The Fairy on a Cushion Cake was the workshop Grace Stevens of Cupcakes By Design gave on her second day here in Johannesburg. After doing the Filler Flowers and Teddy Workshop I couldn’t wait to do the 3rd workshop. Once again we were hosted by Vicci in Northcliff and it was brilliant to spend time again with these 2 extremely talented ladies and meet new people who were just as keen to learn from Grace as I was. The pictures below show our work in progress, from top left all the dusting colours and gel colours we had to decide on for our fairies and their flowers, bottom left my fairy with her feet up waiting patiently for a pretty hairdo and wings and finally Grace’s swift hands deftly demo how she covers her cushion cake ready for her fairy to rest on.
Once again Grace taught us one of her beautiful cake designs and allowed us to express ourselves and bring out the character in our individual fairies. Here they are below with their cute but naughty faces happily resting without a care in the world on their cushions.
I was so delighted with my cake that no one was left alone until they had seen it or at least seen a picture of it! I do have a great group of family, friends and clients who were so supportive and shared in my excitement and thanks everyone for your facebook likes and comments they mean the world to me! When your 19 year old son shares this on his facebook page you know you are going up in the sugar craft rankings…. thanks Teigh!
Thank you Grace for such amazing workshops and I will treasure your book and practise and practise more till your next workshop in Johannesburg. Cape Town is certainly blessed to have your talent! A huge thank you to Vicci for introducing me to Grace and for all the laughs and the inspiration you share in your work.
