About this title


This book features 20 adorable figures molded by hand. The medium used can be marzipan, gum paste, fondant, or rolled buttercream icing. Color photos of all finished figures plus black and white photos of the various parts and enlarged finished figures are included. Hand molded figures are ideal for use many times when drawn or piped figures might not be appropriate or even possible. These figures allow the decorator the advantage of being able to create figures for a cake days or even weeks ahead of time to make the best use of time. And if made using rolled buttercream, as in the book, the figures stay pleasantly soft for eating and have a delightful flavor.
