1. Charming Chrysanthemums

Valeri will teach you how to properly apply thick daubs of frosting to paint and achieve a well-structured piece of art. In this class, colours of the Chrysanthemums and foliage are highlighted to create a lovely contrast against the subtly blended canvas of our cake. Correct strokes, palette knife handling and position will be taught so that you will be able to recreate other stunning creations using the painting stroke.
