Experience the Maggie Austin Workshop

Maggie's passion for instruction is rooted in her understanding that every artist is searching for growth. Shaping a soft bit of gumpaste into a gloriously delicate sugar petal requires a willingness to trust in the power of transformation. When artists gather together as students, they become a supportive community that expands technical knowledge, deepens creative commitment, and celebrates personal breakthroughs. For Maggie, guiding this extraordinary journey is an honor.

Far beyond sugar flowers, Maggie changed my entire perspective. I learned the importance of being kind to myself and my art.

When I took my first class with Maggie, I didn’t even know what gumpaste was. After a couple of short workshops you would think I’d been doing it for years. She is an exceptional teacher, and a gift to the cake world. 

Marion Attal, Mamie Brougitte Cakes

I am an 18 year old home baker and I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Maggie makes instructions incredibly clear while she maintains the complexity of her methods.

With concise direction and attention to detail, Maggie is able to constructively guide all her students, no matter what skill level. By far the best workshop I have EVER attended!

Maggie’s Wedding Intensive has been the best investment for my business and creative journey as a cake artist. Maggie is so patient, humble and encouraging and makes you feel comfortable to explore and create. 

Rebecca Pham, Becca Cakes in Houston, TX

I've taken classes from some of the best, but none compare to the patient, caring, artistic style of Maggie, who truly wants you to be comfortable in creating your own masterpiece.

Maggie emphasizes that ‘mistakes’ are real opportunities for you to put your unique stamp on something, to create a cake that would not be created in quite the same way by anyone else in the world. This is so validating and so very important. 


Every once and awhile in life, if you’re lucky, you meet someone that is truly genuine. Someone who is patient and kind but who also pushes you a bit. This is Maggie.
