New Skills
History of Sugar Craft

Sugarcraft surprisingly originated in Britain. Modelling in marzipan and pastillage has its origins in the wonderful sugar sculptures which were created for court banquets in Tudor times. British travellers and emigrants spread the art which is now enthusiastically practised in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, South Africa and India.
