Elegant Lace Cakes

with Zoë Clark
Elevate any cake’s elegance with edible lace techniques from British cake designer Zoë Clark.

Learn Zoë’s versatile approach to appliqué to create beautiful Broderie anglaise (English lace), floral designs and lace borders for multi-tiered lace cakes inspired by bridal fashion. Zoë teaches you how to use brush embroidery and over-piping techniques to add sophistication and texture to your cakes, and the classic British method of covering both a square and round cake in marzipan. You’ll love Zoë’s straightforward teaching style as she shares how to add delicate dimension to all-white wedding cakes and expand the theme to include miniature cakes, cupcakes and cookies.

"This class is really one of the best. Zoe's cakes are among my favorites. I have admired her delicate lace details and I have so many of her cakes stored in my “favorites” and didn't even realize they were all from the same person. Thank you, Zoe, for sharing your amazing talents. I truly feel as if I have taken a million-dollar class.
