 Most of us have fond memories of food from our childhood. Whether it was our mom's homemade lasagna or a memorable birthday cake, food has a way of transporting us back to the past. Homaru Cantu

{HISTORY}

Even though this vintage cake decorating book was first published in 1979, its roots go way back to Chicago in the 1920's. That's the decade when the Wilton School of Cake Decorating was born with a mission to teach pastry chefs and home bakers the beautiful art of confectionary design. Still operating today, the school was an immediate success, churning out talented cake decorators from around the world. In addition to the school, the Wilton family also expanded their business by adding a retail cake decorating products sector which sold tools, forms, fabrics and embellishments for unique cake designs. Bakery books, how-to manuals and decorating diy guides soon followed, which brings us to this book Discover the Fun of Cake Decorating edited by Eugene and Marilynn Sullivan for Wilton Enterprises. 

First published in 1979, this is the January 1991 edition. Although its the ninth printing it still retains the photography and cake styles of the 1970s, which is fun as far as design. As a complete step-by-step manual, it teaches novice bakers the art of cake decorating gradually as each chapter slowly increases in difficulty. By the end of the book, you'll have enough knowledge and skill to decorate a tiered wedding cake - the ultimate project for any baker!

{WHY IT IS ESPECIALLY MARVELOUS}

Because the only thing needed to be an excellent cake decorator is "a love of color and beauty and the desire to create a truly original work of art" (that's the Wilton way!). Oh and also lots of practice. 

Whether you are an experienced pastry artist or a first-time baker, this book will not only teach you but also inspire you to look at cake decorating in a whole new way - one that is fun, whimsical and adventurous.
