Sweet mo­ments for sugar crafters at na­tional show

Macclesfield Express - - THE LAUGHING BADGER -

A GROUP which spe­cialises in three­d­i­men­sional cake dec­o­rat­ing have been show­ing off their creations at a na­tional ex­hi­bi­tion.

Mac­cles­field Su­gar­crafters, who meet at Bro­ken Cross Methodist Church, were in­vited to ex­hibit at the pres­ti­gious Fes­tive Food and Flower show at Black­pool’s Win­ter Gar­dens.

As mem­bers of the Na­tional Sug­ar­craft As­so­ci­a­tion they were the only sug­ar­craft club at the show. Their dis­play, called Sea­sons, was a hit at the show, held at the be­gin­ning of the month.

Lynda Brant, speak­ing on be­half of the group, said: “The dis­play gen­er­ated much in­ter­est, demon­strat­ing the in­tri­cate skills of the club’s mem­bers in pro­duc­ing flow­ers in sugar paste.

“Many of the real flower en­thu­si­asts at the ex­hi­bi­tion were very com­pli­men­tary about the life­like flow­ers pro­duced.”

Sug­ar­craft cov­ers a huge va­ri­ety of styles, and in­cludes char­ac­ters and mod­els made from sug­arpaste or fon­dant, to life­like and botan­i­cally cor­rect flow­ers.

Mac­cles­field Su­gar­crafters meet on the first Fri­day of the month at Bro­ken Cross Methodist Church.

The next open meet­ing at the hall on Chelford Road is on Fe­bru­ary 5.

Any­one who wants to find out more about the club can con­tact the sec­re­tary on 01625 612828.
