More About the Author

"Maisie Parrish is often told she has magic hands, and when she begins to work something magical does indeed happen"
quoted by her publisher.
Her modelling career begin in 1989 when she experimented with salt dough. Being completely self taught, she created a range of characters, which at the time were quite unique. Her first order was from a buyer from a large London store. This was how her company Maisie Dough began. She subsequently wrote two doughcraft titles A Doughcraft Workstation and A Doughcraft Funstation which are now out of print.

She was soon asked to contribute to a sugarcraft magazine and it was then that she first started to work in sugar, and had to teach herself how to do three dimensional figures, and how to cover a cake. Well the rest is history and an international career continued. This year sees the completion of her 12th published title for David and Charles "Maisie Parrish's Naughty Cakes." The title does suggest it is naughty, but also very nice. She is pushing the boundaries a little with this one, as there are lots of naked bodies, limbs, and facial expressions to create, as well as standing figures. As ever everthing has the Maisielicious touch, with lots of humour, so look forward to seeing this one in March 2014.

Maisie's work is easily recognisable, and very much copied, and her many fans travel across the globe to be taught by her at Maisie's Sugarcraft Academy in Stoke on Trent. They are a truly international affair, and she continues to create and entertain her students as she generously shares her unique modelling skills. You can find out much more about her and her class on her lively website www.maisieparrish.com

My first even novelty cake decorating book was by Maisie Parrish and what is great about her books is she always makes it easy to understand, regardless of your skill level. So many hints & tips, even for a seasoned veteran cake-maker :)
The step-by-step guide, accompanied by pictures make it easy to create wonderful looking cakes and the techniques you gain are easily applied to other projects when you feel confident to try out your own ideas.

Arrived promptly. Some good ideas for men's cakes, which are usually difficult to think about. Can also adapt some of the designs.

Another great book full of character! My favourite cake is a kitchen in chaos including a man with a baby over his shoulder and a very fraught expression on his face, it's perfect! Great pictures and instructions as usual with Maisie's books :)

Haven't had a chance to try this out as of yet, but with fathers day coming up soon, I'm sure i'll find something out of it to make. Had a quick look through it, simple step by step instructions, so I'd say it's especially good for beginners!

I received the book yesterday and spent a great deal of time reading through it, there is so much scope to adapt what is shown, a really good book both to copy the cakes but as reference for your own designs, very easy to follow.

just arrived today so not used it yet, but it seems to cover everything in making the cake, even the weights of paste required for the figures and all the little items to finish the cake. Looks just the busness.
