OverviewThis course is directed toward students that want to master the art of sugar works. During the lessons students will learn a variety of techniques and possible applications of sugar decorations in pastry. A special focus will be put on the composition of a sugar sculpture from sketches to assembly through the application of advanced working techniques such as stamped sugar, poured sugar, pulled sugar, and blown sugar: each technique will be used to create the elements of a final centerpiece. The course will teach students how to produce sugar flowers, ribbons, leaves, fruits, small subjects, and spheres. An emphasis will be put in the application of powder, paste and liquid color in sugar as well as glitters, silver and gold leaf application. Prerequisites: Italian Confectionery Art or equivalent.
