You guys. Once again Craftsy has offered an amazing deal to my readers for a brand new Craftsy Class: Sweet Seasons Summer Sunflower Craftsy Class: only $14.99 this week!!
Last night I watched this class and gosh… I’d have never dreamed making sunflowers this detailed would be as simple as it was. With summer just around the corner and flowers showing up on cakes everywhere, now is the perfect time to learn to make these beautiful sugar sunflowers!
Now don’t get me wrong – there are a lot of steps and details to making these… but I’m convinced that if you want to make sunflowers, almost anybody could learn how by watching this class.
In 4 full lessons, Nicholas Lodge really breaks down every step of the process into easy-to-follow instructions and I love that he shows you how to make them with molds and without – if you want to use more basic tools vs. investing in flower-specific molds!
Here are the details from Craftsy about the Sweet Seasons Summer Sunflower Craftsy Class:
Discover simple secrets for setting your sugar sunflowers apart in this special mini-class led by popular instructor Nicholas Lodge. Start by learning two methods for forming and coloring the iconic sunflower center using either a mold or working by hand, and find out how to add eye-catching texture to your center. Then, explore different techniques for cutting your petals and attaching them to your center for an end result that truly shines. Your sunflower wouldn’t be complete without calyxes, so Nicholas shows you how to create those next. And, he’ll share tricks for cutting out, thinning and veining your most realistic leaves yet. Finally, Nicholas shares coloring techniques for both a traditional sunny palette and one of a deep ruby hue — perfect for a gorgeous autumn-theme cake — before walking you through each step of assembling your sweet sunflowers.
