I found this title on pre-order by chance as I was browsing the cake decorating section and I received it a couple of days ago after some delay in publishing. I'm so happy Helen Penman put this book together as it really looks like it will be an invaluable guide book to modelling for cake decorating. I have a couple of shorter titles on making various figures but I was quite disappointed with them as the figures were quite simple and unattractive but in this book the figures are detailed and would look amazing on a cake. i particularly love the guide to dressing people figures, especially the Indian bride and groom! now i just time to start practicing!

This book is amazing and great value. I bought it as I'm a novice cake decorator and like to make my cake figurines by hand. I was so surprised by the voulume of information in this book.
It's lie a binder on the inside, so no information lost folding over pages. There is information of equipment, cake recipes etc etc etc. There is almost a quarter of the book full of great tips and information before getting to the beautiful figures shown on the front of the book. Buy this book, you will not regret it.

I have received started a cake decorating class which I am really enjoying and this has spurred me on to purchase several books to enhance my learning and one of the those was 100 Fondant Models for Cake Decorators by Helen Penman. I really want to learn modelling and this is not something we specifically cover on my class.

It really is surprising just how many different models are included in this book; Elephant, Lion, Cat, Frog, Mouse, Sheep, Penguin, Santa to name just a few as well as a number of accessories to go with each model such as Bullrushes, Lilly and Lily Pads for the Frog or Cauldron, Potions and Spell books for the Witch.

I really like the thought that has gone into including accessories for the models, as I think this makes the models much more useable and is extremely useful when planning a cake as you can build a scene rather than just sticking a single model on top. It is also a great starting point for encouraging you to think about what other details to include.

There is a handy guide at the beginning with small thumbnail pictures of the models included with the page numbers so that you can quickly locate the model (s) that you wish to make. This is especially useful when you have opened the book to have a play without a clear idea of what you want to make or an occasion in mind.

For each model there are clear pictures showing the finished model and then a break down of the pieces and where they fit. You are told the colours required and a how much of each colour is required in both grams and ounces as well as the materials and tools required. For each part of the model you are also advised the weight of sugarpaste required.

A very good book with plenty of photos and full instructions on how to make each model. Ideal for beginners and with some ideas for the more experienced sugarcrafter.
The models are broken down in to seperate bits and the weight of paste needed is shown for each stage. This is often the hardest part for beginners and will be invaluable for them.
There are lots of ideas fo childrens cakes and for special occasion ones like Christmas, halloween, weddings etc.
The book has a spiral binding so opens out flat for ease of use.There are also sections on tools, basic tecniques, recipes for cakes and how to design your cake.
All in all a great value book.

This is so handy to ensure that you keep to size and scale for the model and especially useful for beginners like myself.
