Whether you’re a keen cake maker or a beginner baker, there’s nothing more fun than transforming a piece of modelling paste into your own sugar characters. In her frst book, Making Sugar Models, award-winning cake maker Vicky Teather will teach you how to make over 50 imaginative and adorable characters, from a forest fairy and Christmas elves to friendly dinosaurs and a band of party puppies. Each tutorial includes easy-to-follow instructions and helpful step-by-step photographs so you can be confident you’re on the right track from start to finish.
Once you’ve made your models, follow the steps to make a complementary cake or mix-and-match them to create your own custom designs. The breakdown of essential recipes, tools and techniques at the beginning of the book contains everything you need to get started. There’s an explanation of the different types of sugarpaste, a handy colour chart and a guide to the basic shapes you’ll be using to build your characters.
From her love of a Dresden tool to her (unfounded) fear of airbrushes, the book is sprinkled with Vicky’s honest anecdotes, tips and tricks so you can benefit from her years of cake-making experience. Once you’ve got the basic techniques down, Vicky encourages you to use your newfound skills to create your own custom figurines because whatever the occasion, there’s nothing more personal than a handmade sugar model
