Maisie Parrish

Maisie Parrish is a self taught international sugar artist, who has created a unique style which is instantly recognisable and much copied. People often tell her she has magic hands, and when she begins to work, then something magical does indeed happen.

Her work is widely acclaimed, and her fans travel across the world to be taught by her in her studio in Stoke on Trent, where she runs a successful business, teaching, demonstrating, writing books, and making DVD'S and tutorials in order to satisfy the demand from her dedicated followers.

Originally she taught herself how to make cute figures in salt dough, and eventually created the most successful dough craft company in the UK called Maisie Dough. A high point came when she completed two books on this subject, and was asked to create a range for the animation giant Walt Disney in Florida, nothing she did or does ever starts out as a hobby.

After being invited to try her hand at creating three dimensional figures in sugar, and the rest is history. People find it difficult to believe that she has never actually baked cakes for anyone, this was never in the scheme of things, because all the work she creates is published. Now with 12 successful book titles, and an amazing catalogue of work, she continues to travel the world making friends and sharing her unique modelling skills. Most of her cakes tell a story, and so the story for the QUEEN OF CHARACTERS continues with great success.
