About the workshop

The creative path can seem mysterious. Let Maggie show you the way.

In an innovative five-day workshop, Maggie will be your mentor as you design and execute your own unique two-tier cake. 

  • First, evaluate a collection of design boards curated by Maggie and discover simple ways of filtering visual information.
  • Then, choose one design board that resonates with you. This will be your inspiration for creating your own faux cake.
  • Next, learn how to sketch your design with both clarity and flexibility. Maggie's feedback will help you articulate your vision. 
  • Finally, execute your design using innovative fondant and sugar flower techniques. Maggie will guide you every step of the way and discuss how to use components of single design as a portfolio-building collection. 
  • A comprehensive photo session rounds out your workshop. As always, Jess will pack up your masterpiece for a safe trip home!
