Cookbooks

Marie is an award winning cake artist based in Minneapolis. Known as much for her delicious and diverse flavor menu as for her sugar artistry, Marie’s work has graced magazines and blogs around the world.

As a trained mixologist, Marie has combined her bartending knowledge with her aptitudes for baking and experimentation, culminating in her first cookbook – “The Spirited Baker” – for beginner and experienced home cooks alike.

Having baked for brides, celebrities, Gordon Ramsay, and even Klingons, Marie is proud to share her wealth of cake knowledge with beginner and experienced home bakers alike. Her second cookbook, “Evil Cake Overlord” is replete with ‘ridiculously delicious’ cake, frosting, and filling recipes, as well as plenty of information on cake assembly, handling, etc. Also includes Marie’s delicious fondant recipe, guaranteed to win over even the most anti-fondant consumers!

Spandex Simplified Manuals

Prior to her cake career, Marie Porter had an illustrious career in spandex costuming. Now, you can learn all of her secrets to spandex design and sewing! “Synchro Swimwear”, “Sewing for Skaters” and “Sewing for Gymnasts” are the first three titles in Marie’s new Spandex Simplified series, and are all about designing and creating spectacular and durable competitive sports costuming.

These books are appropriate for beginner to advanced levels of sewing ability, and is written from both a designer, and former “performance” athlete’s point of view. They teach everything from the basics, to tricks of the trade. The “Spandex Simplified” series will prepare the reader to design and make almost any design of competitive synchro suit, skating dress, or gymnastics leotard imaginable. Given the cost of decent competition suits, these manuals each pay for themselves with the savings from just one project!

The books are written completely in laymans’ terms and carefully explained, step by step. Only basic sewing knowledge and talent is required. Learn everything from measuring, to easily creating ornate applique designs, to embellishing the finished suit in one book!
