Reimagining the classics is the ultimate evolution of design in any medium. Cake is no different. With a focus on wedding cakes we will examine some classic designs with an eye towards incorporating new techniques and products needed to achieve them. We’ll take a look at the current trends in wedding cakes and explore ways to incorporate your personal design point of view and develop a signature style of your own.


Along with learning the signature techniques that Chef Sousa has made famous through her high profile clients and appearances on Food Network, she will share her insight into the business of running a successful cake design studio.
