Overview: Join Julia in Brisbane, Australia at International Cake Show Australia (ICSA), hosted by the Australian Cake Artists & Decorators Association (ACADA), for this second class in her three-part series. Stencils can sometimes lead to cookie-cutter designs, but, in this one-day hands-on session, Julia demonstrates that stenciled cookies can be just as unpredictable and original as any other type of cookie – plus light years faster to make! (Exactly what every cookie business owner needs – designs both beautiful and budget-friendly!) You’ll mix and match elements in two of Julia’s popular Dynamic Duos™ stencil sets, and couple them with several other techniques, to create designs that are nothing short of fantastical! You’ll also receive an advanced lesson in airbrushing that covers multi-color applications on one stencil using precision-control and shading techniques.

Skill Level: This class is suitable for all skill levels, as Julia will cover each technique in great detail.

Prerequisites: Some airbrushing experience will be helpful, but is not necessary.

What You’ll Learn (~10 Techniques):

  • Airbrushing (both precision-control and shading)
  • Stenciling
  • Wafer paper appliqués
  • Dusting with compressed petal dusts
  • Fondant appliqués
  • Fondant whimsy roses
  • Hand-piped roses
  • Basic button royal icing transfers
  • Modeling chocolate ribbons and bows

What You’ll Take Home: 2 to 3 elaborately decorated 2-D cookies, similar to those depicted, drawing on two different Dynamic Duos™ stencil sets: one featuring flowers and butterflies and another featuring princesses and a castle scene. Designs will vary with students’ imaginations!

Schedule and Other Notes: Class is expected to run from 8:00 am to approximately 4:00 pm. Please note that the finish time is estimated. The workshop may finish early or slightly later depending on students’ work progress. All cookies and tools will be supplied. Click on the “REGISTER NOW!” button for more information.
