(Book Review) Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas

My copy of Sweet Designs by Amy Atlas arrived this week and I love it! The book provides a detailed look at 14 dessert tables including recipes, craft ideas and styling tips. Throughout the book Amy gives  ways to adapt each of the tables to suit different themes/ colours, as well as lots of tips and styling advice. The book has over 100 recipes for cakes, cookies, pies, brownies, mousse, truffles, popsicles, ice cream bars, and drinks. You also get access to patterns and templates via her website. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in dessert tables and event styling.
Here are some of my favourite Amy Atlas Dessert tables
