any skill level looking to improve or perfect your royal icing and border work, then this an award-winning Border Inspiration book is an absolute essential.
Learn everything you need to know about creating the most decadent borders with the Border Inspirations book, brought to you by Katy Sue and royal icing master Ceri Griffiths.
The book is set out into several chapters covering all aspects of border work, from C Scrolls and scoops to ropes and swags, showing you not only the techniques needed to achieve these designs, but also providing the inspiration and ideas to get you started on your own fabulous cake designs.
The Border Inspirations book is extremely comprehensive, taking you from the absolute basics, to a high professional standard throughout the course of the book.
Beginning with shells and blades, the book will show you how simple designs such as these can be brought together to create some of the finest borders you are ever likely to see. It will also take you through how to pipe variations on these well-known designs, such as Question Mark Shells and Herringbone Shells for more advanced decorators.
It then moves onto to scrolls, both C Scrolls and S Scrolls, again not only providing the basics, but also variations on classic designs for those looking to try out more difficult techniques.
The book then covers swags and scoops, combing them with other designs learned earlier in the book to create the most exquisite borders.
It also has advice on royal iced flowers and hearts to be used both in borders or as additional flourishes and decorations for other parts of your cake.
Overall this 64 page, full colour, paperback book is as inspirational and essential to a cake artist as its name suggests.
