About This Class

This class will give you the skills to transform your artwork into a beautiful edible centerpiece for a party or wedding.  We will be exploring different ways to bring artistic creativity to the dessert table by applying it to an edible canvas. The first canvas will be rolled fondant.  You can use this skill to paint on cakes that are covered with fondant or cut out a shape, such as a circle as I demonstrate, to apply overtop buttercream on a cookie or cupcake.  The second canvas will be royal icing.  We will be exploring this technique on cut-out cookies with a smooth surface such as sugar cookies.  

No matter what you decide to paint, this technique is a great way to personalize your dessert creations for a lasting impression!
