Spring & Summer 2017 Workshop- The Art of Technique

Join acclaimed cake designer Maggie Austin at beautiful River Farm in Alexandria, VA for an unconventional cake and sugar flower design workshop. The three-day intensive course will cover Maggie’s most popular signature techniques through interactive demonstrations and playful hands-on exploration. From perfectly imperfect sugar flowers in lushly romantic arrangements to fearless freehand painting to a (rather unexpected) pearl-making method, create your own tiered display cake with individual guidance from Maggie.
