Interview with Cake Decorator Ann Pickard
I first saw Ann Pickard at a sugarcraft show in Dublin. She was demonstrating how to make some really cute little animals in just a few seconds! The shop that I was working in at the time purchased some of Ann’s books to sell, and they were a real hit!
What I liked most about Ann’s books was the really easy to follow, step-by-step way it was written. She even includes templates so that you know exactly how big to make each piece of icing that you are working on!
Ann’s website has some great video tutorials that are really easy to follow. Have a look at this one where she shows you how to make little dogs!
Now for an interview with Ann!

What first got you interested in Sugarcraft?
I trained as a baker in Cheltenham 30 years ago and always wanted to decorate cakes.
What would you say is your area of specialty?
I specialize in using modelling techniques which are quick and easy, but look professional and polished.
Are there any other Sugarcrafters whose work has inspired you?
