Making a cake and decorating it beautifully for a special occasion deserves a round of applause, and with this comprehensive guide to sugarcraft, the plaudits will keep on coming. Divided into two parts, each one comprises a set of 20 lessons. Book One teaches how to make perfect cakes, icings and frostings, as well as master ribbonwork, frills, collars, lettering, modelling and piped decorations. It is the ideal foundation for people who have never decorated a cake before . and an excellent refresher for those who already have some basic skills. Book Two builds on that foundation, teaching the intricate skills of tube and brush embroidery, lace, figure modelling, sugar-flower sprays, bas relief, pastillage and filigree. Packed with ideas, each one illustrated with colour photographs and accompanied by step-by-step instructions, this inspirational guide is written by six internationally acclaimed authors, each one chosen for their expertise in a particular field of sugarcraft.
