Sweet Designs Book Cover Reveal & Pre-Order!

Scroll down to see praise for Sweet Designs

Wow, I can’t believe the day has finally come to show you the cover of my book…..

Sweet Designs: Bake It, Craft It, Style It.

I think you all know that this has been a true labor of love to work on this.  It has taken over two years, and this year alone I’ve been consumed with it.  But I’m so proud of it.  More proud than anything I’ve ever done and I’m hoping you will all look at this book as a reference book for baking, crafting, and styling your sweets. You’ll find the book in stores in the cookbook section on April 24th, but you can PRE-ORDER today at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. This hardcover bible is 352 pages long, with over 270 never seen before photos. I had to work really hard to keep the price point low so you would all feel it was a good buy and we were able to do that {the pre-sale price is only $18.46 online!}  This cover is just a tiny peek of part of a table, but you will not believe all of the inspiration jam-packed in this book!

Sweet Designs has 15 chapters filled with more than 100 eye-popping recipes for irresistible treats, plus over 75 easy, affordable DIY craft projects. The chapters feature never-before-seen dessert tables, each inspired by themes my clients most often request: a favorite color, design, flavor, destination, passion, or holiday.

Each chapter explains how to:

Bake It: Recipes for making cakes, cookies, pies, mousse, truffles, popsicles, ice cream bars, drinks, and more.

Craft It: Instructions and directions for templates to create my signature popcorn cups, candy bar wrappers, paper pinwheels and more.

Style It: My designer secrets for arranging sweets, choosing patterns, mixing textures and colors.

Shop It: Pick up sweets from the corner store to pair with home-baked desserts.

Display It: Serving vessels and display touches to create the whole dessert table or make a single treat stand out.

Switch It: Creative ways to swap the desserts, colors, or platters to better suit your needs.

I’d love it if each of you could spread the word about Sweet Designs. I’m a firm believer that word of mouth is the best referral. Please share it with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, through email, or whatever way you can get the word out.

And thank you. In addition to my late beloved father and my family, this book is dedicated to all of you.  You have all inspired me and I can’t tell you how sincerely grateful I am.  That is from the bottom of my heart.

Now, what are you waiting for?  Go ahead and pre-order and spread the word!

All my xoxoxo-Amy

    Congratulations Amy! Pre-order done! Only the waiting left!

  • Sheila Libby

    Hi Amy! I was so excited to find your book again! I was on Facebook one night on my phone and came across it but then the next day when I went to my computer I couldn’t remember where I saw it! It took half the day searching and remembered it was on Scrumptious Swirls page! I would like to Pre-Order but I don’t see a link to that. How do I pre-order?

  • Sheila Libby

    Ok I figured out I just went to Amazon and put your name and the books name and ordered it that way! I am so excited! I have been baking and decorating cakes since 1991. I taught cake dexortaing for 5 yrs back in the 90’s. Lately everyone wants cupcakes! I have a lot of weddings coming up and it would be cool to learn how to “style” everything and give another option for customers
