Inspired by her Grand Prize OSSAS 2009 cake titled “Dancing of the Sea”, Mercedes Strachwsky teaches a simple technique for making gumpaste and fondant coral in this informative video. You may even find just the right inspiration to enter our Coral Reef Inspiration Challenge Contest!


This video is part of “The Magic of the Sea” Video Sugar Art Tutorial ebook that is available at

In this video I show how to make what I like to call “Filler Coral” when I am creating the “Under the Sea” themed cakes. This filler coral is what ties all of the separate varieties of corals and creates a unison between them.

Whether you are a beginner or a professional cake decorator you will find very valuable information in the videos. I tried to include as much information as possible when creating them for you.
