Sugar Scaries (Twenty to Make) (Paperback)
Sugarcraft really does have a dark side, and here are twenty easy-to-make, fun projects to prove it. Frances McNaughton has delved into the darker recesses of her imagination and produced twenty positively horrid projects that will appeal to children as well as adults. There's a scary ghost, an evil witch, a creepy hand emerging from a coffin, skulls, skeletons, vampires, bats and more - perfect for Halloween or for any sort of celebration cake with a scary theme. Each project shows the various components of the model and explains, through clear, step-by-step instructions, how to put it together. A list of all the materials and equipment you need is also provided, along with a stylish photograph of the finished item in all its scary splendour. At the beginning of the book, some general guidance on sugarcrafting is provided, making this an ideal book for novice as well as more experienced cake decorators.
