Wedding Cake Class with Layla Pegado and Luciana Borges

Hello, my dear friends! Hope you are doing well!

I’m excited to share that my very lovely friend Layla Pegado and I will be teaching together a Wedding Cake Class this year!  Layla is an amazingly talented cake designer based in Bristol UK who has the unique ability to make cakes that not just look amazing but taste wonderfully great (check out her website at Layla and I met back in 2008  when I spent some time in England doing research for my doctorate degree and have since became wonderful friends. More than that, thanks to her I discovered the fascinating world of sugar paste and cake decorating after attending with her baking classes in Paris and NY.

This is a hands-on 4-day class and will be held in Bristol, UK, starting on the 4th of April 2014.  I will  teach you how to create 8 different sugar flowers: peony, moth orchid, rose, English rose, lilac, dahlia, stephanotis and Angelique tulip. These intensive days will cover advanced techniques like veining, wiring and taping. You will learn how to create corresponding buds and leaves, how to use tools and how to do the colouring, painting, dusting and steaming of the petals and foliages.
