How to Recreate Wedding Dress Designs on Cakes with Kathleen Lange
Learn how to recreate wedding dress designs on to cakes at The Ultimate Sugar Show in Atlanta, GA on Nov 9, 2019 from 6 - 8 PM.
Ever met a bride who wanted to match her wedding cake with the details on her dream dress? Were you stumped on how to mimic the gown details onto a cake? This is the perfect class for you!
Join Kathleen Lange in this class designed to help you transfer elements from your brides wedding gown on to an edible medium such as the wedding cake. In this class students will learn a technique using piping gel and luster dust which Kathleen started using in the 90’s to resemble the stitching and design work of a wedding gown. This technique impresses, even the most distinguished cake design artist.
Learn how to transfer Victorian scrolls or other design work, by making your own embossing pattern/presses; embellishing techniques to make your wedding cakes resemble Bridal Gown design work; by using piping gel, edible dusting powders, applying highlights and dimension to your wedding cake designs.
This technique may be used on cakes frosted with buttercream, whip cream or fondant cakes. After the design is completed you may refrigerate, and your piping gel will not run. This technique works great, if you do not want to use hard type candy pearls, silver or gold dragees; this technique will achieve the same look without the worry of someone biting down on a hard candy.
Basic cake decorating and piping skills required. All advanced and professional levels.
