Description - Fun and Original Children's Cakes by Maisie Parrish

This quirky collection of children's cake designs showcases the unique but easily achievable sugar modelling skills of internationally renowned cake designer and sugercrafter Maisie Parrish. Each of these creative cake designs has true character and charm and is ideal for a child's birthday party with a difference. The book opens with advice on how to make sugarpaste with a quick sugarpaste recipe to save time, or you can use ready-made sugarpaste. There is also full guidance on working with fondant to create modelling paste for sugar modelling, including colouring sugarpaste, painting on sugarpaste and storing sugarpaste. Maisie guides you through all the sugar modelling equipment you need and shows you how to make fondant figures and sugar characters. The recipes section gives you a rich fruit cake recipe and Madeira cake recipe, as well as mini cake and cupcake recipes. All the recipes you need to make the cool cake designs in this book are included, including how to make buttercream, and an edible glue recipe. There is advice and photos to show you how to cover a cake with marzipan, and how to cover cakes and cake boards with sugarpaste, as well as clear photos showing how to stack cakes using dowels. Finally a useful section gives advice on storing cakes, how to cut a cake and transporting a cake. The seven fondant cake designs that follow are simply a delight and each feature character cake toppers on a different popular theme. Choose from musical dragons, farmyard characters, a whimsical fairy, ballerina mice, a spooky witch, Santa's elves and cute kids. Using these designs you can make birthday cake designs as well as cake designs for Halloween, Christmas, christenings and more. Each project is accompanied by quick-to-make cupcakes and mini cakes to complement the main cake or to make when time is short. With simple sugar modelling techniques and clear photographs breaking down each step to its basic parts, Maisie demystifies the art of creating beautiful cakes and makes it all so easy and fun.
