A New Look at the Crooked Cake
Captivate any audience with classic and modern crooked cakes. Defy gravity and decorate with dynamic quilling techniques to deliver cakes that never fall flat.

Discover a new angle on decorating as you make imaginative crooked cakes with the design's legendary originator, Colette Peters. Learn about Colette's creative process before you go step by step through carving, covering and stacking the tiers for a classic crooked cake. Then, bring a modern crooked cake to life as Colette guides you through creating and securely assembling tiers of all different shapes and sizes. Plus, Colette will teach you her techniques for embossing and decorating your cake with gum paste vines, leaves, loopy flowers, rolled roses and more. Create gravity-defying designs decorated with vibrant embellishments and bring an air of amazement to any celebration.
