5.0 out of 5 stars Easy and spectacular!, 9 Jan 2012
Many of the designs are both very cute and very easy to do, and the author also gives tips on how to make the shaping even easier if you're not very experienced.
The designs show how to create the figures used and don't require any special equipment; the actual cake design doesn't have to be followed exactly as you can change the number of figures, etc.
Highly recommended for anyone wanting to start with the world of sugarpaste modelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't wait - get it!, 30 Oct 2009
This is the kind of album you can listen to forever. It's dangerous to take on a driving holiday, because you may never get the music out of your head.
The songs are a wonderful mix of Lewis Carroll's sharp wit combined with Mike Batt's musical versatility. I have found Dancing With Disaster is the theme song of many a failed project, too!


The Parafaith War
The Parafaith War
by L. E. Modesitt Jr.
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Fast action and a developing world, 30 Oct 2009
This review is from: The Parafaith War (Paperback)
This is one of modesitt's earlier books, and it shows - the action is fast, with many vignettes, and fewer of the pauses for thought by its main character found in his later books. That said, the grinding repetition of the opening scenes justify the character's later actions, and contribute nicely to his development.
Modesitt's worlds have matured in his later works, but this book shows some of his foundation thinking and provides a nice view of the developing worlds. The story itself is worth reading - and a warning to all who use religion in a jingoistic fashion to proclaim war.
