I ordered this book expecting to be shown how to model cats which isn't unreasonable in view of the title. I was especially interested in moulding the face. Unfortunately a mould is required - SK Great Impressions Cat Head mould. This is only mentioned on page 10 of the book.
You do need an SK mould which is easy to use to create fantastic cat figures (I am not an experienced cake decorator) it is however well worth buying the SK moulds, the mexican modelling paste and the book, I have tried several of the designs plus my own for celebration cakes.
