A Special Sneak Peek at Some Upcoming Craftsy Classes!

Posted by on Jul 19, 2012 in Cake Decorating | Comments

With the success of his first Craftsy class, Modern Piping, we decided to bring cake, fondant, and frosting extraordinaire Joshua John Russell back for more!

Joshua John Russell on the set of one of his upcoming Craftsy classes, Fashion-Inspired Fondant.

Coming soon: Modern Buttercream 

In this free, online Craftsy class, learn Joshua John Russell’s tips and tricks to beautiful buttercream. Jumpstart your cake-decorating adventure, or brush up on integral skills as Joshua discusses cake basics and gives you two different techniques for covering and embellishing a three-tiered cake in buttercream.

Coming soon: Fashion-Inspired Fondant

In this class, Joshua shows how to create sophisticated cakes inspired by couture garments, adding a high-fashion flare to cake decorating. This class features three main fashion-inspired looks: fondant lace, quilted fondant, and fondant paneling. Learn how to add texture to your fondant so it truly does emulate fabric! Joshua also covers finishing techniques based on fashionable accessories, including rice paper flowers and luster-dusted sugar pearls.

So keep an eye out for these two wonderful classes and the many more Craftsy will have up and running soon!
