Summary "A former ballerina, Maggie Austin turned to baking and sugar art when an injury ended her dancing career—and has since become one of today's most sought-after cake artists. Within these pages, she reveals the methods behind her ethereal designs, with a "theme and variations" organization that shows how mastering any single technique can open the door to endless creativity, no matter how large or small the project. Learn how to shape fondant ribbons, sculpt textured surfaces, paint by hand, make rice-paper leaves and feathers, and more, plus the basics of working with fondant and gum paste and a few of Maggie's favorite recipes to get you started. Each technique is broken down into clear instructions and illustrated with step-by-step photos. Whether a single sugar blossom, a batch of hand-painted cookies, or a multitiered cake festooned with ruffles and blooms, there's inspiration for bakers and crafters of all stripes." -- From back cover.
