Fearlessly take on your next sugar flower

In this course you will expand your technique toolbox that you can apply to all of your sugar flowers, get the colours you’ve always wanted and seriously impress your clients, friends and family with realistic flowers. 

All of this without buying expensive silicone molds, unnecessary tools, and learning the shortcuts to stress-free (and dare I say fun!) sugar flower making.

Before I tell you everything about this course, let’s talk about who it’s really for…

You want to learn the techniques of creating stunning sugar flowers but also want to be able to transfer those techniques to more than just a couple of flowers. You dream of creating elegant sugar flowers that will blow away your future clients, friends, and family and take your cakes to the next level.

  • A new and budding cake decorator who can bake a delicious cake but has only just dipped their toe in the world of sugar flowers and you already find it to be so exciting and invigorating

  • A cake creator with years under your belt, wanting to shift your clientele and business’ aesthetic to high-end, elegant cakes that align fully with your artistic vision

  • An experienced cake decorator who wants to spend time on the creative side of your business instead of re-creating other people’s work. You might also want to refine your artistic vision so that you can create work that reflects your true self and build a portfolio of what you want to create moving forward

I Have a Deeper Understanding of Realistic Sugar Flowers

Nilusha

I struggled before with thinning my petals, they always looked too thick. I learned how to use my ball tool and veining tool correctly to give my petals movement. I learned how to properly dry petals, realistic dusting techniques and the list goes on. I have a much deeper understanding of creating sugar flowers now. I’ve received so many compliments from friends & family, they say my flowers look so realistic and that was my main goal which I couldn’t have achieved without the Perfect Peony Course.

Love and Recommend

Stefanie M

I loved this course! I made amazing peonies and flowers from the 5 day challenge on my first try. The Facebook group is indispensable. Alexandria and others are always available for help. The course was full of content, clear and well put together. I would recommend it to anyone looking to take their decorating skills to the next level. It is not just spending money on a class it will be investing in your future and business.

Time Saving & Feeling Motivated

Hira

It's been a wonderful experience with you and all the amazing flower friends from the academy . Absolutely loving all the appreciation . The perfect peony course is just incredible and detailed from stem to calyx! In a matter of minutes it took my skill to a much higher level . The main thing I feel is I wouldn't have managed to create such flowers in years on my own . Such a time saver ! The ironic part I didn't touch my collection of peony cutters 🤭 only just the basic teardrop .

Confident & Inspired

Marie

Before Alexandria's Peony course my flowers just did not have the finish. I was always struggling with petals to get them really thin. I also had lots of issues with dusting. After the course and completing my first peony I feel confident enough to try any flower. I feel I have really cracked the realistic dusting effect as well. I could see that my petals were thinner and the finish was definitely closer to what I was looking to achieve. I was so inspired by the flowers and cakes over at Finespun Cakes and am so grateful to have discovered Alexandria.

If you absolutely love creating sugar flowers...

You’ve probably been told you need to buy new veiners, cutters and tools for each flower.

That’s the only way! Right?

Absolutely not.

You need to build new techniques, understand how best to use and manipulate your gumpaste, and you can take on any flower with confidence.

(Yes, you do need some tools, but not as many as you'd think!)

It’s time to stop messing around and wasting your time and money and just learn these proven techniques

Here’s why you’re not getting the sugar flower results you want:

  • REASON 1: Have you invested in yourself?

    I’m talking about books, courses, and practice. No matter how fabulous you are, you will always learn something new from someone else’s experience. And you’d be crazy not to save yourself that time! It takes dedication to perfect a craft. Want your 1st flower to look like someone else’s 1000th? It probably won’t happen. But with the right guidance and techniques your 10th will look better than someone else’s 100th :)

  • REASON 2: Do you have the right tools & equipment?

    I’ve been harping on about not needing fancy things but you do need the basics. If you haven’t invested in a pasta machine yet, your petals just won’t get to that elusive thinness. If you don’t have the right gumpaste recipe, your flowers may fall flat. Invest where it counts, ignore where it doesn’t.

  • REASON 3: Are you passionate about this artform?

    Time for some tough love- do you actually want to improve or do you want a magic wand to do it for you? Maybe you just love baking and want to use fresh flowers, that’s totally fine! You have to not only want to do this in your free time, but get excited to do be able to do it!

Introducing...

Creating the Perfect Gumpaste Peony!

A complete A-Z course for sugar flower creators from making a batch of gumpaste to arranging your Perfect Peony onto a cake. From lifeless meh flowers to WOW are those real?

I've taken everything I've learned from 8 years of sugar flower making, creating hundreds of wedding cakes and countless hours invested.

These techniques are used weekly in my business and I’ve used these flowers to differentiate myself from the competition and create irresistibly elegant cakes for my clients.

In this course I'll show you how you can do that too.

Creating the Perfect Peony isn’t so much a paint-by-numbers guide to your best flowers yet, but it’s...

A totally new way to view flower making. Gone are the days of spending too much time, money, and stress trying to figure all of this out on your own. I’m here to guide you through the whole process and answer your questions along the way.

Not only that, the techniques you’ll learn will expand the way you think about creating flowers from unique petal shapes to flawless and flowing sugar flower arrangements.

The end result: You, feeling like a flower queen (or king) and striding into your next day, ready to beautify the heck out of your cakes.

Testimonial

From a first time sugar flower maker!

My First Sugar Flowers

Quinny

I had a lot of uncertainties regarding sugar flowers making, such as if I'd like the process, how to make the flowers look realistic, how thin the petals should be, how to shape them, how to colour them and arrange them, etc… The Peony course provided tremendous value-- leading me by the hands every step of the way to finish a project that could be otherwise overwhelming. I love how fluffy my peonies are! I am very happy just by looking at the movements of the petals :). I would definitely recommend Alexandria and the Finespun Cakes Academy to anyone who is interested to learn sugar flowers.
