Our sugarcraft titles have been amongst the most successful in the 20 to Make series, most notably Sugar Animals and Sugar Flowers. This book focuses entirely on sugar brides and grooms for adorning wedding cakes.

This book is a must have for anyone from professional wedding cake decorators to amateur bakers tasked with making their own wedding cake, or that of a close relative or friend. Packed full of ideas, inspiration and instructions for making the traditional bride and groom that adorns the top of the cake, there are over 10 grooms and their matching brides to choose from, in a range of styles (including a more 'mature' couple!).

A list of materials and tools is provided alongside clear instructions showing you how to personalise hair styles, dress styles, colour and much more to match the happy couple!

The cover of this book is deceiving. I took one look and concluded it was a book for cake decorating for children. The content, however, is far from child material. It offers a comprehensive list of tools and materials required for decorating wedding cakes. There is a recipe for making the basic modelling paste and how to achieve the shapes needed to make the various grooms and brides. What makes this book appealing is that it provides instructions on making brides and grooms from different racial groups, be it black, white, Indian or coloured. It also caters for a Chinese bride and groom and a mature bridal couple, a country couple, blushing bride, romantic groom, sweet bride and a traditional bridal couple. Any cake decorator or a home industries caterer for weddings would do well to have this small but useful book on hand.
