Book Description

Renowned sugarcrafter, Frances McNaughton, the author of several best-selling books on sugar fairies, creates a magical world in sugarcraft to decorate cakes for fairy lovers everywhere. She begins by revealing the tools and readily available materials she uses and goes on to show techniques such as modelling all the basic shapes required, sculpting with tools, dusting or painting to add colour and texturing with royal icing. There are then ten step by step projects showing how to make beautiful fairies in fairyland scenes. Some are funny or whimsical such as Buxom Fairy and Fairy's Bathtime, others have a fashionable twist like Steampunk Fairy and Gothic Fairy; some create a world of folklore such as the Flower Fairy's Baby and My Friend the Bird, and others are perfect for special occasions: Be My Wife, Christmas Tree Fairy and again, Flower Fairy's Baby. Many, like Peacock Fairy, are stunningly beautiful. Frances McNaughton is building on the success of her best-selling Twenty to Make: Sugar Fairies with these more developed designs, including scenes for the fairies to star in.

When it comes to sugarcraft, Frances McNaughton is top of the list. In this book she has created 10 step by step projects to help you create fairies to adorn cakes. The techniques are clearly explained and templates are provided where needed. Moulds are used. The instructions are very detailed. Apart from Be My Wife shown on the front cover, which made me think of Tinkerbell, there are nine more themed fairies including a Gothic one (her wings look a little bat-like). The Peacock design is very beautiful. This will delight anyone who wants to create characters, because once you understand the technique, you can create your own characters.
