Product description

This quirky collection of creative cake designs for men and boys showcases the unique but easily achievable sugar modelling skills of internationally renowned cake designer and sugercrafter Maisie Parrish. Each of these cake projects has true character and charm and is ideal for a celebration with a difference. The fondant cake designs are simply a delight and each feature character cake toppers on a different popular theme. The characters include a crooning Teddy Boy, a hapless handyman, a multitasking househusband, a sexy santa-girl, plus there are cake designs for sports and hobbies galore, from football and fishing to gardening and gaming, giving you designs for every occasion for all the men and boys in your life. 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.
