About This Class

Hi, my name is Nadia, and I have been running my wedding cake bakery for over five years. I have created over one hundred wedding cakes for brides and grooms, each of these adorned with hand crafted sugar flowers.

When I started out, I struggled to make these beautiful blooms just like many others do, but now, I have mastered the Art of Sugar Floristry. You only need to check out my Instagram to see the number of flowers I have made. And now I am going to share these skills with you.

This class will take you through;

  • how to handcraft wired blossoms, leaves, berries and buds
  • what brand of sugar florist paste or gum paste ( as internationally known) to use for the best results
  • how to apply edible colour to elevate your designs
  • how to group your flowers together, ready for placement on a cake.

This class is suitable for beginners, who are completely new to sugar craft, alongside budding cake decorators with some experience in working with this medium.

I am going to take you through the few tools you will need to get started, so this means you will not need to have a vast kit of cake decorator tools to get started. You can just jump right in!

We will start with making 5 petal blossoms to get you warmed up.

By the end of this class, you should have a good understanding of the material needed to make delicate edible flowers, and the basic tools required to achieve the desired effect.

You will learn how to make leaves without cutters, and secure your flowers and leaves securely to florist wires, ready for insertion into your cakes, reducing the chances of them falling off! 

You can find me on Facebook  and Instagram - where I hang out most!
