Hi everyone! On April 23 and 24, I will be attending the “SOFLO Cake and
Candy Expo”, being held at the Miami Airport Convention Center in Miami,
Florida. I will be judging the cake competition on Saturday, and will be
teaching a 3 hour class on Sunday starting at 11:00 am until 2 pm.
Since this is a 3 hour class, we won’t have the time to finish the entire topper because there is a lot of flowers in this arrangement to complete.
I will however make sure that all the flowers are taught. Depending on how fast the students are, I will teach them how to do the flower pot so that they can finish the arrangement at home. I will demo how to arrange the flowers in the topper as well.
Here are the beautiful lilacs in the picture below.
Below, you will see daisies, leaves and rosebuds.
The whole theme of the arrangement is a modern take of a garden pot full of
flowers. This flower arrangement and pot can be made as a topper so that it
can be saved as a memory of the wedding cake; just in case a bride wants to
keep it as a souvenir.
Below is a picture of the flower pot:
When I teach a class I like to make sure to teach things that I know; especially those of which I use a lot in my cake decorating. I love to work fast and I like shortcuts so I can finish faster. Time is money when it comes to cake decorating and I love to pass these shortcuts to my students. Plus, I always try to fit as much as I can in a class.
So even though the students might not able to finish the whole arrangement, I will demo everything this cake has in the class. The most important concept of this class is making sure that my students learn how to create these beautiful and realistic edible flowers out of sugar.
Here is the link to the class. Click here for the Flower Pot Class in SOFLO.
If you are not able to go to this class, I do have a DVD on how to make the roses.
It’s a 4 hour DVD! Click here for DVD.
I do hope to see you in class. April 23 is my birthday so it will be a fun weekend for me, and I hope for my students as well.
Until next Blog…ta ta!
