Overview

Master decorator Nicholas Lodge teaches around the world. Now you can bring his knowledge to your own kitchen as he shows you all his favorite techniques. Nicholas will guide you through the creation of roses at all stages of development, sharing numerous time- and effort-saving tips along the way. Beginning with his special method for creating floral tape buds for a sturdy foundation, Nicholas works magic with gum paste, bringing buds and petals to life. You'll create delicate ruffles, realistic leaves and calyxes and even thorns! Then you'll color your blossoms with petal dusts and gels, and use steam to set the colors and add a healthy sheen. Nicholas will help you gather your creations into a stunning arrangement so realistic and sweet-smelling, you won't believe your eyes!
