This course aims at achieving realistic and natural-looking gumpaste sugar flowers from an artist’s perspective. Whether you’re an experienced wedding cake designer wanting to refine your craft or an avid hobbyist looking to learn something new, this course will be a great opportunity to take your skills to the next level.
Through the simplest use of sugarpaste, cutters and modelling tools, you’ll learn a step-by-step approach on how to distribute gestures and weight to achieve dynamic and natural floral movements. I will share with you how I source inspiration to making deliberate colour palette choices.

What people are saying about my courses
"I just wanted to message and tell you HOW MUCH I loved your peony course. You have an excellent teaching style that is not only informative and full of practical tips, but is approachable and kind. Usually I am not taking a course to learn a basic concept but to learn the special skills that a particular artist is strong in. You managed to convey BOTH concepts. Which is super rare in an instructor. You taught us to make the flowers,...But you also managed to convey how you see the flower. What moves you and inspires you. That is such a rare gift in the teaching world. So thank you again for your course ❤️ I think it was fantastic!"
