The Grade 10 and Grade 12 pupils were very privileged to have Grace Stevens, an outstanding cake decorator and excellent international demonstrator from “Cupcakes by design”, demonstrate the making of plastic icing flowers which they could use for advanced garnishing in their practical exams.

Grace showed the pupils three different types of flowers, and 3 different types of fillers for the flowers as well as how to make leaves and how to ice a vanilla sponge cake correctly with white chocolate ganache and plastic icing, using a spirit level and set square.  The pupils were motivated by the inspirational and beautiful work that Grace showed them.  They are all looking forward to having her book in the library when it comes out later this year. Grace’s website is filled with inspirational cakes that both look amazing and taste delicious as well. Follow the link to her website here.
