About the workshop

We're taught that creativity is something you're born with (or not). We're taught that inspiration is something that strikes like a bolt of lightening (or not). We are overwhelmed and isolated with disjointed Pinterest boards and half-finished projects and looming client deadlines.

It's time to let it all go.

In an innovative four-day workshop, Maggie invites you to unlearn, unwind, and open yourself up to a different path to custom cake design that reflects your unique artistry. This is no cookie-cutter class. This is your vision coming to life.

This intimate session has limited enrollment and is all hands-on.

  • First, evaluate a wide-ranging collection of design boards curated by Maggie and discover simple ways of filtering visual information.
  • Then, choose one design board that resonates for you. This will be your inspiration for creating your own unique faux two-tiered 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 techniques and large-scale sugar flowers. Maggie will guide you every step of the way. The creative energy in the room will be palpable! 
  • As a special treat, Jess will demonstrate a fun (and inexpensive) way of making your own canvas photo backgrounds.
