About the Author
Alan Dunn began at The British Sugarcraft Guild with his tutor Margaret Morland. He then went on to study the City of Guilds Bakery and Flour Confectionary Courses and, aged only 17, gave his very first demonstration to the Gateshead Branch of the British Sugarcraft Guild. He soon realized that he enjoyed demonstration and teaching a much as the craft itself - and it was not long before the word has spread around the country about his incredible skills. He then trained to become an accredited demonstrator for the guild.
