Im looking for a link or book that shows how to make
handmade cake decorations.(borders/flowers/animals etc)
No tools or cutouts.
Any info would be appreciated.
This might help:
Books on modeling clay figures will also work for fondant.
There are some patterns here in the gallery to make shoes out of gumpaste...all you would really need is a knife to cut it out and some plastic wrap to give it shape while it dries.
