Frances McNaughton shows how to make both cute and realistic sugar birds for cake decorating using sugarpaste and a few simple tools and techniques. First we are introduced to the art of making sugarcraft birds, and then the few basic tools and materials that are required are explained. Then it is straight on to making Macaws, Puffins, Pelicans, Robins, Mallards, Owls and much more. The constituent parts of the birds are shown with the step-by-step instructions, and annotated for clarity, then each finished bird is pictured in all its splendour. Bird lovers will be thrilled to see any of these appealing characters on top of a celebratory cake. The designs will also appeal to makers of polymer clay models.
