Giving someone a beautiful bouquet of flowers is a thoughtful gift - but a cake covered in painted buttercream florals? Even better!

In this video course we're going to be giving you an introduction to painting with buttercream and showing you how to approach achieving a beautiful Protea design finish with palette knives and piping bags!

We will cover:

  • Tools needed for painting the Protea design with buttercream
  • Step-by-step painting of a buttercream Protea posy
  • Finishing touches - metallics & piping details
  • Some quick cake decor planning tips & cake storage

*Note: This course is comprised of video & supporting PDF material and is considered an add-on design course. It doesn't cover the basics of making Swiss meringue buttercream or cake baking, stacking and frosting - we are only focusing on the design here.
