About the Author

Juliet Sear is a baking expert, cook, food stylist, TV presenter and best selling author. She is the go-to expert for out of the ordinary food challenges and creative food projects. Recently, she worked on the edible animation TV trailer for the new Channel 4 Great British Bake Off series and a number of TV commercials.


"A new kind of professional has now entered the food business: cakeologist. Well known in the U.K. for her fanciful creations with edible blooms (she counts Prince Harry, Kate Moss, and Sir Ian McKellen among her customers), Sear offers 30 wares to U.S. bakers. ... Sear, who's been highlighted in Martha Stewart Weddings, deserves a major 'hip!' for her accomplishments." --Booklist, starred review

"Sear's food styling background is apparent in this beautiful title featuring baked goods adorned with edible flowers and herbs... Home bakers looking to up their decorating game will want to check out this eye-catching cookbook." --Publishers Weekly

"I'm not sure yet which is more impressive, Juliet's decorating skills or how good her cakes taste." --Buddy Valastro of Cake Boss

"Juliet has been my go-to girl for all my celebration cakes for many years. She gets the balance of skill, flavour, texture and decoration just right every time." --Gizzi Erskine

"Juliet knocked up the most mind-blowing birthday cake for my 30th! It wasn't just a cake but a piece of art! Too good to eat? Sure... But we still tucked in and my God it tasted as good as it looked!" --Fearne Cotton

"Some cakes boast that they are 'exceedingly good.' Well, Juliet's cakes look good, taste even better and are among the best I've ever enjoyed eating." --Sir Ian McKellen

"Cake? That's like saying Concorde was a plane! Juliet does delicious art. The most beautiful, yummiest cakes I've ever seen or tasted." --Sir Bob Geldof
