Product description

Sugarcraft really does have a dark side, and here are twenty easy-to-make, fun projects to prove it. Frances McNaughton has delved into the darker recesses of her imagination and produced twenty positively horrid projects that will appeal to children as well as adults. There's a scary ghost, an evil witch, a creepy hand emerging from a coffin, skulls, skeletons, vampires, bats and more - perfect for Halloween or for any sort of celebration cake with a scary theme. Each project shows the various components of the model and explains, through clear, step-by-step instructions, how to put it together. A list of all the materials and equipment you need is also provided, along with a stylish photograph of the finished item in all its scary splendour. At the beginning of the book, some general guidance on sugarcrafting is provided, making this an ideal book for novice as well as more experienced cake decorators.

Review quote

In this book you will find a variety of wonderful and easy to follow and make sugar scaries, perfect for cake decorating and for Halloween. I would recommend this book for both adults and children because of the easy to follow instructions andthe clarity the author/creator has used. She has also incorporated ideas on how to use the different sugar scaries. For younger children (8 years and under) I would sugges tsome adult assistance. I like how the author has also given recipes on how to make some ingredients used to create the decorations, such as the fondant or modelling paste and as an extra, given instructions on how to use the equipment and edibles. she has also included pictures and measurements for that extra bit of assistance. This book is packed full of wacky and fun ideas and detail, not only in creativity and instructions but the decorations themselves because she has made them so perfectly in colour and design. I think in order to improve this book the author/creator should have used a hint of colour in a few of the designs just co complemenet and improve on all the black that is used (although she does state that you can change the colours to suit you). Other than that small detail, I can find no other flaws in this book and would definitely recommend this book for people of all ages, whether you are a beginner at cake decorating or not. I am 12 years old and decorate cakes myself as a hobby and would definitely use these sugar scaries in the future. This is a fantastic book full of learning opportunities and ways to make cake decorating fun and exciting. (Courtney Voitrekovsky)-NZ Cake Decorators Guild Ghouls, ghosties and things that go bump in the night, all made in sugar by talented Frances in this super value for money book with 20 projects. A gruesome gargoyle, Dracula and a humorous Frankie Stein monster all show their frightening funny faces within these pages.-Cake Craft & Decoration
