Quadrille buys book by Royal cakemaker Cairns
08.04.11 | Katie Allen
Quadrille has acquired a baking title by Fiona Cairns, who is to make the wedding cake for Prince William and Kate Middleton’s impending nuptials.
Editorial director Anne Furniss acquired world rights to The Birthday Cake Book from agent Heather Holden Brown. The title will include 50 recipes from modern styles to "sumptuously old-school" designs.
Furniss said the book has "masses of tempting choices". She added: "We were delighted [when Cairns] was chosen as the designer of William and Kate’s main cake for the royal wedding and we felt it was an obvious choice for her to write the book as she is a veteran for catering for every style and taste."
Quadrille will publish in September as an £18.99 hardback.
Cairns’ first title, Bake & Decorate, was recently released in paperback. As owner of the Fiona Cairns business, she has designed cakes for several celebrities including rock stars Bono and Paul McCartney.
