See this cake? I have had so many orders, inquiries and compliments on it, and I have to say, I love it too!
I learned how to make this cake and so many other techniques from an amazing online sugar art school called The Sugar Geek Show, run by the amazingly talented, much sought after teacher, multi national and international cake award winning, beautiful mom and wife, Lizzo Marek.
I discovered Liz on Facebook a couple of years ago, and was able to start learning live via Periscope 1 1/2 years ago. At the time she had a school on Patreon, but with the help of her hubby Dan, and the passion of wanting to teach, the two developed their own online school. Sugar Geek Show is jam packed with tips and tricks of the sugar art trade. Her work was always so daunting to me (she’s an amazing all around artist, a gift, sadly I was not blessed with naturally), but through her teachings I feel like I can achieve things I never thought I could before! From sugar, chocolate and sculpting, to how to make buttercream, she has it all! Check out this tutorial on how to make purple fondant from scratch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qszElwao-H4

In the last two years I have tried out a few other online sugar schools, but I just felt I couldn’t use what they had to teach in my business, even Sugar Geek Show 1 1/2 years ago, was beyond my reach. Just over a year ago, The Sugar Geek Show was revamped, and Liz added from the basics to the extreme, and I have been a subscriber ever since.
Whether you are a home baker that loves to play, or an experienced cake artists that always wants to be on trend, I highly recommend you subscribe to the Sugar Geek Show!
