3 Tier Cake From Class With Colette Peters

I recently completed a gumpaste & fondant class with Colette Peters herself at the Wilton school in Darien, IL. It was amazing! Here is the final cake that I made at the end of the week which incorporated several of the techniques that we learned.

My Final Class Cake

The bottom layer is a beige fondant tier with green brush embroidery and green leaves as the border. This layer was draped with swags and decorated with sage green bows.

The middle layer is a sage green fondant tier with a quilted design accented with buttons. The border is lump design using alternating colors of the fondant.

The top layer is striped with alternating luster dust colors topped with ginko leaves with brush embroidery on the ends accented with buttons on the top of the leaves. The border is alternating colors of green and beige leaves.

The cake is topped off with 3 gumpaste calla lillies in white & green.

I am happy to see such a beautiful cake. I was going to attend that class but it was full and I'm scheduled for the next one. Would love to get more insight on what they teach. Your cake is not only perfect but the colors go well with eachother. Stunning! Out of words! Congrats ;-)

KarenMichi-The first 2 days were gumpaste flowers, third day was coloring the flowers using chalks, airbrush, dusts, etc. The last 2 days were fondant techniques and putting the final cake together. It's well worth going to. I didn't get to stay for the 3 day advanced workshop the next week which was cake sculpting & the crooked cakes. I highly recommend Colette's class. :D
