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

5.0 out of 5 stars Very beautiful Designs 12 Dec 2007
I love this boo and I am not a novice in cake decorating. There are 15 cake design with very easy to follow instructions. Not a lot of tools needed to create any of the designs. Apart from the specific instructions given for the designs themselves there is a sections in which the author explains how you can make lots of facial expressions so you can then create your own designs if you are creative enough. Weight details are given so each caracter comes perfectly proportioned. Although the book is about cake decoration be advised that no instruction is given for the actual cake making (recepies etc..) which means that the book concentrate on the actual character making techniques, fair enough considering that this is what the book is about and anyway you can get free instruction on basic cake making over the internet or on any other ordinary cake book. Shame this book is not very readily available because out of print, hope it will get reprinted soon for all the fellow sugarcrafters who don't own a copy and would like to.

Even if you are a complete beginner like me, one look at the fantastic cover and a flick through the beautiful coloured pages and you will be hooked. For me the cakes in this book were simply gorgeous unlike other books I have bought, I simply wanted to make everyone!! There are easy step by step instructions and even a section on character expression. Cakes for every occassion. Fantastic, a book I know will give me and my family a lot of joy. This book stands out from all the rest it is really "Sugar Dough Magic".
