This delightful book shows you how to make beautifully realistic sugarcraft flowers for cake decorations. There are detailed instructions on how to make 25 flowers, with the emphasis firmly on the simple garden flowers that keen sugarcrafters want to create, from delicate flowers such as freesia, pansy and daisy to favourites such as rose and carnation and bold flowers like sunflower and poppy. Each project has a full materials and tools list, detailed instructions and step-by-step photographs, as well as a photograph of the finished flowers simply displayed. There is a useful section at the back of the book that shows you how the different types of flowers can be arranged into sprays and arrangements to suit any occasion. In addition, there is a section at the beginning of the book which gives information about all the tools and materials as well as essential techniques such as making pulled flowers, making leaves, veining, frilling and glazing. This book shows you how to make beautiful life-like flowers using simple techniques while stunning step-by-step photographs show you how each flower is created.
