Sugar Berries, Leaves & Blossoms

with Maggie Austin
Bring filler flowers to the forefront and make beautiful gum paste botanicals in cake designer Maggie Austin's latest Craftsy class.

Create beautiful gum-paste botanicals that will finish any cake in flawless style with cake designer Maggie Austin as your guide. You'll learn how to make sugar leaves, delicate blossoms and blackberries that look like they were plucked right off the bush. Find out how to combine these sweet elements to create charming bouquets that stand on their own and elevate your cake. You'll be amazed at how easily you can assemble lifelike embellishments using Maggie's innovative bag-and-shake technique, and you'll also discover how to add realistic color and details to your creations. As a bonus, Maggie shares something every cake designer should know: How to make gum paste!
