Learn how to perfect the prettiest trend in cake decorating - using edible flowers and herbs to decorate your cakes and bakes - with this impossibly beautiful guide from celebrity baker Juliet Sear, best known for her TV appearances on This Morning. A beautiful yet practical flower directory at the start of the book gives a wealth of examples of edible flowers to try, with fascinating notes on their flavour and creative ideas for their uses. As well as using the fresh flowers, Juliet also shares tried-and-tested methods for storing and preserving the flowers, including pressing, drying and crystallising flowers and petals, and making floral syrups for an extra level of flavour.

A brilliant Baking Basics section then provides the base recipes for simple sponge and buttercream, as well as showing you how to prepare cakes ready for decorating. Within the projects section, follow Juliet step-by-step as she reveals the secrets to creating over 30 botanical cakes that will leave your friends and family in awe. Embrace the joy of a real petal confetti cake, delight in the whimsy of a flowery cupcake wreath, let a floral chocolate bark tingle your tastebuds, swoon at a semi-naked cake, and many more.

Whether you're a seasoned baking enthusiast or a novice, Juliet's passion for her craft will ignite your own creative spark. This delightful guide is not merely a collection of recipes; it's a testament to the artistry and wonder that can be achieved when baking and botanical beauty unite. With every turn of the page, you'll unlock the secrets to infusing your cakes with natural charm, bringing a touch of magic to every bake.

Get ready to dazzle your loved ones and impress your guests with cakes that not only taste heavenly but also look like works of art. Whether you're hosting a celebration or simply seeking to add a touch of beauty to your daily life, this book is your key to creating cakes that embody the essence of nature's elegance and flavour.
