Sugar Craft

Sugarcraft is "the art of creating confectionery or cake decorations from sugar paste" and "three-dimensional cake decorating". It has been popular in the UK and USA for many years however there has been a surge in popularity in this art form with the increase in baking, cooking and cake making programs on TV. It covers a huge variety of styles, and includes characters and models made from sugarpaste or fondant, to amazingly lifelike and botanically correct flowers. Fondant is usually used to cover a cake – and can be bought pre-coloured, or can be coloured to exactly the right shade, usually using colour pastes. You can also use dusts in various colours to "paint" or brush colour onto your finished work. Swann-Morton knives are used for cutting moulds used in creating the cake design and also for cutting and shaping the fondant itself.
