Design | Stone Finish Two-Tier Cake with Fresh Florals | Video Tutorial
Tier & floral-dress your stone finished buttercream cakes with confidence!
There are few thing as impressive as a tiered cake standing tall in the middle of a room, stealing the spotlight!
As cake designers we appreciate the art of sugar flowers but we like to leave the flower making to the one that knows best. Mother Nature.
Using fresh florals we will show you how to approach finishing a tiered cake design that will steal the show. In this course we will also be showing you how to achieve a stone finish buttercream cake as well as how to tier your cakes for (almost - because it never really is, right?) worry-free transporting!
