About the project:
After our first book, Layered, we were reunited with the Abrams team for another beautifully illustrated, recipe-tested baking book. Working remotely with our New York City editors and publishing staff, we conceptualized the themes and scope of the book for our target audience of eager home bakers, produced and tested each recipe from scratch, as well as styled and photographed the images from our Vancouver studio.

Following its Spring 2019 release, we toured the west coast as well as New York City, selling out events and cooking classes in Seattle, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, and Vancouver. You can find Icing on the Cake wherever books are sold.
