ICES09 - Evening Two

Last night I had another hands on class. The focus was on gumpaste pansies and violets.

I was looking forward to it because the instructor, Nicholas Lodge, of ICSA (International School of Confectionary and Sugar Arts) has a fabulous reputation as both an artist and a teacher. So I finally took the plunge, and I did have a great time!

These kinds of classes start out with group instruction and a demo of each method and piece of equipment used.

Then we are each assigned to a kit of toys ( I mean tools!) and get to work.

After petal, stamens and leaves are added the flower really blooms.

Although it is the painting (with food safe dust colors) and a quick trip through a steam shower that really brings it to life.
