Trish Barber

Canberra, Australia

I'm a sugar artist. I make OOAK edible dolls, 3D caricature figurines and cake toppers from gumpaste and fondant. . My figurines are hand-sculpted and hand-painted without the use of moulds so every figurine is fully customised, unique and individual. No two figurines are alike.
