Class Overview

Create an heirloom-inspired cake with guidance from international cake decorating sensation Lindy Smith. You'll make elegant cake boards, carve precise hexagonal cakes and a rounded cake dome, and cover it all seamlessly in fondant. Then, learn accessible techniques for painting an easy, exquisite background onto your cake, and using stencils and royal icing to make borders of detailed "bronze" motifs. Lindy will also teach you to create perfect lines of fondant for the structure and bars of your bird cage without piping. Plus, you'll hand-paint the birdcage structure for an alluring antique effect, and top it all off with a singing bird and a cake topper made from pastillage.
