If you have always wanted to make exquisite sugar flowers for cakes but been daunted by the complexity of the shapes and techniques involved, then this is the book for you. Here, expert sugar flower maker Alison Procter demonstrates how to create an array of beautiful life-like flowers using simplified techniques and the minimum of cutters, so that even beginners can achieve superb results right from the start. From wild daisies, bluebells and snowdrops to sophisticated clematis, carnations and roses -- 25 varieties in all -- each flower has clear step-by-step instructions and colour photographs that explain and show exactly how to create it. Details are also given about all the equipment and basic techniques you will need, plus full instructions for making foliage to complement the flowers.
