Novelty 101 – 2D Faces

In this workshop you will be learning three different cake designs for the price of one! This is the first workshop in our Novelty program and we will be teaching students how to sculpt a shape and alter the shape to create 3 different faces and expressions. In this workshop you will learn the techniques required to sculpt and smooth a 2D cake with a focus on working with ganache and fondant. You will learn how to create 3 different faces including a monkey, sheep and cow using the same shape but different decorating techniques. You will learn how to cut and cover the shape, cover seams, ice your board and employ six different cake decorating techniques including modeling, making and using templates, simple painting, cutting and covering Styrofoam, creating different facial expressions and using edible glitter. On completing this workshop you will be able to create whatever 2/D face you wish, this is a very important skill for every cake decorator as children’s cakes often consist of animals, including lions, bears etc, this is the perfect workshop to learn these skills. Planet Cake’s goal is to teach students skills that they can replicate at home with the same results. All classes are taught by teachers with Trade qualifications and a minimum of 10 years cake decorating experience, all classes will also be assisted by a teaching assistant.
