Spend a relaxing day learning how to make realistic looking flowers from icing on this one day workshop. The course will provide a brief introduction to making sugar flowers for cake decorating and will provide the skills necessary for students to create a posy of wired sugar flowers, forming a pretty cake topper for their own celebration cakes made at home. You will be expected to bring your own equipment and materials, but some spares may be available to borrow from the tutor if you have difficulty finding certain items.
In order to avoid disappointment, it is advisable to enrol at least 2½ weeks prior to the course starting. We will confirm course information two weeks prior to the start date.
We will be creating sugar flowers using flower paste icing and floristry wires. We will learn how to make flowers such as roses, blossoms and freesias along with leaves.
