Review

Frances McNaughton's simple fairies are made using sugarpaste, candy sticks and fudge with themes such as blossoms, stars, dancing, Christmas and fairy cakes.-Cakes & Sugarcraft We've all heard of the sugar plum fairy, but here are twenty sugar fairies to enliven your cakes and make your celebration tables look stunning. There are some truly lovely projects in this book, mostly suitable for those fairly new to sugarpaste modelling but with a few slightly more challenging ones as well. There is no recipe for sugarpaste in here, but you can buy it ready made and of course for a longer-lasting fairy there are lots of polymer and air-drying clays around as well. Most occasions are covered, including christening, wedding, Christmas, birthdays and, of course, lots of flower fairies. There is a tooth fairy complete with toothbrush, ballerina fairy, princess fairy and they don't all have to be white either - how about a chocolate fairy?! Photographs of the individual pieces are shown so you know what your shapes should look like prior to assembly, and all the materials and tools needed for each project are listed. As with all these Twenty to Make series books, the instructions are brief, but easy to follow and the finished item gives plenty of clues too as to what goes where and why. If you are a total tyro at sugarcraft you will need to invest in a few tools and cutters before tackling anything but you are warned about this at the beginning, and none of the items listed are too unusual or expensive. All in all, a delightful book that reminded me what fun this craft can be.-Myshelf.com (Reviewed with "Polymer Clay Bears" ISBN 9781844485048) Each book has 20 small, very cute projects on the theme of bears or fairies. Although the bears are made in polymer clay they could easily be made in sugar just like the fiaries. Good value for money.-Cake Craft & Decoration Want to make the absolute cutest cupcakes or cakes for a fairy or woodland themed party? If so, you'll want to check out the book called "20 to Make: Sugar Fairies" by Frances McNaughton (Search Press) If you have ever created anything with clay or sculpey you'll have no problem at all using sugarpaste to create fun cake decor. Frances takes you through the step by step basics to create 20 fantastically adorable little sugar paste fairies that will bring a new dimension to your parties and cake or cupcake decor and will be sure to garner you many compliments. For each of the little fairies featured you'll find the complete tools and supplies list needed as well as detailed instruction and photos for sculpting your own creations to adorn your cakes or cupcakes or other sweet treats. From the Stardust Fairy, to the Dancing Fairy, to the Bathing Fairy(a darling fairy in mob cap and bubble bath), to the Fairy Bride, to the Autumn and Christmas time fairies you'll be sure to find many different themes and designs to decorate with throughout the year and for many special occasions. Once you discover just how easy it is to sculpt with sugarpaste using Nancy's methods you'll have lots of fun coming up with your own combinations. So if a fairy themed party is on your "to do" list of fun activities this Summer do get your hands on this little book. It is a fun resource for planning out your theme. And the neat thing is,not only can the sculpted fairies be created out of sugar paste but you can use these ideas to create them out of sturdy air dry or oven bake clays as well. The possibilities are endless.-stliving.com

It is a nice little book about sugar fairies. Bt in the end do I really need 20 similar models? I mean when you have seen one instruction to fairies you have seen them all...the rest 19 are just variations of the first one and you can do those without the book. Nice ideas but that's it. I pretty much got the same by looking the front cover. Wish I would have saved the money. My kids liked this though so 3 stars for that.

In all honesty this book was a massive disappointment, none of the fairies look particularly impressive or inspiring and most of them are pretty much the same idea regurgitated throughout the book. Most of them look like they were made by a complete beginner I wouldn't recommend this book I'm afraid.

I have recently started to make cakes to sell so I have been buying books with 'different' things. I ordered this one on Sugar Fairies as they would look nice on a little girl's cake. The book is well illustrated and the descriptions are very good. Instructions are straight-forward enough to follow and you could probably adapt any of the fairies for any occasion. I did find, however, that as I went through the book they all became a bit 'samey'. Obviously there are only so many sugar fairies you can make, and to be honest, some of them looked like miniature cakes, instead of cake decorations.

Overall, good value for money and doesn't take up much space in the cupboard!!!

this book is okay for beginners at modelling. I bought it for my 7 year old grandaughter and think it very good for her.

I always wanted to know how to make icing faries. This little book contains all the basics you need. You can easily adapt the ideas in this book to make other faries or little figures. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to make cakes.

A basic book for experienced cake decorators who may want to purchase the author's more detailed and crafted fairy books. However great for those last minute birthday cake requests. Also great fun for children just starting out with sugarcraft (they may require some assistance). Fun book.

I loved this book the minute I opened it and started to look through. It has such delightful fairies and my problem was trying to find different people to make cakes for to show them off

I bought this book just to add to my library of 'how to' books for cakes and cake decorating. I was really impressed with it. Although "Twenty to Make" is a little bit of a stretch - yes, there ARE 20 different fairies to make, BUT - I'd say that several of these could just be described as optional variations to the main few designs.

I like the way the author makes use of different sugarcraft cutters to fashion accessories and clothing for the fairies. I do feel that it should be described as 20 different ways to dress up one basic fairy model. That said, it's a useful little book at a good price with plenty of tips and ideas.
