Fashion-Inspired Fondant

with Joshua John Russell
Dress up your cakes with couture stylings, including lace appliqués, quilted textures and edible "feathers." Joshua John Russell shows you how.

Your favorite designer handbag, lacy frock or feathered hat could become the inspiration for your next cake. In Fashion-Inspired Fondant, you'll learn about the design process and how to turn your sketches and ideas into tasty reality. Fondant, gum paste and rice paper become lace, quilted fabric and feathers, turning simple cakes into couture creations. Instructor Joshua John Russell explains his design process, teaches you how to make reusable fondant molds and demonstrates the use of impression mats and gum paste tools for fabulous, elegant results.

"I really loved this class. Joshua takes his time to teach all of the techniques in detail and shows different ways you can add texture to fondant — which in my opinion are all unique. He helps you stretch your imagination to see different things you can do with simple tools. This is really a very good class, there's so much to learn."
