Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes founders Valeri and Christina have created another jaw-droppingly beautiful book, Buttercream Flowers for all Seasons, that has our mouths watering.
This is the fourth book from the talented duo, each book getting more and more delicious. The pages are full of delectable cakes and buttercream that will leave your mouth watering and wanting to make your own.
The book starts by going over some buttercream basics which is really handy if you haven’t read any of their books before or are new to the technique. Valeri and Christina have provided their basic buttercream recipe as well as buttercream alternatives such as swiss meringue buttercream and bean paste buttercream for a vegan option.
How gorgeous do those cakes look? As the title suggests, the book showcases different cakes that can be made for each season of the year. You can browse through pretty pastels in the spring, bright vibrant flowers in the summer, rich warm flowers in the autumn and festive makes for the winter.
For these flowers, colour is everything, so there is a really great section on how to colour your buttercream as well as achieving those harder colours such as brown, red and black.
They make it look so easy don’t they. With their book you will be able to achieve beautiful cakes like this. Each of the 16 design concepts is presented as a spectacular tiered cake, a more accessible single tier version and a beginner-friendly batch of cupcakes, making over 50 projects in total.
