5.0 out of 5 stars Some interesting new ideas in sugarcraft 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Another good book from Alan Dunn. The introduction, materials, equipment, techniques and recipes are similar to his other books but very useful if this is the first of his books that you have owned.

The flowers shown range from the simple pulled flower to his signature flowers, so there is something for every skill level. He also shows foliage, coral and fantasy buttterflies to complement the flowers.

The section on 'Cakes and Sprays' includes ideas for the ubiquitous cup cake; embossing and cocoa painting; marzipan flowers; 'pressed' sugar flowers; rice paper decorations; stencilling and decorations using paper-punches on finely rolled flowerpaste. Templates are provided at the back of the book together with a list of suppliers. There are some good and innovative ideas.
If you collect Alan Dunn's books then this is a must have.

It's always lovely to see a new book out from Alan Dunn, however this book may have some repeats (since I have all his books!) It's still a great book with a lot of excellent flowers and really good instructions. I'm looking forward to the next book!

4.0 out of 5 stars More flowers than cakes 30 Jun 2013

With Alan Dunn you know it will always be very flower based, if you have his other book this one shows very little different, just variations on a theme. Some stunning crafted flowers though.
