Creating professional looking figures is a skill worth mastering - it will enable you to add a whole new dimension to your celebration and wedding cakes.
Standing figures are much more complex to make and we will show you step by step our top tips and secrets of success how to create these. You can adapt the skills so although we are making a bride and groom you will go home with the skills to create other designs. Everything is created from scratch – no moulds!
We will teach you how to paint facial details, how to dress your models, how to add embroidery to clothing, how to create a variety of hair styles and so much more.
