The Busy Girl’s Guide to Cake Decorating

Well, it’s just a fortnight until my book hits the shops.


So it’s definitely time to fill you in on all the ins and outs of where you can nab a copy, or get me to sign it for you…..

If you’d like a sneaky peek then head to Amazon where you can do the whole ‘look inside’ thingy….

Whilst the cheapest place to buy The Busy Girl’s Guide to Cake Decorating is looking like Amazon I have had several requests from Pink Whiskers  for signed copies.  

You can order your own signed copy directly from me – all the details are here and if you order it now I should be able to get it to you before it hits the shops (perks of being a Pink Whisker!)


I’ll be in the Authors’ Area (another EEEEEEK of terror!) at Cake International – The Cake Decorating and Baking Show at ExCeL London 27-29 April 2012 – you’ll find me in a cloud of icing sugar where I’ll be signing copies and chatting  so if you’re at the show please stop and say hello (and treat yourself to a signed copy too of course!)

Not only that, I’ve got five pairs of tickets to the show to giveaway, valid for any one day. So if you fancy winning yourself a pair of tickets just leave me a comment on this post.  Giveaway closes at 1pm Thursday 19th April 2012, five lucky winners will be chosen at random from all the comments received and will be contacted directly shortly after closing.


Winners of the tickets are:

Debbie – Leigh on Sea

Tori – Essex

Joanne – East Yorkshire

Linda – Oxfordshire

Jocelyn – Newton

Each of the winners has been contacted directly.

See you soon – I’ll be peeking at you from the shelves of your local bookshop!

        That’s a shame 🙁 Saw you at the NEC back end of last year and tried to get to talk to you, but you were being shamelessly hogged by someone else and my 3 year old got bored after standing around for ages… Got a babysitter booked for Telford (thanks Grandma!) and thought I might get lucky… never mind!

You deserve success for all your hard work. Regards Janet, London

    So looking forward to your book, ultimately it is always the presentation that lets my baking down whereas the taste is always there! It’d be great to learn in the step by step Pink Whisk way. And thanks for the tip off for Cake International; never heard of it before but will be looking into going now! All the best for the book x

  96. Nicola Derbyshire says:

Can’t wait to get my hands on a copy to use as inspiration for my 50th birthday cake (although I’ve been claiming 43 for the last few years and don’t intend to change). Do I still count as a busy ‘girl’?! Congratulations and hope it hits the best-seller list! x

  102. Lesley says:

    So looking forward to having a copy of your book Ruth,have seen the preview on Amazon & it looks “caketastic”, love your recipes & clear instructions, used loads of your recipes & they always turn out well.

  103. Jill says:

    Well done, your book looks wonderful, easy to follow and full of those little tips that make your website so user friendly. The Birthday Fairy is attending this week and I have dropped so many unsubtle hints for a copy of your book, that I am sure the boys can’t forget. Good luck in London, you will be wonderful.

  104. Kat says:

    Looking forward to seeing the book – well done!

    I really want to go to the cake show! The last one was too far from London for me.

  111. Alex says:

    Huge Congratulations on your first book – may there be many more :).

    Quick question: as someone who doesn’t like roll-out icings, how much of the book uses piped and runny icings please?!

    • Thank you! Because they’re all quick projects they all use roll out icings for the initial covering and then decoration is done with piped icings etc so it’s probably not going to be any use to you 😉 ! x

  112. Beth Hockley says:

    Dear Ruth, wishing you tonnes and tonnes of luck for the book! It looks great and I cannot wait to get my own copy- whenever I am doing one of your receipes my laptop gets covered in flour, a book will be more easy to clean! 🙂 best wishes, Beth xxxx

  113. Sam Potter says:

    Congratulations on the launch of your book Ruth, it looks awesome. I made your foolproof chocolate orange cake at the weekend, and, just as you said, it makes a greet bargaining tool! Hub put his foot down at me purchasing ‘the fabulous baker brothers’ book, but gave me the green light to order yours. Hoorah! Wishing you oodles of success for the future. Lots of love xxx

  114. Diane Richards says:

    Stopped myself buying TGBBO book yesterday because I really wants yours! Love making your choc chip muffins, always very popular in our house. Good luck xxx

    How exciting, I’ve just taken a sneaky peek on Amazon and it looks like every girl’s must have, I’ll be dropping hints to my hubby for a (signed!) copy very soon, and def be using a few copies as pressies. Should I be lucky enough to win the tickets, I think I’ll take my mother-in-law with me, as she LOVES cake decorating 😉

  116. Lesley Griffiths says:

    Hi Ruth
    Congratulations on the book launch hope you have much success. Thank you for inspiring me to bake more adventurous recipes.

    Hi Ruth, Your blog is fabulous. I love the photos of every stage of baking, it’s so reassuring. I made your chocolate frosted tray bake, it was unbelievably simple but very impressive. After taking it into work I gave you web details to several people who have since become fans too. I can’t wait to see your book & hope that you can compile your other recipes into a follow up book as for those of us without lap tops it would save the dashing to & fro to check the recipe on the computer in the study!! Good luck in all your future ventures. Mandy XX
