Product Description

The secrets to awe-inspiring cake decorations, written by "master bakers" --Martha Stewart Weddings

Their specialty cakes have astounded and drawn raves from such clients as Tiffany, Cartier, Bloomingdale's, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Vogue, and their wedding cakes have graced the pages of Bride's Little Book of Cakes and Toasts, Bride's Magazine, and Martha Stewart's Weddings. Scott Woolley and Michael Farace are, quite simply, the masters of the stunning-to-behold yet easy-to-learn art of sugar paste flowers, used as both cake decorations and freestanding ornaments.

In their popular classes in New York City, they have taught absolute beginners how to make strikingly realistic flowers in one session, with a technique that is unique and easy to learn. Now they have assembled fifteen years' worth of know-how into the most complete construction and idea book on sugar paste flowers and ornaments. The book includes step-by-step instructions on how to make dozens of varieties of flowers, detailed information on the tools one needs to get started, delicious cake recipes, and a profusion of inspirational photographs, showing finished cakes and centerpieces that will delight both professionals and at-home cake decorators, inspiring them to achieve both simple and simply spectacular sugar art creations.
