I nearly didn't buy this book due to the previous review, but I am so glad I did. It is the only book I could find just for people/figures and it has an excellent range to choose from, and more importantly it goes through each stage with excellent illustrations to accompany.
I personally like the faces, but it is easy enough to copy the bodies and create your own face. So much cheaper than paying for a sugar craft course. If like me you are really into celebration cakes, then buy this book, you won't be disappointed. A hardback of this quality and with so much excellent information which you can adapt for your own requirements at this price is excellent! Top marks to both the illustrator and author, I will be able to create lots of figures using the ideas here and many more besides.

This book clearly demonstrates in step by step pictures how to make different types of figures. From babies to policemen! It's going to be one of my best reference books.

What a fantastic little book. I have used this for many cake toppers. I have a little experience of modelling but this book is so easy to follow that it is my go-to book for inspiration. My confidence has increased leaps and bounds since I bought this book. The characters can easily be adapted to your own theme and there are some excellent tips. I would recommend this book to all users.

Good clear instructions on how to make these people. You will need some basic skills to be able to make them up and a number of coloured icings. They are great for a show piece special occasion cake.

I make cakes decorated with fondant as a hobby. This book is an excellent help particularly with the figures proportions.

I adore this book and the way she dresses her figures its fun easy to follow and i have used it on loads of cakes getting great reactions by everyone.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves craft work, cake making and pottery for fun.
Its a great read fun and exciting and you can learn how to make your own individual characters if you dont want to copy the authers work .
This book doesnt stay on the shelf as its always in use since the day i purchased it.
Im sooo pleased to be the owner of this great easy to follow book. Thankyou!
