About the Author:

Helen Penman has been making fondant cakes for more than 15 years. She designs cakes for Cakes and Sugarcraft magazine and runs her own cake-decorating business, Too Nice to Slice.

Review:

This book comes at a perfect time.... The majority of the book focuses on creating 100 distinct cake toppers or decorative pieces made solely from fondant icing. These range from brides and grooms to cats, sharks, clowns, tractors, and musical notes. Each topper is outlined over one to three pages and is identified as easy, intermediate, or advanced. The spiral binding allows the book to lie open flat for ease of use, and the color pictures and step-by-step instructions make the projects unintimidating.
