Make the Meringue Hydrangea Cake, whose gorgeous piped hydrangeas cascade down a shimmering pearl backdrop. Finally, go in depth as Wendy guides you step by step through a Lambeth Sampler Cake that pairs an eye-catching two-toned background with the elegance of royal icing roses, miniature grape clusters, draped swags, graceful over-piping and more. Deliver the perfect wedding cake for an unforgettable celebration.
Meet your instructor, cake designer Wendy Kromer, as she previews the three exquisite cakes you'll make in this class. Then, get started with the Calico Cake as Wendy shows you how to use fabric as design inspiration and offers tips for cutting, thinning, forming and coloring the delicate five-petal flower that is the heart of this cake. Finally, cut along with Wendy as she creates all the stripes used in the decorative gum paste band.
Complete the Calico Cake as you apply petal dust to mimic a watercolor effect on the bottom of your cake, attach all of the stripes to create the band, hand-pipe the vines and place the flowers. Add royal icing accents and a piped dot border as this dream wedding cake becomes radiant reality.
Learn the secrets behind making perfect Swiss meringue as you start your next cake, then pick up pointers and advice for piping the hydrangea blossoms. Wendy will show you how to start flat, move to piping on a flower nail and finally how to pipe multiple flowers on a single nail.
