Course date and times:
  • Monday 2nd March: 9:30am to 4:00pm

Join Tessa on this one day course to learn how to pipe royal icing flowers using a flat flower nail, a deep cupped lily nail and a cocktail stick. You will learn how to pipe a blossom, lily and rose and how to adapt your piping technique for a wider range of flowers, such as primroses, pansies, alstromeria and carnations.

You will also be able to develop your piping skills further by creating delicate filigree butterfly wings and learning how to put these together for a 3D effect.

Tessa will share her wealth of knowledge on Royal Icing, from how to make it and adapt the consistency for both flowers and filigree piping, to the various ways that Royal Icing can be coloured for different effects. 

You will leave with the confidence to pipe and with your very own beautiful display board with flowers and butterflies.
