This guide presents traditional and contemporary cake designs to suit every bride and all kinds of weddings. There are over 30 life-like sugar flowers on show. The book includes the latest sugarcraft techniques for making floral sprays and bouquets to adorn wedding cakes and to use as table arrangements. Flowers include lily-of-the-valley, arum lily, gerberas, ranunculus and agapanthus. Each flower has a colour build-up photograph, including its leaves and buds, to show both the experienced and novice sugar-flower maker how to achieve results. Alan Dunn is the author of "Sugar Flowers for all Seasons" and "Wild Flowers".

Alan Dunn is a very talented sugar flower designer and his books are sold around the world. If the reader was expecting fresh flowers then this book was not the one to buy -- that being said it just goes to show that Alan's ability to create stunning lifelike sugar flowers fooled the most discerning critic.
Please remember this designer resides in England and the cake styles are somewhat different to those seen in the United States. His cake design is normal fare in the UK and probably seen at 80% of weddings. The use of rolled fondant in the United States is currently gaining in popularity (evidenced in all of the cake layouts in bridal magazines) and it is my opinion that it will continue to do so in the future.
I love that the flowers are almost life size. This creates a fantastic centrepiece at any wedding or special occasion. It can be seen from a distance and invariably draws people in for a closer look. At a society wedding held in a 5 star hotel, the Head Chef trouped all his staff out for a viewing while I was setting up the cake, after which he gave me the thumbs up sign! What a compliment!! For the price of a book, Alan Dunn continues to teach me the type of technical detail that adds realism to my gumpaste art.
I highly recommend this book, even for beginners. Start right, follow the instructions given carefully, and soon you'll be making beautiful floral bouquets to die for! Thanks Alan!!
