hi debbie i enjoy your work im doing a toy story cake and making woody i have used a lollipop stick for support, can i take that out or leave it in when its dry please im not sure what to do i dont want it to collapse,
many thanx kel by the way it will be a cake topper i will put on a bed cake. - Best to keep the lolly stick inside, it'll hold the figure together. I leave some protruding from the bottom to stick into the cake, this helps figures to stand up :) - I usually leave the lolly stick in, it helps with support so you are correct :) Tell your customer what you have done so they know something food safe but inedible is inside the figure :)
Hi Debbie, your cakes are fab and great to follow. I'd like to make the fairy toadstool cake made with a 1litre bowl but as it's for a party, I don't know how many portions it would make. If possible could you let me know? Also, I think it would be really helpful to include how many portions individual cakes would make.
Thank you very much.
Hi Kenelma, I don't usually include a servings chart as portion sizes are different around the world. For the UK, this particular design would serve 15-20.
Hi debbie i love your work have just done the teddy cake from your book baby cakes for a christening and and it went down a storm so good they didnt want to cut it i would like to send a picture but i am not on face book. Also when is your next book? - Hopefully by the end of 2014 or definitely 2015, so busy travelling and teaching at the moment :)
Hi Muriel, hopefully a new title will be released 2015. I'm busy with other projects at the moment :) Thank you for your interest! x
Debbie, i really cherish and adore all your cake designs. Believe me, you are my inspiration in cake making. Thumb up
mrs. debbie i would like to know, how can you make a cake mix somewhat like a box mix. i use pound cake everytime a bake a cake. i like it. i just want to have that softest to it. not the pound all the time.
thank you, - Just reduce some of the flour, this will make the cake lighter :)
I really adore Debbie Brown the prettiest cake.. I can't imagine how could u make that.
Could I buy ur cake from Indonesia? I wish I could.....
Please make a trip to Saudi Arabia, Debbie!

Hi, I'm from Colombia and I love your work. Unfortunately buying a book on Amazon for my country, is something that comes very expensive and so I'd like to ask if you do online tutorials and when your going to publish your books on Kindle edition? I will love Naughty Cakes on Kindle!!
Thank you very much for share your work.
I plan to write some online tutorials in the future. You can order books through www.bookdepository.com as this company have my titles discounted and send with free worldwide shipping :)
Your cakes are really unbelievable....masterpieces! Zuzana from Slovakia
Love all your cake and your work, you are really blessed. I wish I can tap some of your ideas they are really all beautiful. Just to let you know you have an fan here in Houston Texas USA.

I love your Works!!!! Just wanna let u know that you have a Big Fan in Austria!!!
Your cakes are awesome. Looking forward to join your online tutorials.
I have made many of your cakes (not as good as yours) and have had lots of comments. Your cakes are truly amazing. I was lucky to see you when you were touring in NZ. Will there be a Xmas book that you have talked about ?
Hi Debbie, Thank you for the amazing Ganesh figurine class you taught at Whimsical Cakehouse. I had the best day and learnt so many tricks about achieving the finer details on sugar figurines. Wish I could have done more of your Sydney classes on this trip to Australia. Guess I will have to eagerly a wait your next trip to Australia. Regards, Jayne Baratta
will you come to greece sometime? i hope so, i love your work!!!
Hi Debbie! I just wanted to say that you are amazing!!! I see here on this site that many other people have said this as well. I feel that to me, you are the most treasured sugar artist in my heart. The tiny small details and emotional expressions on your figures give a life to the scenes you shed light on. These are emotional cakes. Well done. Love, Elizabeth
I LOVE YOUR CAKES!!! I ADORE YOUR CAKES!!! THANK YOU AND YOUR BOOKS.... MARCELA, Czech Republic

Please make a trip to Dubai Debbie....
Hi Debbie, I'm really glad write to you, I hope that soon you come to Madrid, to give us a piece of all your art !!!
I have made cakes for many years having had to teach myself. However I came across some of Debbie's books in our book stores and was sold on her creations. They have inspired me so much and I have started getting many cake orders. Thank you Debbie and keep the books coming, Soon I will have all of them. Shirley South Africa
I usually make cupcakes, but have ordered my first book of yours. Can't wait for it to arrive...I really need to have a go at making that gorgeous carriage, come to Devon please!
What a truly awesome cake designer. I have all of Debbie's books and constantly refer to them for inspiration. Lovely lady too !!
Hi Debbie, I am a huge fan of your books and also you are my inspiration. I now make some cakes at home for my children. I missed your demonstration in Farnham. It would be my greatest dream come true to learn from you.
Une vraie magicienne ...... Bravo !
You need to come & run a course in south island of NZ :)
Debbie you made my day today when you emailed me back I think I'm going to print out the emails hang them up haha .. Seriously! I think it would be great if you made purchasable online tutorials and downloadable versions of your books for people like me that are from places which have strict shipping regulations on certain items, like the naughty cakes and let us not forget how costly it is to ship! Please continue inspiring us, to people like me you are a great artist!
You should come visit New Zealand and do some masterclasses when you come!
I am now the proud owner of 5 Debbie Brown books and I am in awe of the wonderful work - Debbie, you are my muse! I would've LOVED to come to Cape Town to take part in your course, but alas time and money were against me, so I have invested in the books instead and am slowly working my way up to mastering the art. Thank you for your inspiration, and thank you that even us living in remote little places can have access to your tuition. Schweeet wishes from my kitchen to yours! Mandy Nel :-)

Debbie I can't wait to have your new book !!!! See you in Mexico City
I have attended 3 of Debbie's workshops in her studio and found them fun and entertaining as well as educational. When I attended the first workshop, I was a green newbie and very nervous. Debbie has such a calming character, that I felt at ease in a very short time. And the chocolate shortcake that she served us midmorning is to die for! I have now been making cakes for a few years, and with Debbie's inspiration and the use of her books, I feel like an old hand! But you are never to old to learn, and we learn every day. I'm looking forward to her last two books (to make up the collection!)
I absolutely love your books! I spend ages reading them and love the details. The designs are very inspirational and have helped me develop my cake decorating skills, as I am completely self-taught. Thank you for putting such effort into your books.
Debbie you are such a wonderful person, love your cakes, love your classes, you make magic with your hands. I can wait to see you next year in Mexico.
Debbie your new page is Great, Congratssssssssssssss, thank you for being A Great Person and teaching me so many things, sincerely Claudia M ,(Méx)
I started making cakes just over a year ago and the first book I purchased was your favourite character cake book to make the postman Pat cake. Had great difficulty but thanks to your instructions and photos I survived. Many cakes and books later I have just got the enchanting magical cakes book and can't wait to do one of the projects. Thanks so much for not putting me off a fantastic hobby that is providing lovely memories for friends and family when they get a special cake.
Ms. Debbie is the BEST CAKE ARTIST I ever see. I follow her job and her books for many years. I learned a lot techniques for her books, easy to follow and results are AWESOME. Thanks Ms. Debbie for your job and for share your talent!!

I had the great pleasure of hosting Debbie Brown for three Masterclasses in Dublin, Ireland in May, 2011. Three days of pure magic! Looking forward to hosting you again in April, 2011. A pre booking list of names has already started!
I just returned from Cake Camp in Las Vegas where I had the extraordinary good fortune of taking the "Funky Fairy Model" class with the incomparable Debbie Brown. She is one of the most delightful (lovely, I should say) people one could ever hope to meet. Debbie, your patience, good humor and superior teaching skills allowed us to "make magic" with our hands. Thank you! I'm looking forward to your new book and to taking additional classes with you in the future! : ) All the best from the States, Diana
I have no words to say how much I'm a fan of debbie, wonderful person, sadly did not have many classes with her, learn a lot from her books and tips. I wish her all the luck in the world with her wonderful work I hope to return to do more lessons soon big hug Icaro Castro
Amazing !!! She is really an artist. I bought almost all her books! Her work is my inspiration! I hope she comes to teach in Brasil some day..
I love Debbie Brown she is my idol, her books are fantastic but what would be great is a book on novelty christmas cakes!!
Debbie Brown's books are truly amazing. I bought one of her books and couldn't stop!! She is an amazing cake decorator and artist. Her books far outshine the rest by far, with her beautiful creations and vivid imagination, she never ceases to amaze me. I hope one day to be able to sit in on one of her masterclasses when she comes to my town. Thank you Debbie Brown, you are truly an inspiration :)
Thank you Debbie for sending me a copy of 'Children's Character Cakes' in record time (all the way to New Zealand in one week)! Your book is stunning. Thomas looks amazing and I am looking forward to the challenge! My daughter has already put an order in for the Rainbow Magic Castle for her next birthday. Cheers Tina

books. I was determined to make something that looked half as lovely as
one of her cakes. She continues to inspire me and I really love how
versatile she is. Thank you Debbie for all you have done for sugar
Once I put my first order in Global Sugar Art for molds and crafting
"helpers" I've noticed one of your books. Ordered it right away and
could not wait to receiving it. It's a long way from USA to Romania!!!
When I've got it I could not do anything else for the next three days,
but studying it. I would definitely love to see you at work one day.
Thank you so much for the lovely work you do!
