About the Author
Debbie Brown is a cake decorator, demonstrator, tutor and author of cake decoration and sugarcraft, with many books published on novelty/sculptured cakes. Based in Ashford, Middlesex, on the Surrey/West London border area, she is the UK's best-selling author of character and novelty cake books. Debbie started cake decorating when her children were very small, mainly as a creative outlet. The very first cake was a train with carriages filled with sweets. A new career went on from there, making cakes for special occasions which led on to commissions, books, magazine articles, teaching and demonstrating, sometimes around the world, and television.
Over the years Debbie has made some spectacular cakes, for big celebrations and weddings, for well-known people and places, but many just for a birthday treat, helping to mark the day in a special way. The cakes are usually sculptured novelty cakes as a base with a sugarpaste/rolled fondant covering. Debbie's books are based on these cake types, but she also makes spectacular wedding and celebration cakes with delicious flavours and fillings, either modern or traditional, with some designs adorned with life-like flowers made from sugar.
Debbie is a member of the British Sugarcraft Guild and is one of their accredited demonstrators who travels around the country demonstrating at branch meetings. Demonstrations usually show a novelty cake from start to finish or her incredible modelling skills. She is also in demand at specialist cake decorating shops, sugarcraft groups and clubs, colleges and schools around the world, who also organise demonstrations and workshops where her skills are taught.
