Ms. Custer has given workshops around the world and, for over a decade, at the Culinary Institute of America, Hyde Park, NY. She retired after the publication of her book.

Besides her daughter, she is survived by her sister, Sally Wright; his brother, Robert Borgaard; her stepchildren, Jan Congdon and Paula Held; four step-grandchildren; and a half-great-grandchild. Mr. Custer died in 1998.

“Some stylists have specialties, but Delores can do it all,” said Colin Cooke, a still life and food photographer who has shot hundreds of commercials with Ms. Custer. However, he said, it particularly shone in margarine. At one point, they worked for a company that owned 11 different brands.

“She was the mistress of the caress,” said Mr. Cooke, “the queen of the spoonful, the whirlwind and the curl.”

Margarine, he added, can be tricky.

“You have to be one with the margarine,” he said, “because if it’s a little too cold, it won’t swirl. If it is too hot, it will melt. It is a sculptural work. Delores got it. She knew how to flow or whirl it just right. If it was a slap, she could bring a hot knife into it and wait until a drop formed in a corner.

Then, at the crucial moment, she backed up and Mr. Cooke stepped in and fired.

Mr Cooke was not with Ms Custer when she filmed an advertisement in the Mexican rainforest for I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! The story involved model Fabio, famous for his book cover, swinging over a vine at a friend offering the aforementioned product, spread in tantalizing swirls on a slice of bread. During filming, Ms Custer blew the set’s fuses with a griddle, compromising 60 pounds of margarine about to melt in makeshift refrigerators.

With typical poise and ingenuity, Mrs. Custer got the hero back in shape. Fabio looked good too.
