Learn sugar artistry on this packed 2 day course and come away from the day with a stunning sugar flower wreath, ready for you to decorate a cake with.
You’ll be covering a wide variety of wired sugar flowers, including our favourite types found in English meadows and country gardens, and of course on lots of our most popular cake designs!
Learn how to make Briar Roses (aka wild roses), Forget-Me-Nots, Daisies, Cornflowers, Freesias and buds, Apple Blossoms, branches and leaves. Not only are these flowers perfect for making a wired wreath for the front or top of your cakes, but they’re also ideal for making any organic floral cake design.
During the class we’ll also take you on a 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. Plus there’ll be lots of useful hints and tips to take home, learned and developed over the years (*weekdays only).
At the end of the course you’ll receive a Rosalind Miller The Studio Certificate in Sugar Flower Making.
