About This Class

Prerequisites: Basic buttercream decorating skills.  Some decorating equipment is required (list included on the project page).

Misty Meadow: Buttercream Florals focuses on the design and decoration of one cake with more modern buttercream techniques.  In this course, you will discover how to take an inspiration photo and build layers of Swiss Meringue Buttercream to create the design on cake. 


You will learn:

  1. How to use buttercream and paint brushes to create a distant meadow look.
  2. How to mix black icing color and create paint.
  3. How to achieve a grey mist look to the base of your cake.
  4. How to pipe small and large wildflowers, stems, and leaves.
  5. How to use luster spray to enhance the look of the cake.

There are resources available with the course that you can use to make a batch of Swiss Meringue Buttercream and shop for supplies.  They are located on the project page and are available for download.
