Class Description

Walk the path to petal-piping perfection! A timeless addition to cakes and treats, piped flowers are a wonderful choice for special occasions or "just because". In this class, you'll make and use royal icing to pipe a collection of classic flowers that could have come straight from the garden: simple rosebuds, sweet peas and carnations. Then you'll graduate to piping advanced flowers like wild roses, apple blossoms and three-dimensional daffodils. Instructor Beth Somers will also share three cake and cookie projects that are sure to build up your design confidence and help inspiration bloom. You'll even learn to create truly one-of-a-kind flowers with two techniques for variegating your petal colors.

"I actually was taking Course 2 (Flowers and Cake Design) at a local Michaels, and I used this video class as a supplement. I think I learned more from Beth than from my live teacher. More flowers, the brush stripe technique, and much more. And If I had trouble getting a technique, I could just rewind and watch it over and over until I got it without trying the teacher's patience! I'm considering buying the first class on cake baking basics just to see if I missed anything in the live class. Thank you, Beth!"
