Kids in the snow / Niños en la nieve

Winter is just around the corner and (for those who live in the North Hemisphere) one of the best things you can do at this time of the year is to play with snow like these two little kids. If you live in a place where it snows, you will identify with having snow ball battles or making snow men. “Winter Wonderland” is one of the projects you can find in my book, which, thanks to your support is sold out of its second edition! Those of you who ordered it already but don't have it yet, thanks for being so patient. I hope you will find it was worth the wait. 

El invierno está a la vuelta de la esquina para todos los que viven en el hemisferio Norte y una de las mejores cosas que se pueden hacer cuando llega esta época del año, es jugar con la nieve como estos dos niños. La gente que tiene la suerte de vivir en un lugar donde nieva, seguro que se siente identificada al hacer muñecos de nieve o batallas de bolas. Éste es uno de los proyectos de mi libro, el cual, gracias a todo vuestro apoyo, ya se ha agotado la segunda edición. Muchas gracias a todos los que siguen esperando para conseguirlo. Espero que dicha espera merezca la pena y os guste. Os recuerdo que la versión en español saldrá para mediados de abril del año que viene.

There is a monster under my bed! / Hay un monstruo debajo de mi cama!

Halloween is approaching and the best way to celebrate this special date is by making a scary sugar topper like this one I made for issue 118 of The Cakes & Sugarcraft Magazine. Who hasn’t ever had a nightmare imagining that there was a monster under the bed? I am sure that everyone has felt as safe snuggled under the sheets as this little scared boy.

With this sugar topper I would also like to thank all my followers that have registered in the blog (more than 500 already!) as well as all those that follow me on my Facebook page.

Many thanks and regards from Australia!

Se acerca la fiesta de Halloween y la mejor manera para celebrarlo es haciendo esta figura que elaboré para el número 118 de The Cakes & Sugarcraft Magazine. ¿Quién no ha tenido alguna vez una pesadilla imaginando que había un monstruo debajo de nuestra cama? Estoy seguro que todos en algún momento nos hemos tapado con las sábanas para sentirnos más seguros, como hace este niño asustado. 

Aprovecho esta entrada para agradeceros que hemos llegado a los 500 seguidores en el blog. ¡Y gracias también por seguirme en Facebook! 

¡Saludos desde Australia!

My first book is here! / Mi primer libro ya está aquí!


14 beautifully hand-crafted modelling projects for celebration cakes

• A beautifully presented book for sugar modellers of all abilities
• Step-by-step instructions on how to model animated characters in Carlos’ trademark style
• 14 beautiful celebration cakes for the whole family, each with a quick and simple mini-treat project

If you’re celebrating with friends and family, there’s no better gift for someone truly special than a hand-crafted cake made just for them. Now you can watch your very own cakes come to life as you learn to model with talented sugar artist, Carlos Lischetti.
This inspirational new book presents 14 imaginative, adorable and amusing character cakes for every occasion, each one with its own endearing tale to tell. Whatever you’re celebrating, each and every cake is sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face: designs include a beautiful young ballerina perched atop a cake; a jolly grandmother baking with her grandchildren; a futuristic robot that could almost be real; and a stylish groom gazing dreamily at his blushing bride, both beaming from ear to ear on their big day.

Carlos’ professional yet accessible teaching style shines through, showing you how to achieve expressive models with a flawless finish. And with easy-to-follow instructions, step-by-step pictures and templates throughout, this book caters for modellers of all abilities. What’s more, each cake is presented with an accompanying mini-treat project, perfect for party bags and wedding favours.

Pinocchio / Pinocho

Pinocchio is my latest sugar topper I created for the Italian Cake Festival that took place in Milan a month ago. This famous character has the personal touch of my brother Elio who always helps me with the first steps of designing my figures.
I hope to include any of my future courses to show the technics to create it. In the meantime, Pinocchio and I wish you all a happy Summer. 

Pinocho es mi nueva figura de azúcar creada para el Italian Cake Festival que tuvo lugar en Milán  hace un mes. Este famoso personaje tiene un toque personal de mi hermano Elio, quien siempre me ayuda en los primeros pasos de diseño de mis figuras.
Espero incluirlo en alguno de mis próximos cursos para mostrar las técnicas para su realización. Mientras tanto, Pinocho y yo os deseamos a todos un feliz verano.
