Fun Figures:Cute Character toppers for all occasions
Are you a Fan on my Facebook Page? Well, if you are then you must have seen how excited I was when this book arrived in the mail.
This book is by the lovely Lorraine Mckay. For those of you that don’t know her. Here’s a little brief about who and what.
Lorraine McKay is a self-taught sugar artist from Scotland who turned her sugar art hobby into a thriving business – The Icing on the Cake. She has won several Gold Awards in the Novelty Cake and Wedding Cake categories at the annual Cake Show at the NEC Birmingham, and in 2006 was asked to demonstrate her work at the Edinburgh branch of the British Sugarcraft Guild – she is now an accredited British Sugarcraft Guild demonstrator. Lorraine also writes a blog: Extra Icing on the Cake, and provides a number of popular online tutorials. She began offering workshops at her studio in 2007 and has since gone on to teach classes all over the world.
Well so now you can see why i was excited because I have been really hoping that some day I would have an opportunity to take a class with her. But I’m so far away that though she travels nothing was close enough for me to attend. I had purchased almost all of her online tutorials on her website. But the big announcement of this book was a treat.
So now you can imagine how excited I was to get this book? I knew I had to order it.

And now I want to share with you that this book is nothing less than awesome. It’s everything I was hoping she would share.
The baby topper, the anniversary toppers, Bridal couple and her famous Indian couple.
It’s all there.
She starts the book with a detail of all the necessary things you need. The right amount of sugar paste and the quantity of CMC as well as the equipment and tools you need. So new or advanced you have the right stuff to start with.
Honestly, if you are new I’d say learn the basic first then move on the the individual figures.
Here’s Santa – explained in detail.
Here’s a cute boy for first birthday cake.
Anniversary cake toppers
And here’s my favorite Indian couple and of course there’s the traditional Bridal couple .
Personally I think this book is a must have for anyone who wants to learn figures. I have not seen any other book that shows figures so well in details.
Here’s a link to amazon where you can see some of the pages – using the tool “Look inside” It gives you a little peek into the book so you can view a few pages and get a feel of what the book is really about.
I do hope you enjoy this book and learn from it.
I believe you can order a signed copy of her book as well as some other amazing topper tutorials from her website. Check it our here. Extra Icing on the cake. I was too excited to get the book I just picked it off amazon without a second thought.
