  1. Made by Bonnie, who emailed to say: “Thank you for writing your book about modeling chocolate. It helped me so much to make my first cake out of modeling chocolate and I make everything on it out of modeling chocolate and it is so much better than fondant. Thank you again”

  2. Nevermind …who needs a book when I can download to my phone !!! I needed now and got it ! Amazing thanks..Your decorating skills are unreal!! I have to make a soccer ball and baseball cake this weekend ..Have you done either of those ?

  3. Wow. I am super impressed by your style and skills, as well as your ability to clearly demonstrate your techniques! Your book is a very worthwhile investment for the hobbyist as well as the professional. Thank you!

  4. Hi
    Since messageing you last year(I was funtasia ammanford then)I have opened my own bakery. Thank you for taking the time to look at my facebook page I appreciate that. I was wondering if you were planning on another book? If so when is it going to be out? in the uk hopefully?
    Also I must ask, how did you manage to get so many people on your facebook page. Business is slow as I am based in a little village so any advice would be greatefully recieved.
    Many thanks

    • Hi Funtasia, Congrats on opening your own business! That is a huge accomplishment! I went and liked your page on FB so I’m now following you. As for how to get a lot of followers on FB, I have been maintaining my page for 4 years so time has something to do with it. I also give out a lot of free information and do giveaways so people are attracted to that. I also follow a lot of other bakery pages and make a habit of commenting on their amazing work whenever it makes me feel inspired or in awe, which often leads to a follow back. But most of all, I try to put out good quality material that people will enjoy as I am also in the business of entertaining readers. Good luck with The Daffodil Bakery. The place looks awesome from what I’ve seen on your page! I wish you the best of luck.

  5. I’m trying to purchase your eBook with no success, I’m trying out the modeling chocolate, getting a feel for it. But I can’t find the eBook. Can you help.

  6. I am new to cake decorating and am just doing special cakes for friends and family. In April I made my first decorated cake (a boob cake for a friend’s birthday) and used fondant for the bra decorations. I did not like the texture or taste of it. In June I made a cake for my friend’s baby shower. It was a giraffe theme. I found your web site thanks to Pinterest and your tutorial on modeling chocolate. I sculpted a giraffe cake topper with it and it turned out beautifully and was so delicious. Much better than fondant. My friend was so thrilled and she put the topper in the freezer to keep for her baby :-) I just ordered your book from Barnes and Noble online and can’t wait to get it! Thanks for sharing your knowledge and expertise! Your work is beautiful!

  7. Hi Kirsten

    Copy of my book has arrived I’m so thrilled with it and can’t wait to learn all the wonderful tutorials. My big downfall will be the modelling chocolate, no matter which brand I use the results are unsuccessful so any hints and tips will be a bonus. Thank you for compiling this book, for all the free tutorials and for sharing your knowledge.

    • Amajan,
      I’m so glad you got the book! Modeling chocolate can take some time to get used to but once you find that perfect balance of chocolate versus syrup and learn to pace yourself as you work so that the chocolate never gets too warm, it will open up many new doors for you. Thanks for buying my book and happy cake decorating!

  8. I preordered your book and have had it and I think it’s a wonderful reference book to have. Your techniques are very easily followed and your talent is amazing. Needless to say I love your book.

  9. Looks very useful to me, but is this book also available in for example dutch? I hope so, because my english isnt very good.

    Looking foreward to it

    Marian :)

  10. I am so excited to see your book will be available to ship to Australia via Book Depository in 21 days!!!!! Am placing my pre order today! Thanks so much, it looks amazing :)

  11. I just ordered your book & can’t wait to get it! As soon as it gets here, I’m leaving a review. I also pinned it on Pinterest & posted it on Facebook.

  12. Can’t wait to get my hands on this book! I have been wanting to learn to use modeling chocolate for so long.

  13. Is the book available in any bookstores like Barnes & Noble yet? I will order from amazon if not! :) thanks!

    • Not yet. I’m working on it! But it might take a couple of months before I can get it stocked in brick-and-mortar stores. If you want it soon, Amazon.com is the way to go. Thanks for your interest :)

  14. This looks like great book!
    Only problem is I can’t get hold of it in the U.K.
    Amazon doesn’t stock it and waterstones has a 2-3 week wait!
    I wish it was available on the kindle.
    Love your work.
    Best wishes
    Jackie

    • Sorry about that. We just got it here in the states 10 days ago. Unfortunately there was a delay plus I am sadly not in control of the overseas distribution…Should be sorted out soon hopefully. Again, apologies for the wait.

  15. Way to go, favorite girl! I’ve loved watching your book develop and am thrilled it’s now actually out. It’s my current bedtime reading – more than delicious.

  16. Just pre-ordered your book. Can’t wait. You were the one who first helped me out when I was just starting to use modeling chocolate. You sent me some great information that I keep in my cake binder. Can’t wait for a whole book filled with your knowledge!

  17. Thank you for this terrific website. Is the US release of your book also May 15, 2013? I know it’s available for presale, but I would like to have it sufficiently in advance of an event on May 24 for which I’ll be making a cake. Thanks again!
