Sugar Realm Craftsy cake decorating class "Make ahead techniques for stunning cakes" is about to be launched!
Countdown to the launching of my Craftsy cake decorating class has officially begun!
In Lesson 1, I will introduce my signature rolled chocolate recipe and talk about the differences between rolled chocolate and fondant, and explain why my chocolate is ideal to cover smooth and precise cakes with the paneling method. I will demonstrate how to roll, trim and store pristine and oh-so-delicious chocolate panels, until it's time to apply them to the cake!. Below are a few screenshots from Lesson 1!!!
Lesson 2 is all about pre-decorating your chocolate panels and having them ready to go until it is time to apply them to the cake...how cool is that?
In this lesson I cover a favorite technique: Make-ahead appliqués!
There is 1 day for the launch of my Craftsy class...I'm often asked about my sugar flowers...I LOVE making them!
In lesson 4, I go over step by step instructions on how I make my statement Roses!
