OK, this might seem like a strange book for someone like me, however having recently witnessed what happens when a grown man is left with royal icing and asked to make an octopus and starfish (yes Dad, I saw what you made for your Grandson's cake) when the person viewing it couldn't tell what it was (it was underwater themed and the Octopi left some people thinking it was some sort of weird spider) thought that it was about time to learn how to do it properly, so next year, people won't be scared by the cake.

This book by Maisie brings a whole set of characters to life, whether you want to make an artist, a racing car or even a pirate with a treasure chest (amongst a host of others) in easy to manage steps from colouring the icing through to basic shapes and then moulding them, allowing the reader to create something spectacular with just a little time. It's a great way to help you make something really special and whilst there is an outlay on some tools, if you look after then, they'll last years.

All round a cracking book that will give you idea's that when you're comfortable with, that you can then modify to create different themes for those special people in your life. Great stuff.

Lots of ideas for models that are fun and of varying complexity. I find these are suitable for the whole age spectrum of my grandchildren. Making the models keeps them entertained, making stuff with the bits of sugarpaste left over from my cake making that would end up going hard and in the bin. A bit of cmc to make the paste of modelling consistency and they can make something to add to a cupcake or just take home on a board. If I had been able to do this at an early age my modelling skills would be much better than they are.

I chose this rating after having read a few of this kind and found it's simple to use even for a novice

Sound advice on starting character modelling.

Good ideas that can be tweaked to suit your own themes.

This os not my first Masie Parrish book

Bit mixed on my opinion on this book. Thought there may have been some different ideas in the book but there wasn't for me. Still haven't been urged to make any of these characters.
