In this stunning new book renowned sugarcrafter Alan Dunn turns his attention to tropical and exotic flowers. Bolder, more stunning and more fantastic, these beautiful flowers are guaranteed to create a real impact whether used on a cake or as a decorative arrangement. The designs include many species of orchid, rhizomes, gingers, heliconias, bird of paradise, anthurium, bougainvillea and many more. A comprehensive introduction covering all the essential information on materials, tools, techniques and basic recipes is followed by a section taking each featured cake in turn. For each cake, easy-to-follow instructions are given on how to construct and build-up individual flowers, foliage and fruit and then how to arrange these individual elements into an arrangement that can be used either to decorate a cake or on its own as a table centrepiece, for example. Finally, instructions are given on how to make each cake and secure the arrangement, if you choose to use it in this way.
