Sensational Buttercream Decorating

Did you know you can ice delicious cakes using buttercream and also decorate them with exciting 3-dimensional decoration, such as flowers and animals? In Sensational Buttercream Decorating, you can learn to make beautiful cakes out of your own home kitchen. I absolutely love this book!

50 projects for luscious cakes, mini-cakes & cupcakes
and over 600 step-by-step photos

Amazing, melt in your mouth Swiss-style buttercream is the perfect decorating tool. I love how this buttercream is so incredibly smooth, satiny, light, and not overly sweet. You can make it into any color to match anything, including floral bouquets, sports team logos, and invitations. This book is perfect for the upcoming wedding season!

Swiss-style buttercream is the lightest, fluffiest icing, and is the icing of choice for professional and novice bakers alike because its luscious consistency makes it perfect for decorating cakes and cupcakes.


Every delicious cake starts with an easy-to-follow recipe, and Carey provides several failsafe recipes for cakes, cupcakes, icings and fillings, including gluten- free and vegan options. And then the fun really starts, with her detailed, step-by-step explanations of icing techniques, decorating fundamentals and, best of all, 50 gorgeous cake decorating projects. Every step is accompanied by a color photo, ensuring that you’ll be able to duplicate Carey’s results and create a sensational cake for any occasion.


Through years of experience and thousands of cakes decorated, Carey Madden has become one of the foremost experts in the field of buttercream decoration. Carey takes buttercream to an entirely new and exciting level of exquisiteness and has developed an entirely fresh, innovative and technically adept approach to decorating at Two Little Red Hens Bakery in New York City. Her cakes and cupcakes have been featured in Vogue and Mademoiselle and enjoyed by Madonna, Christina Hendricks, Martha Stewart and Anthony Bourdain, among others. Carey resides in NY.
