Novelty 105 – Fantasy Tree

This is the fifth workshop in our updated, 10 module Novelty Series program, and is aimed at students with an intermediate skill level. This brand-new three day workshop teaches students to create an extended complex shape, with a focus on internal construction. In this workshop you will learn the techniques required to structure, sculpt, smooth and cover a complex extended 3D shape. On completing this workshop you will be able to create various extended designs in cake; this is a very important skill for every keen cake decorator as 3D cakes like this are extremely popular. Once you can create this shape there are no limits to the design opportunities; create a fairytale fantasy, a rain forest or a scary Halloween tree! Planet Cake’s goal is to teach students skills and designs that they can replicate at home with the same results.
