If you saw the December 2007 issue of delicious. magazine, you will have feasted your eyes upon Eric Lanlard's sweet creations, and hopefully had a go at making them yourself.
If not, you now have the opportunity to recreate Eric's stunning cakes: from the hand-painted Toile de Jouy wedding cake to his 1920's-inspired American retro cake; if ever there was a time to impress your guests it will be with one of these highly original designs.
And it's not as hard as it looks either – if you follow the step-by-step decorating instructions. There's also a section explaining which tools and equipment you need, and how to bake and assemble the cakes.
Eric has made cakes for A-listers such as Madonna and Elizabeth Hurley, so there's no better man to trust if you want to make something truly stunning. See some of Eric's recipes online
