We’ve all been there.

The clients arrive for their consultation and excitedly pull out their inspiration folder. Suddenly, you’re flooded with floral arrangements and china patterns and fabric samples and an ongoing debate about pink vs. fuchsia… Yikes.

Or the opposite: the clients bring nothing and sit quietly and wait for you to say… something. Anything. Double yikes.

Confidence to the rescue!

In an innovative, hands-on class format using actual client case studies (birthdays, groom’s cakes, anniversaries, etc.), Maggie will guide you through each step of the design process. From in-depth analyses of diverse color palettes to sketching with clarity to innovative adaptation of foundational decoration techniques, you will learn how to capture your artistic vision- and your clients’ hearts. The cherry on your faux tiered cake? Maggie will also teach the most popular large-scale sugar flowers that offer outstanding bang for your visual (and “time-is-money”) buck.
