Something tells me the first ICSA in Brisbane this weekend is going to be super fun!
A chance to catch up with local and international cake friends, meet new students and do some shopping. Looking over the workshop schedule made me wish I was able to attend some of the workshops as a student. There is a great range of talent in the instructor line-up. Impressive 3D modelling with Daniel Dieguez from Spain or incredible figurines with Nathasja Flapper from the Netherlands.
My main interest is in techniques that could be applied to wedding cakes, so if I had time to take a class, my top picks would be Powder painting techniques with Benny Rivera, cocoa butter painting with Calli Hopper, royal icing work with either Dawn Coffin-Parrott or Shayne Greenman (or both!), or the Shangr-La rose with Greg Cleary.
Thank you to all who have booked into my classes, I look forward to meeting you at the show!
