This book contains instructions for forty eyecatching and adorable projects for cake decorating, using sugarpaste and a few simple tools and techniques. We learn about the simple shapes that are the basis for the projects, and the few basic tools that are needed. Then it is straight on to making elephants, lilies, fairies, pelicans and many more. The constituent parts of the animals are shown with the step by step instructions, and annotated for clarity, then each finished animal is pictured in all its splendour. Whether the recipient is an animal, bird or fairy lover, they will be thrilled to see any of these appealing creatures on top of a celebratory cake - and who can resist a tiny sugar fairy on an angel cake?
