This course takes you through how to create ‘A Boy and His Dog’ sugarpaste models as a cake topper and the base of the cake to tie into this theme. Paul guides you through how to create each part of the cake using techniques that he’s mastered over the years.

Paul starts with the cake itself and sets up the ‘scene’ on which the boy with his dog will sit, to give more of an overall picture with cake.
