Of all the decisions that go into planning a wedding, choosing the cake may be the sweetest. Much more than dessert, this beloved wedding symbol should be as special as the bride and groom themselves. Whether you imagine a majestic cake blooming with fresh flowers, a pristine fondant-covered masterpiece, or a homespun take on strawberry shortcake- or even if you don’t know where to begin- Martha Stewart’s Wedding Cakes will provide you with more than 100 delicious and inspiring ideas for timeless and beautiful confections that are perfect for every style of wedding.

Not just visually inspiring, these pages are filled with information you won’t find anywhere else. Martha Stewart and Wendy Kromer, the master baker and decorator who has been creating cakes for Martha Stewart Weddings for more than a decade, guide you through everything you need to consider when selecting a cake- and even how to bake and decorate one yourself. Novice and experienced bakers alike will find recipes and insiders’ techniques to create truly memorable wedding cakes.

You will learn:
Where to begin- how to decide what style and flavors are right for you, taking into account the season, location, and theme of the event

Buttercream or fondant? Ganache or meringue? Useful charts explain the delicious materials bakers use, so you can choose the ones that suit your taste and style

Creative ways to display your cake so it takes center stage at the reception

I just couldn't wait to get this book! If you love to create cakes, and not just bake them, this will feed your appetite for cake baking and decorating, and you will place this alongside your other prized tomes of cake education. It's a wonderful journey of the wedding cake, aka "a good thing". If you purchased Martha's "WEDDINGS" book, this is the expanded and transformed chapter on cakes into this book.

Martha has outdone herself once more in her passion to give us every possible idea, and instruction, to create the wedding cake of our dreams for the day of our dreams. And to join her in this quest is Wendy Kromer, master baker, who worked for Martha for many years, on both Martha's former TV show and for Martha Stewarts "Weddings" magazine; she now owns and operates her own bakery.

While this book was made to help engaged couples decide on what type of cake they would like for their wedding, it also gives instructions should you wish to bake your own wedding cake. For those established bakers and caterers that are looking for ideas and concepts, this will be certainly be a well-referenced tool. The "Album of Cakes" section offers 111 official photographs of cakes, but if you add all photo's of cakes from other parts of this book, you will have well over 135 delectable wedding delights in which to choose.

Martha and Wendy do not hold back on any instruction and it begins with the incredible photography of each cake, frosting, filling, and detail of these stunning cakes. These cakes come from both Martha's former TV show, Martha's "Weddings" magazines, as well as some new ones from collaboration with other cake artists.

A hallmark of the Martha brand is that she is quite detailed in everything that she wishes to teach, and that is never more seen than here. There are some techniques that will require a professional to do such as the "bubbles" or "pulled sugar ribbon" for some of these cakes, and rightfully, she has not included those instructions in this book because they are labor and equipment intensive, as well as for safety reasons (you are working with intense heat with one, and need specific equipment for the other, let alone the need for specific training).

If at all possible, try to obtain of copy of Martha's VHS tape called "Cake Decorating". It is the visual form of instruction on making some fabulous cakes, from simple 2-layer party cakes to actually assembling a 4-tier wedding cake. They were segments taken from her former TV show in which she, and guests, demonstrated this art of cake decorating. I am hoping that she will consider bringing that out again in DVD form. It is an excellent teaching tool and my copy has been well-worn out!

This is a very big book, coffee table size, so along with excellent photography, the photos are large and show detail such as brush strokes of hand-painted fondant or delicate designs of rubber stamps used to imprint fondant. The use of gumpaste flowers and marzipan helps to complete certain dimensional and visual appearances desired.

The journey begins:

MARTHA AND WENDY'S INTRODUCTION

CHOOSING YOUR CAKE:

I realize that I am a Martha-groupie but even so, just perusing through this book, a novice can see that every aspect of wedding cake (or any party cake creation) has been thoughtfully considered and explained. You will be placing this along side a very few select cake books that are as complete, well-presented, and detailed as this one. Thank you Martha and Wendy!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great creative guide 18 février 2008
Par Happy & Retired - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat authentifié par Amazon
As a caterer, I found this book to be a good guide for those who create cakes for special occasions. Many of the cakes in this book are ones that have previously been in "Martha Stewart's Weddings" magazine, and I have made several of them over the years, but it is nice to have the collection all in one source. For the inexperienced, some of the instructions may seem a bit vague, but that is the martha Stewart way, as mostly she assumes that everyone knows how to do the basics. If you've never done this type of baking/creating before, this book is not for you. I do recommend it for those who do this professionally or as an advanced hobby.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Decorating Resource 20 janvier 2008
Par Cookbook Gal - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I cannot add much to Toni "the bookworm's review." The book is gorgeous -coffee table quality. It is loaded with full color photographs, including numerous examples of different piping patterns. The decorating style is very Martha Stewart: classically elegant. The book does not provide pictures of whimsical cakes - there are other books on the market for that.

While I did not buy the book for cake recipes (so I can't judge the quality and flavor of the ones provided), I did buy the book to complement a wedding cake decorating class that I am taking. If you are a baker who is very interested in cake decorating, or need instruction on how to prepare large, multi-layered cakes, "Wedding Cakes" is very helpful. If you are willing to put the considerable amount of time needed to perfect these techniques, (and believe me, it takes a lot of practice), this book is a wonderful resource. You will, however, have to be patient; your cakes will not look like Martha's the first dozen times you try!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intermediate Cake Decorators 8 février 2008
Par V. Jones - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Im an intermediate cake decorator. I bought this book for inspiration and hoping for a few tips here and there. This is a great book. There are lots of really nice pictures, there are quite a few recipes and also quite a few "how to's". If you are a beginner and are looking for a book to learn from, this is probably not the book for you, as it's not very instructional in my opinion. The authors do not show decorating processes from start to finish but assume you have some previous knowledge. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in it. Also the price on Amazon beats the bookstore price . I almost bought it in a big retail bookstore but decided to look here first. I saved more than $20.00

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Martha Stewart's Wedding Cakes...Awesome! 15 septembre 2008
Par R. Reuter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I purchased this book because I was interested in learning how to make wedding cakes. My first, which wasn't even a wedding cake, it was my neice's 3rd birthday cake, came out so beautifully. I used the recipes for the Vanilla Bean Sponge Cake and the Chocolate Butter Cake...both were PHENOMENAL and I got rave reviews. I even had three people inquire about me making cakes for them!!! Although some of the recipes may seem a little tedious, I truly believe that it is the small things that you do that make these cakes wonderful. They take time (LOTS of time...mine took about 15 hours from start to finish!!!) and cutting corners does not get you the best results. I have already recommended this book to many people interesetd in learning to bake like myself! BUY IT!!! I know its expensive....but it will last you for a VERY long time!!!
