Amirah Kassem preaches the power of sprinkles in her wildly creative first book. A modern-day Willy Wonka, Kassem reminds readers that joy can be found in creating something delightful and delicious, that baking a cake for someone is the best thing in the world, and that, when it comes to cake decorating, any mistake can be covered in sprinkles (and everyone will love it anyway!).
With twenty-nine different cakes—from unicorn cakes and donut cakes to cakes that look like reindeer, popcorn, spaghetti, and avocado toast—and packed with photographs, illustrations, and infinite ideas, The Power of Sprinkles is a book for bakers and cake decorators at every age and level.

Inspired by the piñatas of her childhood, Amirah Kassem sought to create a cake that burst with sprinkles and candy when she cut into it.
Her food-based installations have been exhibited everywhere from private settings at the Whitney Museum to 64-foot edible hallways at the Brooklyn Museum, while her fondant-free creations have also caught the attention of Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and her Cara the Unicorn creation was named Instagram’s “2017 Trend of the Year.”
She opened her first brick-and-mortar store in 2017, and has appeared on the Food Network, the Rachael Ray Show, and Late Night with Seth Meyers.
