So hip! So hot! So Excited!
I have been hearing about the upcoming release of this book for over a month now and it definitely lives up to the hype. If you like throwing parties and want to kick it up a notch or 1000 this is definitely the book for you! Not only do you get beautiful pictures but you get templates and recipes so you can copy Amy’s designs exactly or use them to get your own creative juices flowing.
After gaining an international following for creating the very popular dessert table trend, Sweet Stylists and Party Planner Amy Atlas introduces her first book, Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It.
Renowned for bringing fashion and a designer’s flair to the dessert field, Atlas has created a guide that is both cookbook and craft-book in one, the first of its kind. With 15 chapters and over 270 never before seen photos, over 100 recipes, and 75 DIY crafts to give a party that elusive “wow” factor, SWEET DESIGNS lays out—from the candy aisle to the finishing touches—how to “bake it, craft it, and style it” to add designer touches to family celebrations and create a sweets centerpiece for an event people will be talking about for months to come.
Amy shows how to find inspiration for breathtaking dessert tables almost anywhere—whether it’s from Coco Chanel tweed, a checkerboard, a buzzing bee, or a preppy tie. The results are stunning layouts and decadent treats sure to please both children and adults. Readers can tackle an entire spread, or pull out select treats or crafts (like mini-apple pies that work fantastically as a hostess gift or signature candy boxes that add panache to family movie night). Atlas also includes ways to “grow it up” or “grow it down” depending on the formality of the event, a guide to all of her sources, as well as styling tips to get similar results when crunched for time. Sweet Designs is the next best thing to having Amy Atlas in the kitchen with you!
