Sugar Berries, Leaves & Blossoms

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

Put the supporting players in the spotlight as you learn how to replicate sweet little blossoms, delicate ivy leaves and blackberries that look like they were plucked right off the bush — all in gum paste. Veteran Craftsy instructor Maggie Austin brings together these beautiful “background” elements to create charming bouquets that stand on their own. You’ll be amazed at how easily you can assemble lifelike blackberries — with individually hand-formed seeds — using Maggie’s innovative bag-and-shake technique. Hypericum berries and ivy leaves will add a naturalistic touch as will tiny sugar flowers hand-painted in beautiful detail.
