About the Author

Valeri Valeriano and Christina Ong left the Philippines in 2008 to work in the UK in the medical field. After learning how to make cupcake bouquets in 2011 they launched their business Queen of Hearts Couture Cakes and have since won several top awards for their buttercream designs. Now they are internationally renowned and teach classes in Europe, Asia and the US.


"The Contemporary Buttercream Bible is an absolute game changer in the industry of cake art. I've never seen techniques and talent presented in such a way as to be concurrently hugely aspirational yet completely approachable. I look forward to learning all the skills that I, as an artist in rolled fondant, have only the most rudimentary grasp of. Not since Cakewalk by Margaret Braun have I been this excited about a cake book. Bravo!" - Chef Duff Goldman, Ace of Cakes "If you love buttercream you'll adore this book. Lots of fascinating techniques to try and lovely ideas to develop. Thank you Valeri and Christina for generously sharing your buttercream secrets." - Lindy Smith, author of The Contemporary Cake Decorating Bible "There are numerous new and fresh techniques in the book ... but the main take-away for me was that buttercream designs are limited only by one's imagination. The authors' examples are inspirational and a demonstration of what is possible if you 'put your whole heart into it.' Overall, Valeriano and Ong have created a book full of inspiration and encouragement that re-energizes the use of buttercream in modern cake design." Sonya Hong, American Cake Decorating magazine
