Class Overview

Create cakes so fashion-forward, all they're missing are the celebrity sightings! Join professional cake decorator Eva Salazar as she shares her secrets for incredibly stylish bows and textiles. First, find out how to give your bows a realistic hand-tied look you'll love. Then, make a rounded top tier without carving and create a wonderful wired, flying bow. Up next, add drama with hand-cut silhouette designs that don't require templates or cutters. And, never settle for basic again when you can bring a gravity-defying bow to life with fabric texture and a fondant ribbon edge. Moving on, master Eva's techniques for creating an eye-catching animal print gift-wrap bow. And add mesmerizing mosaic texture that can be customized for any event or person. Finally, Eva shares her tricks for covering an entire tier in wafer paper and for making her coveted wafer-paper pinwheel bow!
