Possibly the most clear, informative and best illustrated book on sugarcraft modelling. Perfect balance of instructions, tips and high-quality photographs including templates. Carlos Lischetti's distinctive style creates elegant, fun and dramatic looking models for cake toppers which will astound your recipients with the depth of the imaginative beauty and innovation, and yet astound you how simple some of them really are.

Includes some basics such as an essential equipment guide, tutor tips in baking and covering a cake with board for the optimum foundation for his modelling projects for celebration cakes and how to use supports and dummy cakes. Leaves plenty of room for the advanced sugarcrafter to pick up perfecting tips and new ideas too.

I defy anyone not to get goosebumps from the wonder of his creations: Animation in Sugar moves the average sugar model into a totally new dimension. 14 varied projects with standing, sitting, fine or stocky models gives you plenty of things to copy or to earn from in your own creations. I haven't been able to put it down this morning since the post man arrived and can't wait to follow his first model with my own twist!

About the Author

Carlos grew up in Rosario, Argentina and began cake decorating in 1990. He has always been self-motivated and self-taught to try and learn as much as he could from the world´s top sugarcrafters. His ever growing curiosity led him to take a few courses in Buenos Aires, Paris and London. He then got the chance to teach everything he had learned over those years in several schools in Argentina and Europe. He is currently working as a contributor to Cakes & Sugarcraft Magazine and he just published his first book: Animation in Sugar
