This course provides you with the creative freedom to craft your own molds and truly reflect your unique style

This course will help you translate the realism of each element into a mold. The key to ensuring that every detail is clearly perceptible lies in the mastery of technique and the skills of the artist or pastry chef.

We will also delve into the realm of pastry kitchens, where you’ll witness the step-by-step process of creating elaborate preparations as offered at La Postrería. A crucial aspect we’ll cover is preservation, enabling you to prepare a substantial quantity of desserts and serve them on demand.

Our goal is to inspire you to follow the guidance of pastry chef Jesús Escalera and design desserts for plates, displays, or finger food, all harmoniously and symbolically tied to their main ingredients.

By the end of this online course, you will have the ability to:

  • Craft silicone molds capable of withstanding both hot and cold temperatures.
  • Shape PVC sheets to create lightweight and cost-effective molds.
  • Utilize stencils and the dehydration technique to give 2D figures a three-dimensional quality.
  • Repurpose everyday items as molds with unique characteristics.
