You've seen the cover of our book,  EXTREME CAKEOVERS: Make Showstopping Desserts from Store-Bought Ingredients, which is being released on July 9, 2013 by Clarkson Potter (Random House). You may have read the synopsis and know that our book teaches anyone - regardless of having cake making or baking experience - how to transform everyday store-bought cakes into stunning showpieces using candies, cookies, and frosting. You don't even have to turn on the oven to make the cakes in the book (unless you want to)! Starting today, we are very excited to offer you an early peek at what's inside EXTREME CAKEOVERS at our brand new website,

On, we're revealing photos for the first time on the internet of some amazing finished cakes you'll learn to make! There are also details about the book, information on how to purchase it, and links to connect with us on social media., which was beautifully designed by Dana at The Wonder Forest, is still in its early stages because the book won't be in stores until Summer. We will add new information as we have it so feel free to check in regularly for updates!

Rick and I have been working on EXTREME CAKEOVERS since 2011 and it has been an incredible journey that is indescribable! In those two years, we have juggled running cakelava in Hawaii, fulfilling cake orders, and traveling around the world for Rick's classes, all while working on parts of the book. We are so excited, we can barely contain ourselves and counting the days until the book's release! For those of you who can't wait to get your hands on EXTREME CAKEOVERS, it is now available for pre-order in paperback and e-book versions at, Barnes & Noble, Indiebound, your favorite bookstore, or directly through Random House.

Thank you to everyone who has given us support as we've worked on EXTREME CAKEOVERS, the biggest cake project of our lives!
