Fabric Effects in Sugar : First Steps and Basic Skills

Fabric Effects in Sugar Book One introduced the idea of emulating fabric effects in sugar when it was first published in 1993 and started a huge trend in cake decorating that continues unabated today.

This landmark book in cake decorating has been out of print for many years and I am pleased to be able to re-publish this revised edition for a new audience to enjoy.

Learn how to produce a range of basic fabric effects such as the drape, hangings or tails, bows, rosettes, ribbon cockade, borders and several varieties of flowers and leaves, including a fabric effect rose.

All of these effects provide a simple and quick alternative to the usual methods of cake decorating and yet at the same time produce a stylish and attractive finish. The ideas in the book can be adapted and used in conjunction with all other cake decorating techniques.

  • Ten distinctive and colourful cakes
  • Black and white diagrams
  • Step by step instructions
  • Useful section on how to paint cakes

Further books exploring new Fabric Effects in Sugar ideas and other cake books from Gary Chapman are forthcoming.
