Nancy Shipman learned to cook and bake by the time she started elementary school. As a young adult, she learned new and exciting skills, and developed a special fondness for creating elegant cakes and candies. Nancy and her husband own a business (Nancy’s Fancies in Santa Rosa, California) that offers an extensive variety of classes and videotapes on candy-making, cake decorating, and creating other specialty items; supplies for cake decorating, candy-making, and general baking; and much more.

“Shipman, the sugar and spice lady of Nancy’s Fancies Santa Rosa confectionery, gives easy basics on everything from deciphering the mysteries of chocolate (temperature and the simple eye of attention) to the rotund sugary heights of balled truffles and popcorn. Shipman — who is understandably unable to escape such titles as a “yummies” — offers straightforward recipes that utilize few special tools (the microwave is as high tech as it gets) and whose titles promise plenty of “foolproof” results. Hard to beat that. — The Sonoma County Independent
