2 Day Masterclass - Thursday 17th and Friday 18th January 2019


SKU: N/A Category: Tag:

This course covers the most popular statement sugar flowers, made with more complex techniques, including; old English roses (David Austen roses), cattleya orchids, peonies and anemones. The course is ideal for intermediate students who would like to perfect their sugar flower skills, and also for beginners looking to learn these specific flowers.

With the skills and techniques taught on this two day course you’ll be able to confidently work with the key materials and equipment needed to make a wide variety of complex and realistic sugar flowers, essential to making beautiful bouquets for floral cake designs. Whilst the flowers are taught in our signature style, the skills and techniques you will learn can also be used for different varieties of sugar flowers.

You’ll leave the class with a stunning selection of sugar flowers to use in a bouquet or to attach individually to a cake, and a broad selection of skills and techniques to make more of your own sugar flowers.

During the two days, you’ll have the opportunity to take 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.

At the end of the course you’ll receive a Rosalind Miller The Studio Certificate in Sugar Flower Making.
