Very good . Impressed with the instructions in this book. The book is very short - 48 pages, but they are color and detailed. There are useful tips, hints and suggestions. I really like this book because of the details on how to make something, and all the color pictures.

This is a great book for ideas and learning the basics about modelling animals. I generally use fondant, vs. marizpan and many of the same techniques would hold true. It is a small book so the instructions are condensed, but the pictures are helpful and give you a good idea of how to create the creatures. If you're just learning how to work with marzipan or fondant it might leave you with some questions, but if you're already familiar with working with these items and are looking for a quick reference guide to make animals and/or some neat ideas then it would be great for you. The techniques/ideas could probably also be used for such things as modelling clay or the bake-clay (Fimo etc).

HASH(0x9c555060) out of 5 stars A Little Gem May 14 2009
By TooManyHobbies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Ms Parish has a wonderful talent and the modeled animals in the booklet are beautiful, but I found the physical layout of the pages to be cramped and the instructions lacked step-by-step photos.

First of all the book is very small 8 1/4" x 5 3/4" and the text in tiny (8 pt) making it very difficult to read. I actually enlarged the pages on a color copier so I could read them without straining my eyes.

Second, while the text instructions are very thorough, there are no detail photographs or diagrams to support the step-by-step written directions. There is one large photograph of the completed project and one small (3" x 2 1/2") group shot showing all the individual pieces (arms, legs, tail, nose, ext) that make up the finished piece. I'm not an experienced modeler, so close-up photo illustrating each detailed instruction would have been a great help.

But regardless of the small text size and lack of step-by-step photos, the booklet is a little gem. The animals are so cute and with some practice, they are easy to reproduce.

HASH(0x9c482738) out of 5 stars Excellent reference for making fondant figures Oct. 22 2009
By The Arty Crafter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Maisie Parrish's fondant creatures are gorgeous! They are cute and have great personality and are perfect for any cake.

The instructions are good and there is an image at the start of each project showing all the parts needed for each creature. Quantities required for each piece are also given which really helps to get the proportions correct. Some more step by step images would have been good, but it is a small book so there wouldn't be enough space for them.

There are also a few cake ideas at the end using the creatures from the book which are great and really useful.

This book left me wanting more...

Shipping was great! Great book, with great pictures, great instructions and great ideas. I'm glad I order this. Was a bit smaller than I expected, but delivered on everything they promised. All the figures in the book are just as adorable as they seem on the cover. Not at all hard to make.
HASH(0x9c5ba138) out of 5 stars Disappointing Nov. 28 2013
By Cécile - Published on Amazon.com

The book is really tiny, with only a few different shapes. Also the animals look out of date, like some things that would have been done 30 years ago, but clearly not today.

Well illustrated but too much simple. Not so useful as expected. It only recomends to use industrial marzipans and has very little mention how to produce a better product.
