You will see our cover star, Molly Robbins, has made a Kawaii-inspired friendly ghost to kick off the Halloween season, using her Creature Creator. Make sure you come and see Molly at the Cake & Bake Show on our stand, A40! Elsewhere, we celebrate this time of year with a carved rice krispies treat skull from Karen Keaney, with a sugarpaste pink bow to make the design a little prettier, on page 31! Julie Rogerson sculpts a witch bust and fi nishes the design with intricate airbrushing on page 74, plus Marie McGrath takes you on a modelling masterclass with her cute zombie on page 85.
We also take a look at Autumnal cakes, with the stunning wafer paper leaf wreath by Aimee Ford on page 16 – did you know you could fry wafer paper first?! For fans of modelling, try Zoe Smith’s spirit of Autumn and practise those impish facial features!
The nights are beginning to draw in, a wonderfully cosy time of year, so fill your kitchen with the delicious smell of baking pies… turn to page 88 to see how Jacqui Kelly decorates them. We would love to see your finished designs, so make sure you send us your photos and you might appear within these very pages!
