Welcome to our premium workshop exploring the art of modern cake design, construction and decorating, including learning how to handcraft delicate wafer paper florals. Confectionary artisan Stevi Auble shares with us inspiring, encouraging and thoughtful instruction on everything you need to know to create awe-inspiring edible wafer paper florals in her signature techniques, plus modern cake designs, from the foundational skills of creating a sturdy (and delicious) base, to the how-to of successful stacking and finishing techniques.

Your edible wafer paper floral bouquet includes instructions, materials and specialized tools to handcraft—in stunning detail—ranunculus, peonies, cosmos, garden roses, anemones and accompanying leaf embellishments. You have enough of everything to make five of each flower, giving you flexibility to practice and perfect your craft. In addition, Stevi leads us through the process of building a tiered Romantic buttercream cake design from scratch—learn tips for baking, stacking and filling tiers, creating a crumb coat, expertly applying buttercream, and decorating a finished cake with perfection. Stevi introduces a plethora of information to transform makers into seasoned sweet designers. This workshop covers the full spectrum of cake construction and decorating, focusing on handcrafting delicate, edible florals made from wafer paper.

In this workshop, we tap into the most creative and colorful versions of ourselves as we explore how to paint the sky in Stefanie Bales’ signature style. We’ve thoughtfully collaborated with Stefanie of Stefanie Bales Fine Art to bring you expert-led instruction paired with inspiring and empowering creative freedom so you can uncover what’s in your own sky.

Stefanie walks us through all the steps to create a light-filled acrylic seascape and sky painting. You’ll be introduced to Stefanie’s favorite tools and materials for making, and you’ll explore all of the artistic benefits of working with her curated color palette. Stefanie also allows us to discuss and dive into various brush techniques and tips for organic mark making, as well as thoughtful instruction on working through the process of building out color layers. In the end, you’ll have a rich understanding of new painting techniques and a stunning canvas featuring a one-of-kind rendition of a light and cloud filled sky in beautiful pastels.
