You may know Amanda from the blog I Am Baker and as the most creative cake decorator extraordinaire. For years now, she’s been drawing us in on her blog with unique cake decorating techniques and enticing recipes. Well, now, she has a book and it’s going to knock  your socks off!

Amanda’s new book,  Surprise-Inside Cakes: Amazing Cakes for Every Occasion…with a little something extra inside <– you can buy it there <–, was officially released today, and it is so beautiful. Each colorful page is full of unique surprise inside cakes, including detailed instructions and beautiful photos to guide even the most novice of bakers through the process of creating a surprise-inside cake. Being the lover of stories that I am, I especially like how Amanda has added a little personal story to each cake, giving us all a glimpse into her life.


Amanda-Book-4I think Meg really wants me to make Amanda’s Paw Print Cake, don’t you? Amanda’s instructions are so well detailed, I think even someone not creative like me can do it!

    Wow! I love the idea of a cake with a surprise inside. I would make one for my sixteen year old, Jamie, because he has been working so hard for his GCSEs and I want him to know how proud I am.
