Modelling Figures for Cake Toppers

Julie Rogerson
Celebration cakes are both more personal and more memorable when they include a model of the person (or people) who are the focus of the special day. With over 400 colour photographs, this book discusses the equipment and materials required; it explains the fundamental facial and body proportions for both adult and child figures and shows how to achieve the basic shapes required. Also included is information on obtaining realistic skin tones and step-by-step photographs demonstrate how to create sitting, standing and reclining figures. This new book demonstrates how to create figures for wedding cakes and how to use internal armatures for support. There are numerous ideas for completing the design of the cake and, finally a useful list of suppliers.
