Information regarding my Gumpaste Figurines

26 Feb



Bride and Groom Cake Topper


I receive literally hundreds of emails each week asking for prices on my figurines, since I am unable to answer each and every email due to the time it takes……I just wanted to let everyone know that at this time I am unable to sell my figurines outside of the state of Ohio due to the time that it requires to hand sculpt each one. I soooo appreciate each and every one of your kind comments on my work, as most of you know I LOVE what I do and have soo many ideas swimming around in my head just waiting to come to life in the form of an Edible Sugar Creation.

I have created and shipped many of my hand sculpted figurines across the United States in the past but with my schedule of keeping up with the Tapings of  my How-To Videos, doing my Figurine Workshops all over the U.S., and being in the middle of writing my first Book detailing how to create my Gumpaste Figurines. So with all of this along with being and wife and a mom there is just no extra time at this time….but once I get this book finished and things ease of a bit I hope to be able to create a sell my hand sculpted figurines again.

I have heard from soo many of you who are new to working with gumpaste and creating figurines asking for my advice to getting your figurines to look just right, the key is to sit and practice, practice, practice……it took me quite a while to get my creations to the point of looking some what normal, for quite some time mine literally looked like aliens. In the Book I am working on I am addressing alot of the questions that I receive here on my blog and emails. The book is being created with beginners in mind as well as someone who has been creating gumpaste figurines for some time. This book will be about creating people in gumpaste. I will be showing adults as well as kids since that is the most requested info I am asked about as far as creating gumpaste figurines. I will keep all of you updated as to the progress of the book, and in the meantime will be creating some great cakes and figurines along with some more free how to videos for all of my sugar friends out there!!

I hope that you are all getting through the cold…..just think spring really is not that far off and believe me I CANNOT wait!
