Viola, Mav and I taught this same wonderful class last year...4 days to create a two-tier wedding cake using the beautiful Australian techniques of chocolate ganache and fondant, as well as completing the tiers with an exquisite pearl finish and beautiful stenciling. Decorations for the cake included an open peony, hydrangea, buds and leaves...all in soft tones to complement Faye's beautiful original design:
After having so much fun last year and seeing the beautiful results from our students, we just couldn't wait to get back together to teach the class for a second time...and once again, we had a truly wonderful weekend. Here are some favorite photos...

And thank you to my lovely colleagues and very dear friends...Mav and Viola...could NOT have done it without you both - I so love working with you and spending time with you!
Thank you so much to the wonderfully talented Faye Cahill for your beautiful cake design and allowing us to share it with the students. And I am so honored to use my flowers as a finishing touch!
