Bride and Groom Figurines

Learning how to make figurines is essential for the modern cake decorator. Almost 25% of our cakes are decorated with figurines. The figurines that are taught in this workshop are not as difficult as our Funky People which are carved form Styrofoam and take a long time and enormous skill to make; rather these figurines are based on traditional modelling techniques and are completely made from icing, they are still very effective and popular and are much more enjoyable to create. In this workshop you will be taught how to create skin colour, how to proportion the bodies and head, paint faces, make effective hair, attach limbs and create clothing to match a reference. Once you have learnt some essential modelling skills you can then create your own figurines varying in skin colour, age and size what fun!

• Create skin colour

• Attach hair & clothes
