Book Launch: Moon Juice by Kate Wakeling (The Emma Press)

Creating edible versions of existing designs is one of my absolute favourite things, so I was SO happy when Kate Wakeling asked me to make a cake to celebrate the launch of her new book, Moon Juice, a collection of poetry for children.  The book, published by The Emma Press, is full of wonderfully eccentric characters and intriguing scenarios, brought to life through Kate's fantastic words combined with the beautiful illustrations by Elina Braslina, an award-winning Latvian illustrator.

I chose to recreate the book's front cover as a large lemon cake, using piped buttercream details to capture the texture of Elina's pencil drawings. 

The launch party was a huge success and I was so happy to be involved.  Read more about Moon Juice and buy a copy directly from The Emma Press.
