The Art of Royal Icing  -  Eddie Spence MBE

  • many people feared the art of working in royal icing was in danger of becoming a lost art due to the dominance of sugarpaste over the past couple of decades, but this mammoth hardback (it weighs over 2kg) covers everything you'll ever need to know about this beautiful skill
  • Eddie Spence MBE (we're proud to say he's a Scot) is a world class tutor and renowned expert in royal icing.  Eddie started his apprenticeship at age 14 in Mackie's bakery in Edinburgh and through a lifetime of working in cake decorating, Eddie became tutorial manager at Mary Ford's sugarcraft school - a name we know many of you will remember fondly.  Eddie worked on the Queen's silver jubilee cake and also the wedding cake for Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer
  • we were honoured to meet Eddie at the 2014 Cake Masters Awards (picture 3)
  • Eddie was awarded the MBE in 2000 for his services to the cake decorating industry
  • the scope of this massive book is quite exceptional . . . broadly laid out in 10 step-by-step tutorials which take the reader from simple scrolls, piping flowers and lettering and pressure piping to the more advanced techniques of extension work, run-outs, embroidery and oriental string work
  • the depth of knowledge is breathtaking and sumptuous colour photography throughout make this a seriously good book for those who know their icing, and a perfect gift for any cake decorator
  • please note that due to the size and weight of this book it can only be shipped to UK addresses.
