Learn how to create a beautiful impressionist style cake, mastering the art of abstract textured floral painting with buttercream icing.

We’ll show you how make smooth Swiss meringue buttercream before layering, filling and trimming your cake for an even finish, and how to flawlessly buttercream ice with perfect sharp edges.

You’ll learn how plan out your design and a beautiful colour palette for painting with, and how to mix colours for painting with buttercream. We’ll inspire you to find your own artistic expression and use your creativity to paint your impressionist style cake with abstract backgrounds and textured flowers.

At the end of the class you’ll have a delicious creation (beautiful enough to display in a gallery!) to take home and share, or simply admire. And you’ll leave armed with the skills and techniques to make more of your own unique designs.

You’ll also take an exclusive tour of our professional cake design studio and kitchen (conveniently located next to the classroom), as well as meeting Rosalind and the team for a Q&A, during which you can ask all your burning cake questions and learn her tips and tricks developed over 20+ years of design training.
