Also in August we hosted another new face & amazing talent - Debbie Goard of Debbie Does Cakes. Debbie is known around the globe for her amazing cake sculpting and especially for her faux food & animal cakes. She has a love for dogs, especially Chihuahuas - so it was only fitting that she come and teach us just that! I was especially excited about this class for 2 reasons: 1) because Debbie is a dear friend of mine and 2) because I was going to embrace the student role and take the class!
Working with fresh cake & buttercream, students were guided through the process of creating a to scale dog, sculpting the head, carving the cake, structure & airbrushing. So much information was given and the results were fabulous! If you were unable to join us, be sure to check out Debbie's new book - Twisted Cakes! And you too can take home a part of the class, get Debbie's custom "Skully" stencil HERE!
Here are some highlights from our class
A detailed handout complete with templates was given to each student
