We’re very excited to launch this brand new class teaching our latest technique. Learn this unique and never-before-taught, contemporary cake decorating finish to create beautiful textured floral cakes. This trendsetting new technique was recently developed by Rosalind.

During this creative two day masterclass, you’ll learn to perfect Rosalind’s palette knife painting technique with royal icing to achieve the ‘Windswept Blossoms’ style, and how to apply this technique to your own designs. This comprehensive class covers all aspects of Rosalind’s textured decorative technique to achieve a a beautiful abstract, impressionist finish.

As well as learning this stunning technique, you will also learn how craft extremely unusual and delicate translucent rice paper flowers to pair with your painted designs. These contemporary flowers have a unique glass-like effect, and can be made in a multitude of different styles.

With our expertise and years of experience, not only will we teach you these wonderful techniques, you’ll also perfect our fool-proof methods for covering a double height cake, and how to stack an on-trend, tall and narrow three tier cake.

This masterclass is suitable for any skill level, for those wanting to create unique and contemporary cakes, and learn the beautiful ‘Windswept Blossoms’ technique from the originators at Rosalind Miller Cake School.

On top of all the skills and techniques, you’ll 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.
