The book that I am reading this week is titled Painting on Sugar by Lesley Herbert and Jean Hodgkinson. This book is part of the sugarcraft skills series. The technique level is advanced.
About the book
The Sugarcraft skills Series is a practical new approach to cake decorating. The series is colour-coded into three bands of ability for easy recognition and includes books for beginners, intermediate and advanced cake decorators.
With full colour photographs of cake and step by step details of specific techniques, the books can be built up into a comprehensive reference on the subject.
Ideal for newcomers to cake decorating and those wishing to learn from home, the books are based on City and Guilds of London Institute Syllabus also making them suitable for those following sugarcraft courses.
This title explores a variety of colouring techniques used in sugarcraft, including cocoa painting, brush embroidery, gel painting, airbrushing, stencilling and direct painting. Various mediums are employed to create a broad range of effects on cake for all occasions.
