Book Give-away - "Cake Star" by Jade Lipton

Last year I thoroughly enjoyed watching the popular TV show "New Zealand's Hottest Home Baker". On the show, one of the judges was Australian Jade Lipton, known for creating "CakeStar", a highly successful boutique cake business in Brisbane. Jade's fabulous cakes are highly regarded, Mercedes Benz, Audi and Australian Fashion Week are among her high profile customers, so I'm excited that Jade's publicist has kindly given me a copy of her new book "Cake Star" for one of my lucky readers to receive.

Packed with more than 25 spectacular and show-stopping cakes, cupcakes and cookie designs, all easily achievable by the home baker.  Jade's descriptive instructions and step-by-step photographs teach readers how to create her stylish and skillfully decorated cakes that are sure to impress.

Sneak Peek...

Each of  Jade's beautifully photographed designs vary in skill level teaching you how to achieve the slick, professional, yet fun, look that is Jade's trademark.  "Cake Star", the book, also includes a technique section covering the basic skills and products needed for cake decorating, plus basic cake and cookie recipes. The book is gorgeous and retails for $35.00 through Penguin Books.

  2. Hi Lee - I'd love to win the book for a friend's daughter. It was her birthday last weekend (she turned 15) and her dream job is to be a baker and have her own cake shop.She'd be so inspired!
    Thank you.

  3. Hi Lee, I've just discovered you thanks to your lovely comment on my blog. Count me in. I've just done a cupcake decorating class and loved it. I want more..

  4. Hi, I would so love to win the book. Baking is one of my passion. I would love to learn some tips and tricks on how to make them gorgeous :)

  5. I would love to win this book because baking is what makes me happy, and my family too. My family love to get in from school to have fresh cake to eat. My husband calls it my therapy, it is far cheaper than seeing a shrink! I have over 100 cookery books and most of them are about baking, as a girl can never have too many cakes to try. Decoration is my downfall though and I often turn to my 13 year old daughter to help me out there. This book wouold be a family treat, I could bake the cakes, my daughter could decorate them, and we could all eat them. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    1. Hi Kay, I am pleased to say you are the winner of Cake Star by Jade Lipton, can you please contact me asap so that I can organise posting it out to you.

      Lee ☺
