EDUCATION IN CAKE DECORATING & SUGAR ARTS My experience and passion of cake decorating and sugar arts and 30 years of teaching classes world wide, is shared in hands-on, interactive classes.

It’s not all about watching me, it’s also about watching you, guiding you, correcting and encouraging you through every step and every technique. It’s about setting you up for success and confidence to go forward on your own. The wonderful art of cake decorating, with its myriad of mediums, from buttercream icing and piping of borders and flowers, to rolled fondant (which opens the doors to so mu

Cake samples with thin fondant and delicious fillings.

Sage green with edible drapes and roses. Thin fondant will give the best results for the decorator and those eating it!


Do you love chocolate?


Keeping with the lopsided cake theme. Learn to make these cakes with fillings in between the layers. As always, thin fondant over Swiss meringue buttercream is most favourable. It's so important to know how to "engineer" your tiered cakes so they get to the venue in perfect condition. All the hard work is undone if the cake cannot survive the journey and standing time at the reception. Learn the secrets of succes at

Cake to match gown, and bride's tiara, made with edible pearl dragees.


So saddened to hear the shocking news that today (8/10) Chef Nicholas Lodge who was a leader in the cake industry nationally and internationally, passed away suddenly today from a brain aneurysm. Not only was he a fantastic teacher and very meticulous with his crafts, he was also gracious, kind and generous with his wealth of knowledge. My condolences to his families and friends.. Rest in peace Chef Nicholas Lodge 💚💚


Billowing in fondant, ruffles and sugar lace striped bow to match the bride's gown. The bow is edible and as light as a feather so will not fall off the cake during transportation. The wedding cake class teaches all these techniques and more!

... thinly rolled fondant is the answer.


Edible gum paste flowers are awesome keepsakes. I use jellybeans on which to build my rose petals. Heat the wire and push it into the jellybean, no more roses coming off the wires. Just heat the straight end of the wire and push it in. I use denatured alcohol (it burns cleanly without a black residue) and a little alcohol burner.
