Before you go

Three projects in which we will use fondant to create cake decorations from scratch.

What you'll learn

Sugar Sheet: You will see how to make a double height cake. Apply a very simple technique that is a trend, Sugar Sheet with sugar crystals, which will make your cake shine. The final decoration will be made with fantasy flowers made of rice paper that will give distinction to the whole design.

Amapola: You will learn how to make a lining with marble inlays to cover the second floor. You will also see the step by step to make beautiful poppy flowers, which will give a nice detail of color to the cake.

Collage: The last project is about a three-tier cake with a unicorn children’s theme. The fondant will be worked to achieve a gradient effect with which to line the lower tier and apply a 3D collage starting from a figure in rice paper. On the next floor, a large rainbow in gum paste takes center stage. Finally, we included decorative details with edible glitter and paper butterflies.

Who is it for?

It is not necessary to have previous knowledge, you will see from scratch each of the techniques and you will receive a guide from the beginning so that you can perform them without difficulties, making the most of your potential.
