This book is full of some very realistic looking flowers. It can be alittle difficult to understand how to make some of the flowers at first because to make some I think you need some experience, but having said that once you have a basic understanding, if you reread how to make some of the flowers, it makes alot more sence.Some of the cutters I have found are quite difficult to find, but once you have found them, Alison makes about ten different flowers from the same design. At the end of the book you can see some of her cakes she has made from the flowers and are so realistic and beautiful. At first I thought I would never understand how to make the flowers because they looked complicated but as I said, if you reread, the instructions really are very helpful.

This book plunges into the world of sculpting and painting life-like sugar paste flowers with the quality and dexterity of the finest in porcelain figurine sculptures and painting. Many flowers illustrated in the book are indistinguishable from the real plant and take the visual experience of cake decorating to the level of a fusion between botanical illustrator x pastry chef!
Much practice will be necessary to achieve the results proposed in the book, but the inspiration of this book has few peers. The steps to realizing these stunning works of sugar paste sculpture are clearly illustrated, with many cutter and template forms provided in the back of the book and a section called "cakes" that are more like real sections of an English garden in full bloom on "I cannot eat this, it's too beautiful" cakes, as well as botanical studies realized in fondant, sponge and sugar paste. Even if you never make a cake from the many suggestions and illustrations given in this book, you will and your coffee table book readers be inspired and enchanted!

I've just started this craft and need all the help I can get. This book covers most of the flowers I want to make. The photographs are clear as are the instructions - perfect for a beginner teaching herself!

I had seen this book for sale many times on ebay mistakingly thinking that if there were so many for sale that maybe it wasn't very good. I finally ordered it and was glad to find I had been wrong this is a great book with clear detailed instructions and pictures of various sugar flowers using a small group of cutters which if you don't already have are easily obtainable. There is also a wonderful cake section demonstrating how best to show off these flowers. I absolutely loved this book and thought it was one of the best sugar flower books I had purchased in a long time.

I'm fairly new to sugarcraft and am at the stage where I'm just about confident enough to decorate cakes for other peoples special occasions. The flowers in this book are lovely without being too complicated. Each project is beautifully photographed and clearly explained. There are also hints on colouring and display. As long as you have the basic shaping tools you should be able to produce lovely flowers. I'm self taught and if I can do it......

My book was delivered very promptly and arrived in excellent condition.

Very good pictures and very clear on how to do, I got this as my daughter requested help making some flowers, but it is over 17 years since I last made any and wanted to refresh what little skills I had. Book is both good for the expert and those of us who are returning as things have changed from 17 years ago as well as a beginner.
