It only got rediscovered recently for making beautiful edible flowers used in cake decorating. Wafer paper does not get affected by humidity, which makes it a perfect medium for Australian weather conditions. It is also ideal to decorate buttercream cakes, as the blooms are very light and can be kept in the fridge, unlike gum paste flowers.

During this hands-on class, you'll be taken through the basics of wafer paper, how to manipulate and shape the paper into realistic looking petals and foliage. You will also learn different colouring methods as well as making centres from wafer paper. Lastly, you will be using floristry skills to assemble your edible beauties into an elegant floral spray.

Anna Maria is a patient and conscientious teacher, making sure you understand all the tiny details and learn the skills you need to replicate what you learn outside of the classroom. Her passion for her work (and her students) is clear and her attention to detail is impeccable. She spends a lot of time preparing and planning for her classes which ensure that her classes run smoothly and you learn techniques clearly. She is very helpful and her craftsmanship is stunning. Her own work is beautiful however she is also able to transfer her knowledge to her students so that our work is great too.
