Okay, let's talk about the first ones.
Why wouldn't you want to make crackers out of saracino, great to show how to sculpt realistic food.
Part two of the cake backdrop tutorial and getting down to the nitty gritty by adding to the airbrushed background using a paintbrush and edible dust colours.

Kits to Create videos
Here you can watch the
Live unboxing and product reveal of the Dragon chocolate lollypop kit.
This was on Friday at 6pm, but don't worry if you missed it, the 32 minute live is on my YouTube channel. here is the link.
No time to watch? then watch the promo video revealing a little of the method behind creating the kit as well as boxing up the first kit. But don't forget, there is lots more in the live reveal
Monthly unboxing and tutorials
Each month when a new kit is released, there will be a live unboxing over on my youtube channel followed a few days later by a make-a-long tutorial where you can learn how to create your kit.
Of course, each kit contains instructions, but in the make-a-long I give lots of extra hints and tips as well as telling you multiple ways to temper your chocolate
October Kits to Create box
The design is well underway and will be revealed in the next couple of weeks to give you time to make your Halloween creations. Even more perfect when there are little ones to keep occupied during half term.
Last but not least
The first day class was on Saturday and in my absolute delight to be back, I forgot to take photos, so here is a photograph of the subject that was created
We had a fabulous day working with wafer paper.
learning three conditioning methods
assembling into stems
arranging into this delicate corsage
It was so fantastic to be back
Head over to the day classes page to see what is still available
Now I will be spending half term week making my last wedding cake............for now..............as a cake maker in business since 1999 I can't promise I will never make another cake as the temptation is too great when a fabulous design request is made, but for now, it is lovely to be able to finally make the re-scheduled design.
I will also be recording catch up videos for the weekly classes for Monday morning to dust and assemble the clematis and dusting the scabious
and for Tuesday evening dusting the wheat
and finally for Wednesday morning assembling the daphne
I will probably be doing this as a live straight into the group to avoid the usual up to 3 hours to upload each class, you are welcome to watch, however, It won't be a class, I will be doing my homework as well as the dusting and assembly, so won't be teaching other than to explain the relevant bits.
Demonstration Tuesday evening
I will be demonstrating for the national sugar art association, and get to make my meerkat again which is fab, so those of you that are members, will be able to watch
So it will be a busy busy week.
I hope you have a relaxing time. If you have work to catch up on, try to just use your normal class time to give you the rest of the week. But please don't worry too much. We are only two weeks in to the 10 week class, so there is loads of time :)
Have a great week.
