Sugar Beads, Sugar Bling, Sugar Cha-Ching!

We were honoured to host Marina Sousa of Just Cake for 3 days of sugar fun! Known for her wins on Food Network Challenge, her spectacular hanging sugar flower cake made for Oprah, and currently a competitor on Last Cake Standing - Marina Sousa was here to share her knowledge and introduce us to the art of sugar beads!

This class was all about sugar beads and "bling"! Students created a 4 tier cake and learned all about Marina's unique and ingenious bead moulds while working with isomalt. Students got creative with colours and designs - no 2 cakes were alike!

Aren't these blue sugar beads amazing looking? I love the colour!

I loved seeing all the colour combinations and configurations. From the classic black & white with a touch of colour, to a monochromatic yellow colour scheme, so many possibilities!

For those of you who were not able to make it to the class - we do have a limited few more bead moulds available for purchase. They will be available both in store and online.

Thank you Marina for such a great 1st class!
