I just had to quickly tell you about the New Jessica Harris Craftsy Classes! I’ve already bought both of them (I haven’t had time to watch either yet – but that’s a story for another day). Anyway – I cannot imagine that they’ll be anything less than stellar!
In both classes you’ll learn dozens of techniques to add amazing finishes and textures to your cakes! First up… Playful Techniques.
Easily achieve 30 amazing effects with step-by-step guidance from cake decorator Jessica Harris. Start class by learning how to paint fondant, so you can create incredible animal prints: cowhide, zebra, giraffe, leopard and jaguar! You’ll also discover inlay techniques that will help you do the same. Next, get innovative as you make beautiful wafer-paper feathers and delicate gelatin wings. Learn Jessica’s techniques for creating metallic mermaid scales and more that are nothing short of magic. Then, tap into trendy rustic finishes as you bring whitewashed wood, tree stump and fir bark effects to life. Discover three-dimensional woven and knitted textures perfect for surface designs and super-cute toppers. You’ll even learn to create Western-inspired textures sure to amaze any cowboy or cowgirl, and chic modern textures that capture the city.
Next up is her brand new class (just released Monday)… Elegant Techniques:
Easily create sensationally stylish fondant cake designs, wafer-paper embellishments, textured finishes and more with cake designer Jessica Harris. At the start of class, you’ll find out how to add designer depth to your cakes with fashion-inspired pleats and draping. Next, discover romantic looks including gorgeous diagonal ruffles and beautiful bas-relief flowers. Take another page from modern design as you learn to create ruching, billows, gathering, looped textures, quilted appliqué and more. Then, use wafer paper to make exquisite frilled flowers and architectural ruffles. Expand your repertoire further with techniques for graphic pin-dot silhouettes, gorgeous chevrons and 3-D sugar collages. You’ll even discover cosmopolitan cake design ideas as Jessica teaches you finishes inspired by chic urban lofts.
When you buy a Craftsy class, you own it for life and you can watch it as often as you like, over and over again.. in you PJ’s if it makes you happy 🙂
