A real fun book from Paula who has been creative with her approach to sporting figures and produced some simple by very imaginative figures.-Cake Craft & Decoration Brilliant for Olympics parties and for those who like to make their cakes extra special. A whole range of sports are celebrated here, from tennis to windsurfing. With step-by-step instructions, each part is annotated and then beautifully photographed. The designs will also appeal to makers of polymer clay models.-Craft Focus In this Olympic year why not decorate your cakes with a sporting theme? Here are twenty sports represented by delightful sugar paste figures all doing what they do best --or in some cases worst! I like the humor in this book, as the figures are not always shown winning but having fun and having a go; ideal for amateurs. This is not a book where each page shows an alternative idea, but each page instead has detailed instructions (rather small print), a photo of the finished piece and a very helpful photographed illustration of all the components, laid out and numbered. The numbers do not seem to relate to anything on the page, but it is handy to be able to lay them all out and count them, or maybe make notes. The finished pieces show helpfully how to display them, with blue piping gel "water", a horse's jump made from Shredded Wheat and a row of chocolate fingers, brown sugar "sand" etc. Many sports are represented, from team games like football, baseball, basketball, beach volleyball, etc., to sports like gymnastics, synchronized swimming, golf, tennis, judo, windsurfing etc. The figures are not hard to make -- anybody who played with plasticine as a child should already know the basics -- and the look is very effective. A good book for any sugarcrafter but simple enough to appeal to beginners.-Myshelf.com
