Internationally renowned cake designer, Maggie Austin, returns to her alma mater for this unique and exclusive professional course. Maggie loves exploring new decorating media and her delicate layered appliques combine wafer paper with fondant and gumpaste to bring couture sparkle to your cake design. Then, taking cues from the latest trends in floral artistry, Maggie breaks from conventional sugar flower placement. Adorn your creation with loose, organic arrangements of gumpaste flowers, leaves, and berries. 
Maggie Austin's designs are instantly recognizable to her legions of admirers. This former classical ballet dancer brought her imagination and artistic vision to life when she launched Maggie Austin Cake in 2010. She has since reached global distinction and is honored to have a client list that includes White House Christmas celebrations, Hollywood parties and royal weddings. Her design aesthetic is one of elegance and sophistication, with the subtle yet unmistakable mark of haute couture. Austin is an honors graduate of L'Art de la Pâtisserie at The French Pastry School and is one of our many distinguished alumni.
