Use ordinary tools and ingredients to decorate extraordinary cake designs with lessons from Bliss Pastry owner Kristen Erich. Start by creating a single-tier antique-inspired cake with embossed fondant embellishments, gilded accents, piped borders and gorgeous magnolia sugar flowers. Move on to making the perfect two-tiered little girl's birthday cake with an easy-to-paint ballerina plaque, lovely pulled roses, stunning fondant swags and drapes, an extraordinary crackle finish and more. Plus, create a beach-themed cake that combines delicate roses, tropical plumerias, sparkling sugar coral, breathtaking sea foam effects and edible sea glass! By the end of class, you'll have learned a collection of techniques you can use to achieve head-turning cakes without fancy materials or expensive tools.
Get inspired by Kristen Erich, a passionate cake designer who will guide you through the creation of three unforgettable cakes. Start with learning how to emboss fondant on a one-tier cake and paint it with luster dust for an antique finish. Then Kristen shows how to pipe bead and rope borders.
Put the finishing touch on your antique cake: a beautiful gum paste magnolia. Kristen teaches you how to form different-sized petals and the textural flower center with realistic details. In addition, you'll learn how to assemble the magnolia, which provides the perfect topper.
Get started on the second cake by making a tiny ballerina plaque. Kristen demonstrates how to trace a picture onto fondant and paint it with shortening and petal dust for a beautiful translucent look. You'll also learn the pinch-pull-wrap method of making roses by hand for the plaque's border.
