I had a ton of fun writing this book. I was fortunate to have many of my friends and family willing to participate with their kids. I also had all four of my kids in the book. Even though my older boys were nearly 16, they agreed to be part of the book. Dan Brand was once again the photographer and did an amazing job photographing the kids and projects. He has quite a way with kids! Two of his own beautiful girls are in the book. The book contains a couple hundred photos, but Dan took thousands! I’ll post some of my favorites that didn’t make the book soon.
My latest book is now on amazon for preorder! The book title is Decorate Cakes, Cupcakes, and Cookies with Kids. This book was a lot of fun writing and photographing. I had the pleasure of working on kid-friendly projects with my own kids as well as several friends and their kids. Visit Amazon for more information on the book.
I am so excited to release my second book in the Complete Photo guide series! This book is on cookie decorating. I am thrilled with how the book turned out. The book includes lots of step by step instructional photos on all the techniques shown on this blog.
I’m so happy with how my book turned out! I worked with a great publishing company, and Linda, my editor was so easy-going and helpful. I hope more books are to follow! I must give my mom a great big thanks for all her help and support on the book. Also, Bruce, my husband, was my biggest cheerleader (cliché… i know…but true!) He was super supportive of the hours that it took to complete this book. The book can be ordered from Amazon, or from Country Kitchen SweetArt. If ordering from Country Kitchen SweetArt, you receive my fabric texture set free, which is a $14.95 value!
It has been a crazy, busy few months. I have spent the last 8 months working on my new book, coming out February 12, 2012. The book is titled “The Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating”. This book is a comprehensive book that will cover all of the most popular cake decorating techniques, including piped frosting, fondant and hand modeled figures.
Kids are now back to school! This frees my time up to continue working on product development. I have several new texture sets coming out, including designs for cupcakes.
