1000 Ideas for decorating Cupcakes, Cookies and Cakes!

As promised in my last blog post I'm attempting to be a regular blogger. So here you go Katja :)
And this news, well, I just have to share with you!!

A while ago I sent in some pictures to Sandra Salamony and Gina Brown for their book "1000 ideas for decorating cupcakes, cookies and cakes" Both of them were really enthousiastic about one of the pictures in particular.

Guess what, five photographes of my cakes are going to be printed in their book! And guess what again...This I'm so proud of :) The first cake in the book you will see, yes really; the FIRST!...,is one of my cakes!!
The photograph of one of my cakes is going to be printed on a full page in colour! On the FIRST PAGE! I'm going to keep it a little secret for now which cake it is. You just have to get the book :)
It's available already for pre-order on Amazon And I'm sure when the book is out, Riejanne from Cook and Book will help us over here in the Netherlands to buy the book. Right Riejanne :) ?

Again, I'm proud :) And above all honoured!! Because although I haven't seen the book yet (I'm so curious) the cover is very promising. Look at all the beautiful colors, designs and decorations. Made by so many talented cake decorators and bakers all over the world.
I love gazing through books, magazines and the internet for inspiration on a new cake. Now it's there in a book, with pictures of my cakes. I'm sorry for this happy, happy post but I can't stop smiling...:)


  1. Yes, of course the book will be available at Cook & Book! It hasn't been released yet, but it's expected early November. I'm really looking forward to it and can't wait to see the pictures of your cakes!


  2. Wat gaaf!! Gefeliciteerd! Ben heel benieuwd hoe het boekje eruit gaat zien.

    Groetjes, Hazel

  3. O nee! Ik heb je laatste bericht een beetje gemist...2 maanden geleden al geplaatst! En sindsdien geen nieuws???
    Dan is het boek vast al te koop. Ga zo wel even bij Bol kijken of de kookboekenwinkel bij mij op de Haarlemmerdijk want deze MOET ik hebben.

    PS waarom is je blog niet in het nederlands? Er is toch een vrij grote markt voor blogs zoals die van jou?

  4. Hi Katja, thanks for your response! Yes, there's lot's of news and I will update my blog as soon as possible. I'm still waiting for a day to have more then 24 hours :) And to answer your question. I write my blog in English because although I love Holland, I also love reading blogs from over "the border." Most of them are in English :)
    I'm thinking of writing in both English and Dutch, what do you all think?
