This is a quirky collection of celebration cakes boasting the unique but easily achievable modelling skills of internationally rewned cake designer and sugercrafter Maisie Parrish. Each design has true character and unique charm and is ideal for a celebration with a difference, from a pampered hippo for Mother's Day to cute carol-singing penguins. Each project is accompanied by quick-to-make cupcakes and minicakes to complement the main cake or to make when time is short. With simple sugarcrafting techniques and clear step-by-step photography, designs are ideal for both beginner and intermediate sugarcrafters. Whether you're creating a single animal topper or a whole singing and dancing theme, this is the book to show you how to do it the fun and easy way.
