The topics include:

Each flower design is explained in a four-page unit, which includes a full-page photograph of the finished bloom. Detailed step-by-step instructions and close-up photographs demonstrate how to make and assemble the components.

The delicate work of decorative flowers is the last and most intimidating frontier of cake decorating. Sugar Flower Skills breaks the complexity into concise units with clear instructions. For novices and skilled decorators alike, the result is a repertoire of stunning realistic blooms for any cake.

About the Author:

Alan Dunn trained as a baker and confectioner but his love of sugarcraft, and of teaching how to do it, formed his career. Alan is the author of 14 sugar craft books that focus on the art of sugar flowers, and he has co-authored three books with sugar crafters Tombi Peck and Tony Warren.

Foreword

My interest in cake decorating and sugarcraft started over 26 years ago, and I have studied almost all aspects of the craft. However, it is the art of making sugar flowers that has fuelled my passion and played the biggest part in my approach to cake decorating.

This book is intended as a guide for both the novice and more experienced sugar-flower maker. The Sugar Flower Directory includes some very quick and simple flowers and fantasy forms, as well as more detailed, lifelike blooms. I have included a selection of flowers to illustrate the various methods and techniques that can be used to create flowers.

This book also shows how to arrange the flowers and create sprays to display in cake design--the combinations and color schemes are only suggestions and this is an area where you can use your own taste and creative flair to make your work unique to you.

Enjoy yourself and happy flower making!
Alan Dunn
