About This Class

Buttercream flowers are my absolute favorite to pipe and arrange on cakes!  In this class, I want to show you the techniques to achieve colorful blooms on your own projects.

We will talk about the process of choosing and creating flowers so you can build the skills to pipe almost any bloom, berry, bud, or leaf out of delicious frosting.  I'm going to show you some very specific techniques such as color matching, choosing the right tools,  and how to determine the structure of a flower so that you are confident to create. 

This isn't your cookie cutter point A to point B class.  If you're looking for a way to break out of the mold and learn skills to be more creative, then this course is definitely for you.  I look forward to seeing you in class!
