Really great book suitable for all skill levels.packed with ideas that could be adapted to any requirements with a little imagination. Well worth having to hand When cake decorating* Samantha Haggett *
I got this book hoping that I could improve on my last year's Penquin debacle on the Christmas cake which made everyone laugh but that was not the idea. The book contains a fantastic range of subjects to make and they all look easy. It explains about sugar paste, fondant, flower and modelling paste and therefore tells me where I went wrong before, so I am off to get some gum tragacanth or gum powder. They also show you the tools you might need.
The illustrations are clear and concise with instructions for modelling and putting together the pieces in easy stages.
I am sure that I could even make some off the decorations with the grandchildren as it looks that easy.
From the ideas in the book I am confident I could make all 100 decorations and with that base at my finger tips make many more decorations, even a collection of birds!
WOW I am loving this book. Very inspirational with a 100 designs that even the most basic cake decorator (like me) can make. The pictures are clear and goes through the process step by step explaining all the different icing and pastes that can be used. There are many seasonal ideas and I have some great ideas for my Christmas cakes this year. This is a book that is certainly worth investing in if you wish to make your own sugar decorations* Andrea Tinkler *
This book Is perfect for anyone wanting to start making sugar decorations. I love baking but I'm not very good at decorating cakes. After receiving my book I easily made a penguin and a dog. It's step by step guide shows you how to make each individual item and then place them together. There are many brilliant designs in here. It's well illustrated and worded which helped when I was making.

My first impression of this wonderful book is that it is so beautifully illustrated with clear step by step instructions on how to make and model your sugar decorations. I was very impressed with how the book details quite clearly on sugar making. There are so many wonderful creations for you to make, in particular i love the 'Owl' decorations aswell as the 'Wizard' although the other 98 are just as impressive. I shall look forward to practising my beginer level creations for my next bake which will be my Daughter's 'Owl' themed birthday cake i intend to make. All in all a very lovely book that i am pleased to add to my collection, aswell as a fabulous helping hand for anyone that enjoys baking. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to family and friends.* Tracey Anderson *
Being a sugar-decoration-making virgin I did wonder how useful this book would me - whilst not exactly an idiot's guide, it was certainly very clear with easy to follow-steps for each item. The photography is lovely, very bright and eye-catching, and helpful to refer to and check your sugar decoration looks how it should! Recommended for beginners and for more experienced sugar crafters!* Laura Pritchard *
This is a fantastic book! Wonderful, easy to follow instructions that even a sugar novice could handle. There are so many ideas for different occasions, such as Halloween and Christmas. The pictures are lovely and bold and it also gives you an idea of what tools and material that you will need...perfect for an amateur or a professional. I can tell that i'm going to have lots of fun with this. 100% would recommend!* Stacey Sagoo *
Fans of Search Press' Twenty to Make series won't want to miss their bumper offering 100 Little Sugar Decorations to Make. This diverse collection of sugar models features everything from a handsome groom to a gruesome gargoyle. There is also a plethora of animals including a dachshund, a penguin and even a koala bear. The instructions are broken down into simple steps with photos of the component parts to make recreating the figures a doddle. Some, like the brides and grooms, are more complex, whilst many of the animals are simple enough to attempt with young children.* Cakes & Sugarcraft *
This book is huge, containing 100 simple and easy to follow projects. A great resource for beginner cake decorators and simple enough for older children too. The projects cover a varied range of seasons/occasions, so lots of inspiration. I particularly love the Frankie Stein and Reindeer models! Will be giving these a whirl when I do my Halloween and Christmas bakes this year.
The only negative is that some of the models look a bit too basic and a lot of them use pipe cleaners. I personally prefer my models to be entirely edible. Not too much of an issue though as you just adapt the model to suit. Overall though the book is fun, easy to follow and lots of lovely inspiration that even more seasoned decorators can adapt.
Another great title from Search Press. Full of lovely ideas, with clear easy to follow instructions & beautiful pictures. Ideal for anyone who decorates cakes, regardless of whether you are an amateur or professional. Would certainly recommend this book.* Sally-Anne Walters *
