Meet Liz Shim and start class by discovering the perfect consistency of buttercream to achieve smooth and stable piped flowers. Then bring natural colors to life and get comfortable with ideal piping pressure, speed, spacing and more.
Classic Rose (20:24)
Create a sturdy base for your flower and build standing petals with ease. Liz will show you how to build layers of petals for a variety of rose sizes, and how to successfully transfer flowers from nail to board.
English Rose (12:31)
Experiment with two variations of English rose centers and pipe wide petals to encompass the center of each for distinct results.
Master a new type of petal! Learn how to pipe upward, instead of side to side, as you create a full chrysanthemum. Then have fun creating the young buds and open-centered styles of this beautiful bloom.
Carnation & Hydrangea (16:09)
Mix colors and stripes to create flowers with depth and dimension. And bring carnations to life by piping ruffled petals in gorgeous freeform movements. You’ll also learn how to pipe hydrangea clusters to highlight their unique shape.
Building a Bouquet (29:08)
Finally, structure the top of your cake to help create the shape of your bouquet. You’ll learn how to arrange your piped flowers and bring your bouquet to life by adding details including leaves, buds and baby’s breath.
